Interview Questions & Answer



1) What is RPA?

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a process used to automate business operations using robots. It is used in order to reduce human interference. So, in other words RPA is a type of software that is used to do automation of the fundamental tasks in software applications like how a human performs them.

 The software robot can be trained for a workflow/process with different steps and application.

The main goal of RPA is to eliminate the tedious and repetitive clerical task performed by a human.

RPA programming is intended to diminish the weight of monotonous, straightforward tasks/work on workers.

for example, taking received forms, sending a receipt message, checking the forms for completeness, documenting the form in a folder, and updating a spreadsheet with the form name, the date recorded, etc.

2) list down some different types of tools in RPA?

  • UiPath
  • Automation Anywhere
  • WorkFusion
  • OpenSpan

3) Describe the life cycle of RPA.

The four different phases in the RPA cycle are:

  • Analysis: Identifying the business process for which RPA development is needed
  • Development of the Bot: Fulfilling the requirements
  • Testing: Performing quality checks
  • Deployment and Maintenance: Deploying and maintaining the bot by the team

4) What are the advantages of Robotic Process Automation.

18) What is the role of Control Room in Automation Anywhere?

 It is the central part of the ‘’Automation Anywhere architecture’’ which acts as a web-based platform to control automation anywhere. It offers centralized features that include source control, automation deployment, provides dashboard, and user management. 

19) Can we use Automation Anywhere for testing the Agile Method?

Yes, we can use Automation Anywhere for agile testing method same as that of continuous integration. But In most of the situations, there is no need for a sophisticated level of documentation. So, in such cases, testing of the agile method is not useful.

20) What is Sikuli?

It is a tool designed to automate GUI (Graphical User Interface) using ‘Visual Image Match (VIM)’ Method. Sikuli is also known as graphical UI. In sikuli, all the web elements are stored in the project. This tool considers aspects like images and triggers Graphical User Interface interactions based on VIM. Sikuli is mainly used to automate flash objects as well as Windows-based applications.

21) What are the factors which are significant to consider for scripting standards in Automation Anywhere?

The factors which we need to consider for scripting standards are as follows:

  • Maximum use of framework where it is required.
  • Uniform naming convention
  • Error handling and management
  • Proper indentation 

22) How to handle errors in Automation Anywhere approach?

Errors in Automation Anywhere approach are handled based on the exact cause of the problem and nature. In this approach, automation softwares are already equipped with the error-handling mechanisms to handle the errors.

23) What are the characteristics of an ethical framework in Automation Anywhere?

The characteristics of a good framework are as follows:

  • The script must be self-reliant.
  • The framework should follow coding related practices.
  • Reusability
  • The framework should be able to integrate with different kinds of applications and framework as well.
  • Inbuilt reporting features.

24)  why you should use automation anywhere?

 It provides a platform for developing bots which could automate the business processes and repetitive as well as individual tasks. Automation anywhere helps in developing bots that can automate at an enterprise scale. It also provides cognitive automation for unstructured data, which helps in developing intelligent bots. If the deployment needs to be done instantly, developers can buy ready to deploy bot, instead of spending time on the development of bots. Bot store helps to jump-start bot deployment. Automation Anywhere is the best option for those developers who are good in programming since Automation Anywhere makes uses of scripting for development of Bots.

25) What are RPA Bots and how to create them?

Automation Anywhere or UiPath are bot creator tools. They are used to create bots that are used to automate processes or tasks. The following steps are involved in the creating a bot:

  • Record a task
  • Complete the bot implementation
  • Test the bot
  • Upload the bot to perform the automation tasks



Automation Anywhere follows a Distributed Architecture. Through this architecture, Centralized Management is accomplished via Automation Anywhere’ Control Room.

The architecture of this tool is mainly segregated into Bot Creators and Bot Runners. Both of these components are connected to the Control Room.

Bot Creators

As the name suggests Bot Creators are used to create bots. These are Desktop based applications which authenticate against an active Control Room and only have access to upload or download bots. On configuring these bots, for the control room, multiple developers can create individual tasks/bots and can execute all of them at once.

Control Room 

Control Room is the most important component of the architecture.  It is a web server that basically controls the bots created by the Bot Creators. As Automation Anywhere focuses on Centralized Management, the Control Room offers features such as centralized user management, automation deployment, source control and provides a Dashboard.

Also, there are 2 types of Licenses available in Automation Anywhere.

  • Dev License: If you have this license, then you can create, edit and run a bot.
  • Run License: If you have this license, then you will not have any edit access but you can only run a bot.

Bot Runners

Bot Runners are used to execute the bots. Multiple bots can be executed in parallel and cannot update or create automation. They are run time clients which are installed on windows machines and can report back the execution log status to the control room.

So, if you summarize all the three components together, then once a Developer creates a task/bot and updates on the Control Room. The Control Room can hereby schedule and execute these bots on the Bot Runners, based on the Requirements or priority.

Products of Automation Anywhere

Apart from the above three products, Automation Anywhere also offers three other products which are as below.

  • IQ Bots
  • Bot Insight
  • BotFarm

IQ Bots

IQ Bots or Cognitive Bots think like a human and have features such as self-learning ability, algorithm-based decision making, and subject matter expertise. These bots extract data from semi-structured and unstructured data and use a semantic model to do so.

Bot Insight

Bot Insight is a tool used to analyze the performance of each and every bot. With this product of Automation Anywhere, you can see the statistics and the graphs of your business.

Bot Farm allows you to create multiple bots based on the on-demand Digital Workforce. This also provides Robotic Process Automation as a service through the Automation Anywhere Enterprise.

So, it is all about the Automation Anywhere architecture and the products it offers.
