Disabling Cloud Robots - VM Machines
We are now automatically disabling Cloud Robot - VM machines that are not licensed. This can happen either when your licensing plan expires, or if you do not have sufficient robot units for all of your machines.
If you are in this situation, a notification banner is displayed and you enter a 14-day grace period (Enterprise), or a 3-day grace period (Pro) before machines are disabled.
Acquiring or renewing the necessary licenses (licensing plan and robot units) before the grace period ends prevents machines from being disabled.
If you find that you have disabled machines, see the Disabled machines FAQs.
Automatic VMs for Cloud Robots
Escape the burden of creating and managing virtual machines for your Automation Cloud robots. We introduced the automatic option that allows us to create and manage virtual machine pools on your behalf. Just input the maximum number of machines the pool should contain, and make sure you have enough robot units for the machines to run. For more details, see the relevant topics in this page.
Automation Cloud Robots - VM Availability Profiles
Adjust your robot units consumption by selecting an availability profile for your machine. By choosing to automatically shut down your machines after an idle duration, you can recover and reuse their corresponding robot units. You also have the option to keep your machines always on. Selecting another machine availability profile than the default one, extra robot units are consumed.

Fine-grained Permissions for External Apps
Administrators can now configure fine-grained tenant or folder permissions for confidential apps by assigning them to folders or tenants in Orchestrator. An external app gets the permissions required to perform particular operations in a folder or tenant through one or more roles.
The app gets the union of all scopes defined for it in Automation Cloud and Orchestrator. Deleting either of these scopes leaves the app with access levels according to the remaining scope.
You can also use groups to simplify external app management, as groups allow you to manage objects with similar needs together.
