Accessing the unattended robot setup

The Unattended Robot option walks you through the necessary steps for setting up a successful unattended automation process. It can be accessed from the following places:

  • The Create new menu of the Orchestrator toolbar, via the Unattended Robot button.

  • The tenant-level Robots page, via the Unattended setup button.

  • The tenant-level Machines page, via the Unattended setup button.

For detailed information on the concepts mentioned above and on the particular steps to take, see the sections below.

UiPath hosted (Automation Cloud Robot)

A UiPath hosted unattended setup executes jobs on a Serverless Automation Cloud Robot.

To setup a Serverless machine configuration:

  1. Navigate to the Create unattended robot page, then select the UiPath hosted (Automation Cloud Robot) tab.
    The Serverless option is the default selection.
  2. Click Next. This displays the list of all existing serverless machines.
  3. Select an existing serverless machine, or create a new one.
    If you create a new serverless machine, provide a Name and, optionally, a Description, then click Next. The new serverless machine is displayed on the list.
  4. Click Next to see the list of available robot accounts, or to create a new one.
  5. If you create a new robot account, provide a Robot Name and, optionally, select the Run only one job at a time option. The new robot account is displayed on the list.
    Note:

    For this specific flow, Robot Credentials cannot be added, rendering it incompatible with Windows accounts.

  6. Select a robot account, then click Next. This displays the list of available folders where the robot account can be assigned.
  7. Select a folder, then click Next to complete the unattended setup.
    Note:

    You cannot select folders with assigned Serverless machines. To choose such a folder, unassign the Serverless machine first.

Self-hosted (Unattended Robot)

A self-hosted unattended setup executes jobs on your own machine template.

To setup a static machine template configuration:

  1. Navigate to the Create unattended robot page, then select the Self-hosted (Unattended Robot) tab.
    The Machine template (Static) option is the default selection.
  2. Click Next. This displays the list of all existing machine templates.
  3. Select an existing machine template, or add a new one.
    If you add a new machine template, provide a Name, assign the appropriate runtimes, then click Next. The new machine template is displayed on the list.
    Note:

    You need to have at least one execution slot available (an unallocated Production (Unattended) runtime), so you can assign it to the newly created template.

  4. Click Next to see the list of available robot accounts, or to create a new one.
  5. To execute both foreground and background jobs, choose Use a specific Windows account to create the new robot account. Provide:
    • The Robot Name - the name for your robot.

    • The Domain/Username - the domain and username used to log on to the machine on which UiPath Robot is installed. The credentials must exist in the selected credential store.

    • The Credential Store - the named location where you want to store the credentials of this account.

    • The Password - the password for the Windows account which is used to log on to the machine on which UiPath Robot is installed.

    • The Credential Type - the type of credentials you provided for the unattended robot.

    • [Optionally] Select the Run only one job at a time option.

    The new robot account is displayed on the list.

  6. To Execute background only jobs, provide a Robot Name and, optionally, select the Run only one job at a time option. The new robot account is displayed on the list.
  7. Select a robot account, then click Next. This displays the list of available folders where the robot account can be assigned.
  8. Select a folder, then click Next. This page also displays useful information about your machine template.
  9. Click Close to complete the unattended setup.
