Explain the steps for Migrating MetaBots Code into Automation 360.

In Order to migrate Automation Anywhere MetaBot Code into Automation 360. You need to follow the below steps:

(a) You must have Automation Anywhere atmx file and MetaBot mbot files.

(b) Remove extra or unused lines of code, Assets or Logics which is not required before migration.

(c) Test your code in Version 11 and fix bugs if any present before migrating to Automation 360.

(d) Use BOT Scanner tool to see the % of code changes required once migration is completed.

Go to Automation 360 and look for Package “Bot Migration”. Select “Migrate Legacy Bot” from the list. Select your task BOT or MetaBot which you are migrating. You will get 3 options to choose your atmx and mbot files.

1. Control Room File :

Migration time out in mins: Here in this box, you can timeout in minutes which will stop the migration after given timelines.

Migration process will take some time based on number of lines or assets or logics available in taskbot or metabot.
