Downloading and uploading runtime configuration files

Updating configuration files

A Pega Robot Manager™ administrator can update configuration files by uploading new versions; for example, the administrator prefers to edit the file contents of the file in a preferred third-party XML editor. A Pega Robot Runtime configuration file version can be downloaded to serve as a starting point for editing.

When you install Pega Robot Manager, it automatically creates a master version of the Runtime configuration file. The master configuration file is not editable. To adjust the settings, you must make your modifications and save the configuration as a new file. You can associate the new file after making the adjustments.
