Hi @Nibha, Machines enables you to provision and manage machines, with the purpose of further using them to register Robots to Orchestrator. There are two types of machines, each having a specific business scenario:
- Standard Machine - It should be used when the name of the machine on which you want to define Robots remains the same each time you connect to it - the standard scenario. You define the machine once, and then can connect to any number of Robots in the Robots page. A Robot in this scenario connects to Orchestrator using the machine name - machine key - username combination.
- Machine Template - It should be used when the name of the machine on which you want to define Robots changes every time, as in the case of non-persistent Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI). You define this entity once and then connect to any number of Attended Floating Robots using a unique Active Directory username. A Robot in this scenario connects to Orchestrator only using the machine key and username combination.
In order to be able to perform various operations on the Machines page, you need to be granted the corresponding permissions on Machines:
- View - Viewing a machine
- Edit - Editing a machine
- Create - Creating a machine
- Delete - Deleting a machine
