Question

Changing from IE to Chrome


Badge +7

Since IE is going to be shut down/ not going to be supported anymore we are thinking to change browser into chrome. do i need to do a recapture for every single bot that uses IE or is there a migration tool where i could tweak something to i don't need to recapture all of it?

Hi @David Jansen​ ,

 

If you want to use the bot developed in IE in Chrome, then you need to re-capture. Alternatively you can use the Edge in IE mode and you can convert the bot to use it in Edge IE mode.

 

As you have not specified the product version that you are using, assuming that you are using A360, you can refer to the following documentation on the product version supported for migration and the steps to convert the bots - https://docs.automationanywhere.com/bundle/enterprise-v2019/page/enterprise-cloud/topics/release-notes/release-automation-360-ie-eol.html/p>

 

If you are still facing an issue then kindly create a support case.
