Configuring an operator ID for registering robots

Updated on December 20, 2022

Certain access privileges enable the registering of unattended robots in Pega Robot Manager.You must grant these access privileges to appropriate operator IDs.

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

You can use a single registration operator ID across multiple robot virtual machines. In addition, to have more granular control over which work groups the robots can be associated to in Robot Manager, you can grant robot registration privileges to multiple operator IDs.

  1. Configure an Operator ID:
    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.
    Create an account
    1. In Dev Studio, click CreateOrganizationOperator ID.
    2. Enter a short description and identifier, click Create, and then click Open.
    3. On the Profile tab, enter the dispatch operator details.
    4. On the Work tab, specify the organizational unit to which the operator belongs.
    5. On the Security tab, define the user password and other security information, as needed.
    For more information, see Learning about operators.
  2. In the Application access section of the Profile tab, add an access group that includes the PegaRobotManager:RobotRegistrator and PegaRULES:PegaAPI access roles, as shown in the following figure:

    You can create a dedicated robot registration account
    Tip: To allow the Operator ID to register the robots, but without giving the account any access to the Robot Manager portal, you can associate the operator with an access group that is the equivalent to the sample PegaRobotManager:RPAServices access role.
    For more information, see Managing access privileges.
  3. Click Save.
What to do next: Configure the Robot Manager decision tables with the details of the registration operator.
