Configuring Pega Robot Runtime for RDA mode to support Basic authentication

Complete the following steps so that Basic authentication is supported in Pega Robotic Automation Runtime for RDA mode. This configuration enables RDAs to retrieve a package assignment from Pega Robot Manager.

  1. In Pega Platform, configure the DefaultAuthenticationTypeForRuntimeOnlyUser Dynamic System Setting to have the value Basic.

  2. Configure the CommonConfig.xml file:

    1. In the Servers section, find the Server element with the name RobotManager.

      For example, <Server name="RobotManager" enabled="true" baseURL="" RPA="false" workgroup="My Group" robotName="{MachineName}" authenticationType="Basic"/>.
    2. Set the enabled attribute to true.

    3. Set the RPA attribute to false.

    4. Set the authenticationType attribute to Basic or empty.

    5. Set the baseURL attribute to the Pega Platform URL on which Pega Robot Manager is installed and ensure that it ends in prweb.

      For example,
    6. In the Servers section, find the Server element with the name IdP or ADFS.

    7. Set the enabled attribute to false.

    8. If there are elements for both servers, delete the ADFS element, because it is deprecated.

  3. Configure the RuntimeConfig.xml file by setting the Robotics/PackageServer/baseUrl attribute to use the Pega Robotic Automation Package Server URL for package deployment.

  4. Start Pega Robotic Automation Runtime and enter your user name and password.
