Version: 2020.02

Languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Simplified Chinese



 The following  new key features are available with this version:

PA Administration
  • ROI Dashboard improvements: The ROI dashboard now enables administrators to define the cost of a manual process. RPA will then use collected run times from the automated process to display current and historical ROI information across all workflows or filtered by specific time frames or workflows.
RPA Execution
  • Stateful execution: Steps within a workflow can now be serialized to ensure that one step will run prior to a second step. For example, a robot could log into SAP to gather information, log into SalesForce to gather additional information, run a computation based on the information, then write a new entry back into SalesForce.
RPA Designer Experience
  • Variable support: Users can now pass both activity variables (inputs and output) and configuration Items (system properties) within the logic of the RPA activity for RPA steps, step properties and run settings.
  • Create & Run Python 3 operations: Users can now write new tasks using Python 3 syntax. The engine will execute these tasks using Python engine instead of Jython, this will enable one to use 3rd party Python packages to accomplish his automation use case in an easier manner.
RPA Security
  • PAM Integration: RPA now documents the ability to use Privileged Access Manager (PAM) for RPA run-time security by both retrieving passwords from PAM’s password vault rather than storing them locally and executing flows using the PAM token functionality.
  • Localization in French, German, Japanese, Simplified Chinese
