Dear automation experts,
We are running a number of unattended robots. For a single process there is a perceived need to provide business with an option to pause, halt or stop a running unattended automation. While we are working to assague this perceived need, we would like to provide one department with an interim stop or halt button for a single process.
My question is as follows:
What, specifically happens when I use the “Install” option in Assistant for a given robot name? Is anything actually downloaded to the Assistant if the robot to be “installed” is of an unattended type? Is “install” a correct term for what the options does – or is this option more akin to “configure.”
It is not clear to me – again, working with unattended robots – if anything is actually downloaded to the Windows-instance with Assistant (and only Assistant) installed.
If one is willing to forego the granularity offered by a custom-written solution involving calls to Orchestrator’s API, can Assistant be used purely to send start and stop commands to an unattended robot?
