Installing Pega RPA Service

Updated on October 19, 2022

Use the Pega RPA Service to schedule when robotic automations can run.

Use the Pega RPA Service to schedule Robotic Processing Automation (RPA) sessions. These sessions determine when RPA robots can run

With the Pega RPA Service, you can specify schedules for your RPA robots to better manage production systems whose applications are not available all day and every day.

This service is available for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2016. Support for Windows Server 2012 R2 requires build 8.0.1067 or later. Support for Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2016 requires build 8.0 SP1 2007 or later.

This service runs as a LocalSystem account, which means it runs standard least-privileged services and only accesses the network as an anonymous user.

After you have installed the Pega RPA Service, you must enable it. For more information, see Enabling the Pega RPA Service.
