I am using Automation Cloud Community Edition and Studio Pro community edition.
I defined a machine for my PC and created Unattended robot and run the job on the machine (my PC).
When I started the Studio pro on my PC, I found a message on the Studio saying “detected unattended robot as the license type. based on the terms and conditions this license should only be used for troubleshooting purposes”
I think that I cannot use some function on the Studio. But, I could create a new project and publish a package to the Orchestrator tenant feed on the studio.
What does “troubleshooting purposes” mean on a machine of unattended license?
What kind of restriction is applied to the Studio in this context?
I would appreciate it if anyone could help me understand this license issue and the restriction of Studio mentioned above.
(By the way, I could not do any modification to the workflow on the Studio when I created a robot of “Testing” type on my machine (PC). But, it seems that I can do anything on the Studio in the case of “Unattended” type. This is the point where I am confused.)
An Unattended Bot is meant to run automations without human interaction on machines that are on VMs.
When you are developing automations using Studio, you either use a Studio/Studio Pro bot or a Citizen Developer Bot (if you’re using StudioX) to do the building and testing.
Under certain circumstances you may have to connect to a machine on which an Unattended bot has been deployed to troubleshoot an automation that is meant to run in Unattended mode. The warning indicates that under normal circumstances you are supposed to use a Studio robot to do your normal development work.
This situation is even more controlled in case of Attended automations. If you are connected to an Attended type bot when you open up Studio, you can still run the automation from the Studio project, but you cannot edit the project.
The warning indicates that under normal circumstances you are supposed to use a Studiorobot to do your normal development work.
Let me clarify this sentence.
Are my understandings below correct?
I am allowed to use the Studio/Studio Pro as usual even on the PC which is connected to the Orchestrator in Unattended mode.
Even when the warning is displayed on the Studio/Studio Pro, I can edit, debug , and publish the project in the Studio/Studio Pro without any differences from the usual Studio’s development functionality.
I appreciate it if you could confirm my understandings above if they are correct.
If something is wrong in my understandings, please point out and correct it.
Here is what you need to understand from a ‘legal’ prospective as you agree to Terms & Conditions set by UiPath when you use their license and products.
UiPath Studio/Studio Pro License: Should be used for Development of New workflows
UiPath Unattended Robot License: Should be used to run the workflows you built in Unattended Mode. This license should not be used to open Studio/Studio Pro to build new workflows or modify existing ones. At the max it can used to open existing workflows and run it via the studio to find where the issue is occurring.
