From 2017.1.* Onward
To better convey the relationship between Robots, humans and Orchestrator, the following changes have occurred to them:
The Front Office Robot has been renamed to Attended. It cannot run under a locked screen and it cannot be started from Orchestrator. This type of Robot is triggered by a user and runs only under human supervision.
The Back Office Robot has been renamed to Unattended. It can be started from Orchestrator and can run under a locked screen without human supervision.
The DevTest Robot has been renamed to Free. It has all the features of the Unattended Robot, but it cannot be used in production environments.
If you’re updating Robot information in Orchestrator, you no longer need to restart the UiPath Robot service. It’s all done automagically!
