I would like to find a way to allow live monitoring to the unattended bot machine during the bot execution for troubleshooting purpose , is there  way to launch a view only session without giving RDP access to bot machine?

Hi @Mohamed.A18 ,

 

Make a cmd file with the following content

@qwinsta /server:SERVERNAME

@Anonymous:
@Set /P _SessionID=Enter sessionID :
@mstsc /shadow:%_SessionID% /v:SERVERNAME /noconsentprompt

On the server that runs the unattended "bot" you have to set the following in Group policy
 

 


 

This will enable you to get a live view of your "Unattended" process.

in unattended robot machine , i should apply the group policy setting

Yes. It was done for one of my customers based on their requirement. This setup was done by their IT team and later they shared the details with me.

Hi @Mohamed.A18 

Im not sure if Windows server or A360 have by default this funcionality. Chek the below references:

Thank you everyone. Now I can solve this problem. But the next problem is that I want to pull Doc Text and fill it into Excel according to the row that Loop comes from. I don't know which command to use. I would like to disturb you too.
