Automation Anywhere Architecture

Automation Anywhere Architecture has 3 primary components

  1. Control Room
  2. Bot Creator
  3. Bot Runner

Control room- is a web-based platform that controls the Automation Anywhere. In other words, it's the Server that controls Automation Anywhere bots.

Apart from that the control room deal with
  • User management
  • Source control: code for the bots is managed by the control room. So it becomes easy to share the code across different systems.
  • Dashboard- It gives complete analytics/results of Automation Anywhere bots. You can see how many bots are runs and how to bot failed/passed etc. is controlled.
  • License Management: The purchased licenses for Automation Anywhere are configured in the Control Room.
There are 2 types of Licenses in Automation Anywhere
  1. Dev License: If you got this license, you can create a bot, edit bot and run a bot.
  2. Run License: If you have this kind of license you can run the bot and, you will not make any changes.
Bot Creator- Developer use Desktop based applications to create bots. Their dev licenses are checked with that configured in the control room. On authentication, the code of the bots they create is stored in the control room. Different developers may create individual tasks/bots. These bots could be merged and executed at once.

Bot Runner - The Bot Runner is the machine where you run the bot. You could have multiple bots running in parallel. You only need the Run License to run the bots. The bots report back the execution logs/pass/fail status back to the control room.
