Is a Robot required to be on a machine in order to use Get Credentials?

I’m currently working on a system that has a different setup I’m not accustomed to. There are 3 systems in this configuration.

Studio - This system has UiPath Studio installed, but no robot
Orchestrator - This system is dedicated to Orchestrator
Robot - This system only has a UiPath Robot

When I’m in Studio I’m unable to publish projects, or even test any assets because I continually get a message indicating that “A robot with username xxxxxxxxxx is not defined”. Is there any way to connect and test without having a robot on the Studio server?

You might look into getting a Development license for the Studio system.
