Alas I don’t have an answer to that but i was wondering whether i can ask you something. I assume that each user doesn’t have an attended bot license because it would get really expensive. How did you configure the group so that perhaps a single license is used?
It all works when i’m triggering the app from the machine that hosts the unattended bot but not from a different machine. I thought that the App URL would simply connect to Orchestrator and then to the unattended robot machine :-/
So does this mean that the unattended bot needs to be installed on all Machines that use the App? I guess that’s where a machine template comes in then because multiple machines but one license.
Thank you for the help! I think the problem is that it doesn’t work as i expected. Studio with Assistant needs to be installed on the machine that you use to start the App via the Invite. The excel sheets that the process needs is on Machine A but i’m triggering the App from Machine B. I wanted the App to be triggered from Machine B but any unattended bot processing should be done one Machine A. This doesn’t seem to be the case.
It’s weird because the process on Machine A can be triggered via Orchestrator on Machine B, so why on earth doesn’t the App follow the same logic.
Thanks for all the advice and it works perfectly for a stand-alone app (ie: a label) but fails when a process must be triggered. Perhaps it can be a future improvement to the App feature or it was designed this way
What was tested:
1] Invited user - with no UiPath software - is invited to use the App and receives an email.
2] Invited user is given enough permissions that they can run the process from the UiPath Cloud.
3] They run the process it triggers the process on the unattended robot which is on a different machine.
So the App opens but when it triggers the My Test App process it fails because the App expects the process to exist on the user’s machine. That’s why it works like a charm when the same steps are taken but on the machine hosting the unattended bot.
So it seems like all invited users must at least have UiPath Assistant which also shares the unattended bot license. I was hoping that multiple users could use the App but the process runs on one machine.
Other than this, I think this is a UiPath Feature that could make a huge difference but i don’t see the full benefit until this gets resolved. With UiPath, each process user must have an account and as a minimum, the Assistant. This is how licensing is managed.
