Creating a project with the Create New option

Updated on October 19, 2022

Your first step in creating a solution in Pega Robot Studio is to create a project. Projects are the containers for the elements of your solutions.

You can create a project by using the Create new option to specify a name and location for your project. Robot Studio then creates a Globals section and an empty automation.

Create new gives more control and flexibility to experienced users when creating a project.
