MyTown users want to manage automation performance and assign tasks using the Pega Robot Manager™ application. The MyTown robotic development teams are now creating automations using the latest version of Pega Robot Studio and plan to deploy these automation packages for storage within a package repository created in Pega Robot Manager. To ensure these packages are available for the Water Department employees, update the Robot Manager configuration files to use the new package repository, and then make the file available to the appropriate department.

Complete the following tasks:

  • Create a new version of the main configuration file.
  • Edit the new configuration file to refer to the new package repository.
  • Apply the configuration file to the correct department.
Note: Complete the preceding challenges in order before attempting to complete this task.

The following table provides the credentials you need to complete the challenge:

Role User name Password
Robot Manager System Administrator  RMSysAdmin myt0wn@pp1

You must initiate your own Pega instance to complete this Challenge.

Initialization may take up to 5 minutes so please be patient.
