Execution via runtime with total admin privileges (runtime)

Essa ideia surgiu a cerca de 1 ano, mediante a necessidade de que nos deparamos com nossos clientes em que um programa, usando por um robô, é executado em seu processo somente com os privilégios total ativado(Modo Administrador). Em testes com a execução via Studio não é um problema, pois ao executar o IBM Studio como Modo Administrador ativado consegue interagir 100% com esse programa.

Seguindo esse cenário em testes anteriores via runtime, o RPA não conseguia interagir com o programa clicando ou enviando teclas. Assim, tentamos contornar o problema colocando o AgentHost no servidor local para inicializar sempre como Modo Administrador e o usuário com privilégios total da maquina, porém sem sucesso.

No fim, com o apoio do time do suporte IBM, recebemos a informação que tal funcionalidade não existia atualmente nos serviços do WDG. Por isso, conforme nessa necessidade, acreditamos ser uma funcionalidade importante para ampliarem a funcionalidade da ferramenta.

This idea came about 1 year ago, due to the need that we came across with our customers in which a program, used by a robot, is executed in its process only with full privileges activated (Administrator Mode). In tests, running via Studio is not a problem, because when running IBM Studio with Administrator Mode enabled, it is able to interact 100% with this program.

Following this scenario in previous tests via runtime, RPA was unable to interact with the program by clicking or sending keys. So, we tried to get around the problem by putting AgentHost on the local server to always start as Administrator Mode and the user with full machine privileges, but without success.

In the end, with the support of the IBM support team, we received the information that such functionality did not currently exist in the WDG services. Therefore, according to this need, we believe it is an important feature to expand the functionality of the tool.
