Hi @Tharushi Galappaththi ,

 

The Reply URL and Sign in URL are typically used in the context of OAuth or OpenID Connect workflows, where an application (like SharePoint) redirects the user to a sign-in page (like Automation Anywhere), and then gets redirected back to the application with some token or code.

 

In Automation Anywhere, you can authenticate with a username and API key to generate a JSON Web Token (JWT) to use to authenticate in Control Room APIs1. This involves making a POST request with a username and API key1. The URL for this would be something like http://<your_control_room_url>/v1/authentication1.

 

Please note that the Reply URL and Sign in URL in this context would be URLs in your application (SharePoint) where users are sent after they authenticate. These URLs must be registered in Azure AD as part of your application registration.

 

If you’re looking to integrate Automation Anywhere with SharePoint, you would likely need to use the Automation Anywhere APIs1 and the SharePoint APIs and handle the OAuth/OpenID Connect flow between the two. This might involve creating a custom application or script to facilitate this interaction.
