Robot Remote Configuration

I wonder if there is a good way to install robots/extensions across multiple machines. For example, if I published a new automation that requires Citrix extension, can I push the Citrix Extension to all my robots instead of singing in every robot machine and install the extension individually?
It would be great if we can have this control in Orchestrator.

Hi @Zhen_Wang1
Orchestrator currently does not have a centralised push mechanism to install robots/extensions across multiple machines. However, you could use the UiPathStudio.msi command line interface to perform a silent installation and if you have a software distribution tool like Microsoft SCCM, you can use that tool to perform mass Robot deployment. You can find the command line parameters of UiPathStudio.msi here - https://docs.uipath.com/installation-and-upgrade/docs/studio-command-line-parameters.

In addition, we also have a command line for activating the various extensions. If you want to install the Citrix extension you can run the command “SetupExtensions /CitrixClient”. The file SetupExtensions.exe can be found in “C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiPath”. More details here - https://docs.uipath.com/installation-and-upgrade/docs/studio-extension-for-citrix
