Today, we are about to dig into the A360 v30 new features nestled within the Automation Anywhere platform. These will be rolled out from mid-October 2023 onwards. The build version of this v30 release is 19621.
A360 v30 New Features
There will be much more to explore in Automation 360 than just what’s covered in this post. But for now, let’s focus on the cream of the crop: Gen AI packages, automation templates, OAuth 2.0 support, variable logging, personalized ACC (Automation Command Center) views, Approval tasks, and data extraction with Gen AI.
Gen AI Packages
“The most vital ingredient in AI success is data. The organizations that will thrive will be those that can access the data that feeds algorithms and spits out something valuable.” – Greg Satell, Harvard Business Review
First up are the Gen AI Packages. The new release empowers users to integrate Google, Microsoft, and Open AI packages directly into Automation 360. As a result, you can leverage the powerful ML models developed by these top-tier vendors without leaving the platform.
This efficient integration holds vast potential for enhancing your projects.
Creating bots is about to become a lot easier with the new “Templates” feature.
Instead of wasting repetitive efforts on crafting the same basic bot structures over and over again, users can now clone an already-configured bot or use an existing skeleton to kickstart a project.
OAuth 2.0 Authentication Support
Automation 360 provides an updated REST web service package that supports OAuth 2.0 authentication for a centralized OAuth token from the control room.
So, users will have more authentication flexibility when working with REST APIs.
Enhanced Logging of Variables
Building upon the existing log text-to-file feature, the new release introduces an option for logging variables in a log file. This means that actual variables from the Taskbot can be logged, giving you even more detailed insight into your workflows.
Personalized ACC Views
Automation 360’s new version offers a personalized view of the Automation Command Center (ACC).
It allows you to adapt the dashboard to your liking, giving you a clear and intuitive overview of the automation process. A dedicated post about ACC will follow soon.
Approval Tasks for Smooth Collaboration
A new type of task – Approval Task is introduced in this update.
This can be used in the process composer for seeking feedback or approval from human users, enhancing collaboration and flexibility in the workflow creation process.
Gen AI Powered Data Extraction and Document Automation
The Gen AI technology also extends its capabilities to document automation. Through simple search queries, the Gen AI model extracts relevant data from documents with minimum configuration effort on your part.
"searchQuery": "what is the full property address with state, city and zip code"
All in all, we have a bounty of innovative features that take the power, flexibility, and convenience of Automation 360 to greater heights. That’s it for today’s deep dive into the world of Automation 360.
