Configuring an operator ID for registering robots

Suggest edit Updated on October 7, 2021

Grant operator IDs access privileges that enable to register unattended robots in Pega Robot Manager.

Depending on your security policy and business requirements, you can use an operator ID that already belongs to an individual or create an operator specifically for registering unattended robots.

You can reuse a single registration operator ID across multiple robot virtual machines. You can also grant robot registration privileges to multiple operator IDs to have more control over which work groups robots can register with Robot Manager.

  1. Configure an operator account:
    ChoicesActions
    Select an account
    1. In Dev Studio, click ConfigureOrg & SecurityOrganizationOperators.
    2. On the Operators tab, select an account that you want to enable to register robots.
