Using RPA Developer License in Prod Orchestrator

I have an RPA Developer license and am trying to run my automations in our Prod Orchestrator environment. I was previously using a separate Attended User license to run these automations, but I was recently informed that this was not necessary, that I could use my developer license in Prod as well. However, I’m having difficulty setting this up. When I select “RPA Developer” as the Attended Robot license type, it gives me an error that there are no additional developer licenses available. That leaves me with the only other option that wouldn’t consume an additional Attended User license: “Inherit license from user’s group.” I checked to make sure the group I belong to has an RPA Developer license assigned to it and it does, however, I can’t connect in Assistant. Can I use my same machine key to connect to Orchestrator with the inherited license? It’s showing “connected, unlicensed.” What am I missing? What is the normal setup process for Citizen Developers & RPA Developers to be able to access their automations on Prod?

Hello, just checking to see if anyone has any insight into the license configuration to be able to use the Developer license on both Dev and Prod? It seems as though once it’s allocated in one environment, it can’t be allocated again. Is there a way to allocate a license to both environments?

Hi @ashley.n.andres

To be crisp you cannot use the same license here

But for the group license part is it that another user in the group would have already consumed the license…so even that is not your way now

If you are having the developer license in prod itself then you dont need to assign an attended license because you already are a developer and you will have a studio and you can run from
That studio

We prefer to keep our Dev & Prod environments separate & only use Prod to run published automations. What is the typical setup for this? Right now I am using my RPA Developer license in our Dev environment and a separate Attended license in our Prod environment to run the automations. I was told by UiPath that the Developer license can be used in both environments and I was hoping someone had a similar setup they could share before reaching back out to our UiPath sales team. Any help/insight is appreciated!

Hi @ashley.n.andres

So to your point

Say machine A is your developer machine with user a then when you connect your assistant you have to provide the orch url and other details which are specific to the dev instance alone

So it is tied to your dev instance but no link to the prod.

So on prod to run it, an attended or separate dev license is needed as you have to run the bot in different instance

But even I am waiting to know if we can share and how. If you get an answer from someone or from uipath team please do share. Would be very happy as even we will try the same

Cheers
