The following list is the documentation of IBM Robotic Process Automation's components, technologies, and automation concepts for you to employ on your IBM RPA bots.
IBM RPA Studio
IBM RPA Studio is the low code authoring tool for developing scripts.
A script is a collection of commands defining the actions of a bot. This topic compiles everything related to the basics of IBM RPA scripts'
This topic teaches you the different ways that you can deploy your bots in production.
See how to use the IBM RPA API to manage and interact with IBM RPA resources and scripts.
IBM RPA Launcher
IBM RPA Launcher is a tool used to launch scripts manually. In this application, the scripts are bound to buttons that the user can click to
start the scripts on demand.
Digital assistants are bots that interact with the user using text or voice messages. Not only can digital assistants
use the user's replies for processing, but they can also send relevant messages to the user and automate processes like a regular IBM RPA bot. Digital assistants are available in the IBM RPA SaaS and IBM RPA on premises offerings.
Learn techniques to handle bot errors during runtime.
IBM RPA role-based access control (RBAC)
Role-based access control (RBAC) is a mechanism to grant users access to specific resources, based on the roles that
these users play inside an environment.
IBM RPA Studio's recorder
The recorder is a tool in IBM RPA Studio to map graphical user interface controls and automatically create commands in your script.
Use IBM Robotic Process Automation's machine learning models to improve your bots' decision-making.
IBM RPA Vault
IBM RPA Vault stores encrypted credentials. You can safely manage credentials and use them in your scripts.
Use OCR tools in IBM RPA scripts to handle applications, PDFs, and images.
PDF document processing
Use PDF document processing features to automate invoice processing, process legal documents for keyword
scanning, or scan account-based documents and scrape data into a third-party application for reporting, for example.
IBM RPA Control Center
IBM RPA Control Center is the control room to manage your server environment. You can manage resources like scripts and computers,
set scripts to run, track data in dashboards, among other features. In the on-premises offering, you can also manage the server resources.
IBM RPA Always On
IBM RPA Always On is a component that safely disconnects you from an RDP connection to a computer, keeping resources enabled for bot operations.
You can create bots to automate SAP GUI simulating human input.
Surface automation is automation based on recognition of images and texts visible on a computer's screen.
Terminal emulator automation
Automate applications written to run in terminals or mainframes. IBM RPA can connect and automate zSeries
applications over 3270 protocol, and VT emulator over Telnet or SSH protocols.
You can create bots to automate processes that use a browser.
Automation of Windows™ applications. Use the recorder to record application's controls and manipulate them.
Combine BPMN files with IBM RPA scripts.
Combine message queues with IBM RPA's orchestrator technology to orchestrate scripts on your computers.
Connections with external apps
You can connect IBM Robotic Process Automation to various systems and services, and use their features for
