Displaying Robot Versions for a Machine

To view the versions of each and every Robot connected to a specific machine, click the More Actions button and then View Installed Versions.

You can also see a cumulative output of the created Robots' versions on the Installed Version column on the Machines page according to various scenarios:

  1. No Robots

    • no Robots were ever provisioned on the machine.
  2. Unknown

    • 1 or more Robots were created, but none of them is connected;
    • 1 or more Robots were created after the Robot-Orchestrator connection had been established.
  3. [installed version]

    • 1 Robot with a version later than 18.2.0 was registered and it is connected;
    • more Robots having a version later than 18.2.0 (the same one) were provisioned and they are all connected.
      For example, if you have provisioned one 18.2.4 Robot, which is connected, then 18.2.4 is displayed. If you provisioned a number of 18.3.0 Robots, say 11, and they are all connected, then 18.3.0 is displayed.
  4. < 18.2.0

    • 1 Robot with a version prior to 18.2.0 was provisioned and it is connected;
    • more Robots having a version prior to 18.2.0 were provisioned and they are all connected.
      For example, if you have provisioned one 18.1 Robot, which is connected, then <18.2.0 is displayed. Similarly, if you provisioned a number of 17.1.0 and 18.2.0 Robots, say 9 and 5, and they are all connected, then <18.2.0 is displayed.
  5. [number of distinct known versions]

    • 2 or more Robots having different versions were registered and they are all connected.
      For example, you have provisioned a total of 14 Robots (10 with 18.3.0, 2 with 18.2.4, 2 with a version prior to 18.2.0). In this case, 3 versions is displayed.
  6. [number of distinct known versions+]

    • 2 or more Robots having different versions were registered, some are connected, some are not.
      For example, you have provisioned a total of 16 Robots (10 with 18.3.0, 4 with 18.2.4, 2 not connected). In this case, 2+ versions is displayed.
      If you provisioned 7 Robots, 3 are with a version prior to 18.2.0, and 4 are not connected, then 1+ versions is displayed.

If you hover over the values in this column, more details are displayed in the tooltip.

The table below illustrates how the Installed Version column is populated, and the tooltip of each value for different scenarios.
