Digital Business Automation Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on premises, containers, on cloud):

  • Cloud Pak for Automation - incl Business Automation Studio, Business Automation Insights

  • Business Automation Workflow (BAW) - incl BAW, Business Process Manager, Workstream Services, Business Performance Center, Advanced Case Management

We need the support "Integrating with IBM BAW by implementing a robot task" on Japanese environment.

Integration with IBM Business Automation Workflow(BAW) and Automation Anywhere Enterprise(AAE) is important function. That discriminates IBM RPA with AA and other RPA tools include original AAE.

"Implementing a robot task for a basic setup" function is convenient for using BAW Robot task call RPA.But "My Tasks\IBM\TaskBot Import (Tech Preview).atmx" command doesn't work on Windwos Japanese Env.
We are proposing RPA w/AA to SHISEIDO and told the customer that BAW and RPA coworks well. That's advantage to other RPA tools. 
PA support told us this function doesn't support Windows Japanese env.

CASE No. TS001669576
IBM Business Automation Workflow Enterprise V11 V18.0
IBM RPA Server V11.2.0.0
IBM RPA Client V11.2.0.0

Windows Server 2012R2 Standard Japanese Env.

According to the above manual procedure, I attempt to import XML file generated by BAW, but it failed.

I got below error on line 43 of bot "My Tasks - IBM - TaskBot Import(Tech Preview) - TaskBot Import(Tech Preview).atmx".
Unable to find 'Yes' PushButton. 'Search Criteria' did not match.(TYPE_1000)
An error occurred at line number 43 of Task 'TaskBot Import(Tech Preview)'.
Open the Task in Workbench to view action at line number 43.

Line 43 of the bot is below.
Run Logic "Add Variable" from MetaBot "My Metabots\IBM PRA Bot Generation.mbot"

In Logic "Add Variable" of the mbot,

There is a place where "Yes" button is Left Clicked, and the actual screen is "Yes(in Japanese)" button.

*This phenomenon does not cause problems in the English environment.
