Hello,

 

We are repeatedly getting error pop up when we try to run the task on A360. The error pop up says UNKOWN: User:(user id) is already running a bot on device: (device name).

 

error We also see, the task is listed in pending execution state under CR->In Progress screen even though the task is successfully completed.

 

The only workaround we are aware is to restart bot agent service and we are doing almost every-time before running a task.

 

We see similar issues reported by other users here but none has found a solution yet.
