I have an scenario for which I would like to explore the “Attended” robot functionality of UiPath. A user needs to process for approval a number of items assigned to them in a web application. The steps are straight forward and do not require any decision making.
In my reading of the UiPath robot guide my understanding of the deployment steps are as follows:
- Install the UiPath Robot on the users workstation and connect the robot to the orchestrator server using an Attended robot license.
- Deploy the process automation to the robot using the orchestrator.
- The user logged onto the workstation would then we able to launch the automation when required from the system tray.
I have a question regarding the setup of the attended robot definition on the Orchestrator Server:
- When creating the robot you must specify a Username. Do you need to create a dedicated Active Directory user account for the attended robot like you would for an Unattended robot?
