The product and development teams at Automation Anywhere have been on a roll with new features and updates coming out with each release. In this post, we’ll dive into some of the most popular and most requested features that were newly added with .18 (build 7560).
With the .18 release, Discovery Bot enables developers to make smarter and faster decisions when reviewing bot recordings
Users also have the ability to hide sensitive screenshots from the created recordings – opting instead to write detailed descriptions as to not accidentally display PII or other sensitive data
Recorder layout updates mean bigger screenshots and easier to read/review processes
Biggest news of all – Discover Bot is now available as a part of Automation Anywhere Community Edition and the Automation Anywhere Enterprise Free Trial
Enterprise A2019 Platform
Citizen Developer licensing entitlement empowers citizen developers to create and run their own automations
Users with this entitlement can now create and run bots (including bots with triggers) on their own devices
Great for attended automation use cases and utility bots which may be created to serve the citizen developers who create them
Bot Insight data is now accessible from Tableau via the Bot Insight Tableau connector.
Bot Insight dashboard can now be easily imported and exported using Bot Lifecycle Management
Bot Insight license management has also been improved to support the assignment of licenses to users to enable them to view and perform tasks on business dashboards.
These licenses can be assigned directly to a user – irrespective of their assigned roles
AARI Web package enables bots to perform actions such as assign, query, and cancel tasks.
AARI dashboards are now supported in Bot Insight
AARI admins, managers, and users can now delete AARI requests (using the AARI Web UI)
Admins can delete any request
Managers can delete requests for themselves/their team
Users can delete requests they have created themselves
AARI now supports the automatic assignment of tasks to managers or to the user who initiated the request.
AARI Web package enables the creation of an AARI request directly from a bot.
This means that AARI tasks can now be initiated by bots and sent to humans as opposed to humans queuing up work for bots.
Not-Quite-Top-5 Bonus Feature: Quick Map
Input and output values can now be easily and quickly mapped between parent/child bot with the addition of Quick Mapping
This enables for the automatic mapping of values, and also eliminates the requirement for all child values to be mapped back to a parent in a single dictionary.
