Managing accounts and groups

Organization administrators can view, add, edit, or remove accounts and groups for the Automation Cloud organization from the Admin > Accounts and Groups page at the organization level.

Adding groups

You can add new groups if you want to define a custom mix of roles and license allocation rules to use for a particular group of accounts. For example, the ones needed by your colleagues in the Accounting department to use Automation Cloud.

  1. In the Users and Groups page, navigate to the Groups tab.
  2. Click Add Group. The Add Group window is displayed.
  3. Fill in the Name field.
  4. On the Group Members field, add users to the group. Only users that have been invited to your organization beforehand are displayed here.

Unlike default user groups, custom groups need to be added manually to your services to allocate roles.


Adding accounts

For information about the different account types, see About accounts.

Adding user accounts

For information about working with user accounts in Automation Cloud, see Managing User Accounts.

Adding robot accounts

For more information about this type of account, when and why to use it, see Robot accounts.

  1. Go to Admin > Accounts and Groups and select the Robot accounts tab.
  2. In the top right, click Add Robot Account.
    The Add Robot Account panel opens at the right of the page.
  3. In the Name field, type a descriptive name for the account.
    Choose wisely. You cannot change the name of the robot account later. If you need to rename it, you must delete the account and create a new one with a new name.
  4. Optionally, under Group Membership, select the checkbox for groups to which you want to add the account.
    Adding the account to one or more groups means it inherits any roles, user licenses, or robot settings defined for the group.
  5. Click Add.
    A success message appears at the top of the panel and further guidance is displayed.

The robot account is added and is now visible on the Robot accounts page. It is also added to the groups you selected.

Continue the setup of the robot account in UiPath Orchestrator as you would set up a user account for unattended use: Unattended Setup.

Adding accounts to groups

Adding an account - either user or robot - to a group means the account inherits the roles and licenses assigned to the group.

You can check roles for a group from Orchestrator and you can check license allocation rules for the group.

  1. Go to Admin > Accounts and Groups and select the Groups tab.
  2. At the right end of the group row, click Edit.
  3. In the Add Users and Groups text box, type to search for a user (local or directory account), directory group, or robot account.
  4. Select the account from the list of results to add it to the group.
  5. Click Save.

Auto-provisioned accounts are not shown
If your organization is integrated with a third-party identity provider and if auto-provisioning was set up, directory accountdirectory account - An account that was created and is managed in an active directory that is external to UiPath. A directory account can be referenced and used in a UiPath product when an external directory is linked to UiPath. This includes accounts that belong to a Windows Active Directory, Azure Active directory, or another external identity provider (IdP). Organization administrators can assign roles and licenses, configure robot setup, and add directory accounts to local groups in the same way as for a local account (UiPath account).s or directory groups that are being auto-provisioned may not be shown in the Add Users and Groups text box, even though they benefit from this group's resources.
If so, a message appears under the text box:

Editing an account or group

You edit user and robot accounts in the same way:

  1. Go to Admin > Accounts and Groups and select the appropriate tab.
  2. At the right end of a row, click Edit.
  3. Make changes as needed.
  4. Click Save.

Checking the roles for an account or group

You can check the roles assigned to an account or group from UiPath Orchestrator.
