Using Robot 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 (like with Workforce Robots)
  • 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

  1. Create your robot as usual, using our developer tools.
  2. Navigate to the desired workspace in your organization.
  3. Upload your robot to the cloud.
  4. 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
