Data visualization in IBM RPA Control Center

In IBM RPA Control Center, you have access to data generated by bots in operation.

Bot Runtime logs

The Bot Runtime stores its data logs in a local file. When the bot operation ends, the logs are sent to the IBM RPA server by using a secure HTTPS over TLS 1.2 connection. Users from your IBM RPA Control Center environment can see these logs.

Credentials stored in IBM RPA Control Center

Credentials in IBM RPA Control Center are a secure method of storing passwords safely. Bots can use credentials at run time to unlock the computer or to access systems that are related to the automation process, or both.

Users from an IBM RPA Control Center environment can't see credentials data. All credentials that are stored in the IBM RPA server are encrypted, and bots can get only credential data by using IBM RPA Vault. For more information, see IBM RPA Vault security aspects.

There is no way to decrypt the credential data on the IBM RPA server since the server doesn't store the key to decrypt the data. If you lose the private key to decrypt the data, you need to create new public and private keys and reconfigure all credentials in the IBM RPA Control Center.


Monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) is important to evaluate the success of a solution in an organization. IBM RPA Control Center is embedded with a dashboard designer where you can create from simple to complex dashboard views for auditing. You can see data from bots during processing in real time.

Users from your IBM RPA Control Center environment can create dashboards. Only the dashboard author can edit their dashboards.

Orchestration data

You can view data of bots in an orchestration process in the control panel of the IBM RPA Control Center. You can audit the orchestration, manage orchestration instances, collect insights about the orchestration efficiency, and see Bot Runtime logs.
