Enabling the Pega RPA Service to simulate a Secure Attention Sequence

Before you begin

Perform the steps in Installing the Pega RPA Service.

Use the Microsoft Windows Local Group Policy Editor to enable the Pega RPA Service to simulate the Crtl+Alt+Del key press so that it can log off a Pega Robot Runtime user when that user session ends.

  1. On the Windows task bar, click Start and enter gpedit.msc in the Search box.
  2. In the Local Group Policy Editor, click Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Logon Options > Disable or enable software Secure Attention Sequence.
  3. On the Disable or enable software Secure Attention Sequence dialog, click Enabled.
  4. In the Options column, click the list and select Services.
  5. To close the Local Group Policy Editor, click Apply and then click OK.
  6. Start the Regedit program and expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies > System.
  7. Add a DWORD type value key called SoftwareSASGeneration and set it to 1 (one).
  8. From the installation folder, copy the RpaSchedule.json file into the C:\programdata\Pegasystems folder. In version 8.0 SP1 and earlier, the folder is C:\programdata\OpenSpan.
Restart the service any time you change the credentials, the RPAService.config file, or the RpaSchedule.json file settings.

After you enable the Pega RPA Service, to use this service, you must configure Pega Robot Runtime.
