Why can I maintain environments in Hyland RPA Launcher settings?
The environment inside the Hyland RPA Launcher settings is used to configure certain products for your specific environment. Per default, we will use your default environment. As of today, we only configure the RPA Conductor during the installation process. Additional products will follow with future updates.
Which environment is used when I install the RPA Conductor?
When you install the RPA Conductor, we will use your default environment to configure the Hyland RPA Conductor for you. So, with one click on Install the RPA Conductor & the latest Activities are installed on your system, under the same folder path logic. Your RPA Conductor is ready to go after the installation is completed incl. the encrypted connection string. The Workflowrobot is also configured with the encrypted connection and the activity folder path, based on your default installation path.
How can I set a default environment?
Navigate to Settings – Environments and right-click on the environment. Choose to Make default in the context menu. You can also edit the environment and change the default environment there.
Does the Hyland RPA Launcher activate my products?
Yes, with an active internet connection we will try to activate your product against our license services. If the activation failed, you need to activate the application during the first launch of the app.
When can I use a Rollout-Kit?
You can use a Rollout-Kit whenever you want to install products on clients without access to the internet or without access to the Hyland RPA Launcher. General use-cases for Rollout-Kits are the distribution of Hyland RPA updates. Rollout-Kits configure our products up to a certain point so that they’re ready to work after distribution.
