Summary

Before version 11.2.4 R2, bots execution could be triggered from any BPMN shape, for example, from Manual Tasks or gateways. However, from version 11.2.4 R2 bots can only be executed from Bots Task types.

If you upgrade a project from a previous version to 11.2.4 R2, you can still execute bots in other shapes, but you cannot change or edit the bot action. This article shows how to configure a new Bot Task type with the mapping of the previous bot defined in a non Bot Task type.

Applies to

Bizagi Studio V.11.2.4R2

What you need to do?

1.      Copy the mapping of the previous bot

1.1.  Go to Activity Actions in the 4th step of the process wizard.

1.2.  Open the activity action associated to the bot execution.

1.3.  Go to the advanced mapping in the input mapping.

1.4.  Export the input mapping

When doing so, an XML file is generated with the input configuration. Save this file.

1.5.  Go to the advanced mapping in the output mapping.

1.6.  Export the output mapping

When doing so, an XML file is generated with the input configuration. Save this file.

2.      Delete the action where the bot was being executed

3.      Create a new Bot Task in the first step of the process wizard

4.      Use the mappings exported in the step 1 to map the new bot

4.1.  Go to Activity Actions in the 4th step of the process wizard.

4.2.  Create a new RPA bot action on-exit of the task.

4.3.  Go to the advanced mapping in the input mapping.

4.4.  Import the input mapping that you exported in step 1.4

This will automatically update your input mapping with the previous one.

4.5.  Go to the advanced mapping in the output mapping.

4.6.  Import the output mapping that you exported in step 1.6

This will automatically update your output mapping with the previous one.

4.7.  Finish the bot configuration

Now, your bot action has been successfully configured in a Bot Task.
