Hi @Rajesh_Manikandan
In my opinion, when using attended automation, the user should login to applications on behalf of the robot. In addition, the credential should be the user’s credential. In most situations, when we speak of attended automation, it is still ultimately the user that is accountable for the processes that the robot runs.

Having said that, it is of course possible to also automate the login step. In most situations, the robot will still use the user’s credentials but make sure you are not hardcoding the username and password in your workflow. One way to store the credential securely is to use Windows Credential Manager and use the UiPath.Credential.Activities package.
