All challenges provide real-time feedback on your completion accuracy and timing. The more challenges you complete, the more you learn. And there's help when you need it! Feel free to check out the tutorials (available for most challenges) if you get stuck, or want to see how we might suggest solving these exercises

 

Where do I challenge myself?

You can complete all challenges in Automation Anywhere’s Community Edition (unless otherwise noted) or Automation 360 Enterprise.

 

How do I up my automation game even more?

As you complete each challenge, consider the following:

  • How could you complete this same exercise using a different approach?
  • Can you speed this bot's processing time? And what impact does that have on the consistency of its performance?
  • Could you use Bot Store bots and packages to enhance the solution to this challenge?

Challenges

 

Basic Login

 

A great place to start for anyone new to Automation Anywhere development. Many web applications used by bots require some sort of login - in this challenge page, developers are asked to do exactly that - just process a login.

Correctly fill in the username, password, and click submit for the scoring modal to appear.

Online Grocery Ordering

 

Learning to interact with both web objects and data sources is key to being a successful automation developer. In this challenge, you'll need to download the provided shopping list and add each item from the list to the shopping order before acknowledging the terms and submitting the order. Once the order has been submitted, the scoring modal will display your results.

Message Decoder

 

Automations will commonly make use of more than one application. In this challenge, a "hidden" message is provided in Bulgarian (hidden unless you are fluent in Bulgarian I guess). Extract the Bulgarian text from the Text to Decode field, and translate the text to English before entering it into the translated text field and submitting it.

 

Note: There are multiple ways to solve this - just like there are multiple services/applications that provide language translation. While each translation may return a very slight difference in wording, the scoring model is set up to be flexible to the differences in those results. Consider how you might translate this text as a human - use Bing/Google translate? Create a bot that can do the same. Navigate to an online translator, fill the text, translate, and bring the translated text back to this app.

Customer Onboarding - Front Office

 

Almost all production bots will require some use of selection statements (if/else) and repetition (looping). In this challenge, new corporate customers need to be added to The Cable Co's customer relationship management system. Download the new customers CSV and correctly enter the customer onboarding details for each new customer. Once all new customers have been added, the scoring modal will display your results.

The Auction Sniper

 

Repetition and Conditional statements are two key skills in being able to build bots that respond appropriately to the applications you're automating - in order to achieve the automation goal at hand. In this simulated auction challenge, place your max bid as close to 0 seconds left in the auction as possible to score the best deal! If your max bid is placed with too much time on the clock or isn't a high enough bid, you may find that you get outbid, or end up paying more than a bid that is placed right before the auction ends. Can you beat the clock?

Purchase Order Updates - Supply Chain

 

Commonly automation use cases will require developers to interface with multiple web applications as well as a data source for lookups. In this challenge, a randomized series of purchase orders are displayed in need of some additional details. Use the Procurement Anywhere web app to look up the ship date, order total, and state for each PO. Using the state details, look up the assigned agent in the provided agent territory spreadsheet to correctly assign each PO to the appropriate agent.

Employee Data Migration - Human Resources

 

Within the Human Resources department, many organizations are finding a large number of use cases that are perfect for automation - dealing with employee changes, onboarding/offboarding,  recruitment, etc. In this challenge, employee data needs to be migrated from a legacy HR app as well as an internal HR onboarding API into the Busy Bee Resource Management application. On page load, a random employee ID is provided - look up said employee ID in the thick client legacy app to extract employee details. Additionally, make a call to the HR onboarding API with the same employee ID to gather the remaining employee data before entering all employee data into the form. Repeat this process for all 10 provided employee ID's to display the scoring modal with your challenge results.

For each listed transaction, validate that the transaction appears/cleared in the company's bank.

Healthcare AI

 
 

 

Medikorps, a healthcare company, has reached out to you seeking assistance to automate its process of report generation. Medikorps provides treatment for various patient conditions and desires to standardize its report-generation process.

After a patient's visit, the doctor evaluates their condition and provides notes regarding their health, including prescribed medications if necessary. Subsequently, the doctor sends an email to the medical assistant, responsible for generating the medical report to be shared with the patient.

However, due to the high influx of patients received daily, report generation has become a bottleneck in their workflow and aims to implement an automation solution to streamline this process with your assistance.

You must use Generative AI provider of your choice to extract key data needed for the report from the emails.

Cyber Loss Prevention - Cyber Security

 

Collecting, validating, and aggregating data is a great automation use case...and one that would otherwise mean a lot of manual work. In this challenge, the Cyber Loss Prevention team at Eagle One Financial has reached out to you for help: They need your Automation Anywhere skills to help the company combat credit card fraud when major credit card leaks are dumped on the dark web. Help the team by scraping all the leaked credit card numbers available for sale at “Ryan’s Club”, run them against a database of Eagle One Financial customers to identify if any of Eagle One’s customers have been impacted, and capture the details for each impacted customer in a CSV so that Eagle One Financial can proactively deactivate and re-issue cards for impacted customers.

Financial Transaction Validation

 
  

 

Validating financial transactions is a great “audit” measure for organizations looking to make sure their books are in order. In this challenge, you’ll need to help Foodmart Grocery Corp validate data from some of their recent financial transactions. Sound easy enough right? Unfortunately, in an effort to get the best possible rate on their savings, Foodmart has selected one of the least reliable and lowest rated fictional banks - Rusty Bank. Build an automation that can validate all financial transactions in spite of the Rusty Bank website crashing. All aboard for the 503 train!!!

Automation Resiliency

 
 

 

Our aim in this challenge is to showcase how a Generative AI model can enhance automation resilience. When target applications are updated, the object paths for elements may change, requiring updates to the corresponding automations. By utilizing a Generative AI provider like ChatGPT (or any other provider of your choosing), we can input the source code of a web page and request object paths for all the necessary elements. These paths can then be used to automate interactions with the web page. 

In this use case, a financial services company called Spacely wants to add details of its corporate customers to a new Saas-based customer relationship management system (CRM). Because it's an application they subscribe to and don't own, updates to the application can come without warning - make automating data entry challenging. Let’s see how you can help Spacely automate this process.
