I have copied (cloned) a taskbot. If i edit the new (copied) one, then it still behaves like to original taskbot, even if i delete a step (action) and run it, it is still deploying that (deleted) action, like it is running the original bot.

Create a read-only copy of the bot from the public workspace to the private workspace so that you can have a local copy without checking out the bot.>>

Thank you Tamil for your answer! if i make a local copy, can i edit that local copy itself, so it works as a robot on his own ? and actually run these changes (edits)

Hi @peter koning​ ,


For making edits you need to checkout the bot from Public workspace and make the necessary changes to it.

Clone is read mode (copy) so you can't do the changes. You have to check out the bot/Task and edit the code.



If I check out a bot, can I edit it and thus create a new bot based off the check out bot? (Check the new bot in and rename it to something new whilst keeping the original bot?)
