How to run automation?

I’m new to RPA express.
I would like to ask if somebody can address me to the proper post or document where I can learn, if possible:

  • how to create an exe file of an automation configured with RPA express
  • if I can run my automaion from command line or bacth file, or similar

The point is how to launch automation withOUT deploy and schedule it into Control Tower.

@mporcile_Accenture3 - thanks for your request!

Right now, robotic automation script should be run either from RPA Recorder or from Control Tower.

I want to run the workfusion bot from the command line, is that possible?

Hi @hkodapaka no, there’s currently no such option. See the post above for ways to run your scripts.

@ashapkina Does control tower has API service? If so, we can trigger bot from control tower using API call. Is that possible?

There is WorkFusion REST API you can use to start BPs.

You can find details about it here

Note that you need to use the UUID of a BP instance, not definition, to start it. Read how to find it here

Can we expect a feature to execute flows/bots via command line in the near future, and if so, roundabout when?
