Create Assistants in Control Room

Robot assistants can work together with humans to complete automated tasks.

When added as an assistant, a robot:

  • is started directly by the end user via the UI of the Robocorp Assistant
  • can be configured to accept inputs from the user at various stages during the process
  • will report back to Control Room the status of the operation, and any artifacts produced during its execution.

For assistants, Control Room is used to:

  • host the actual robot code (just like with Unattended automations)
  • create and maintain the list of assistants available in a workspace
  • provide a user interface to review each robot assistant run and any created artifacts.

Adding a robot as an assistant

  • Create your robot as usual, using our developer tools.
  • Navigate to the desired workspace in your organization.
  • Upload your robot to the cloud.
  • Navigate to the Assistants section, and click on the New Assistant button. Provide a name for the assistant, for example, My assistant. Select your robot, and click Create: Creating an assistant
