Frequently Asked Questions

What is RPA?

RPA is an acronym for Robotic Process Automation. It is an emerging business process automation technology based on software robots and artificial intelligence.

Robomotion is a low-code and web-based RPA platform.

Is it secure to use my credentials?

To accomplish some tasks in flows, robots need to use credentials like username and login info to log in to some website, or token credentials to reach some third-party APIs. In these scenarios, you use the secure vault mechanisms provided in your workspace.

Whether they are on our hosted system or your on-prem/private cloud system, your credentials are kept in a secure vault protected by your password that only you know and your vault secret key that only you have. Much like the online password manager services your credentials are encrypted before leaving your computer using 256-bit AES encryption.

Should my robot always be connected?

Yes, your robot has to be connected when running a flow. Robots can be installed on your computer or can be installed on a VPS. This is how running a robot on your on-prem machine works. Your robot needs to be connected when a schedule comes to run a flow.

We also support a "Cloud Run" feature which makes it possible to connect a robot on demand at Robomotion's robot cluster. "Cloud Run" is a paid service that is charged by minutes.

Are custom nodes supported?

Robomotion comes with common building blocks you can find in most RPA tools. In the Flow Designer, a Function node can be used within your flows to add logic in Javascript if needed.

Robomotion also has a package system that enables the development of custom nodes in Golang, Python, Java and C#.
