Robot registration and work group assignment for RPA (unattended) robots
Every unattended robot must successfully register with Pega Robot Manager before it can run automations.
The registration process is performed by an administrative operator (also called a registration operator) that has an appropriate access role. During registration, the robot is assigned into a base work group based on the configuration request of the robot or by the configuration of decision tables. A successful registration assigns the robot to the correct base work group with the appropriate access groups and roles.
If you have multiple work groups and you want to move robots between them either manually or by using a schedule, you need to define a list of eligible work groups that are mapped to an administrative operator that is used to register the robots.
With Pega Robot Manager, you can update the decision tables described below through the user interface. For more information, see Changing settings from the Pega Robot Manager interface.
- Creating a registration operator
To start registration, robots use a shared set of credentials. These credentials are for an operator that is sometimes called the administrative operator or registration operator. These credentials are used only to establish an initial connection with Pega Robot Manager.
- Configuring Pega Robot Manager
Pega Robot Manager allows you to manage your RPA robots; start, stop, terminate and schedule them. You can configure it to suit the needs of your organization. You can also create and view reports on robot health, exceptions and usage data.
