I am looking for options to bulk update Origin on Robots .
How are everyone doing it ...any ideas please?
you may have a look at the documentation "Bulk Robot Deployment with an XML File"
Advanced users who want to perform extra customization can specify any supported robot parameter.
Please let me know if this helps to answer your question.

I dont have control of the Robot Deployment as its handled by the server team , the robots would already be installed by the time it gets to us.
Are there any better ways of updating Origin in bulk after the robot is installed?
I have created a package with spooler and pushed ,that worked me perfect.
Do you mean to say a configuration only package to overwrite specific fields on the robot? This sounds like a good option
I am working on something similar , to use a a configuration package to update the Origin and User tags ...I think this should solve our purpose
Yes pls create a configuration package ,it works good
Hello Phani, another option would be to use a script that uses a sql query to generate a list of robots and then use the probe utility to send the remote_config_set callback to set the origin in the robot configuration.
You may have a look at the niscache file cleanup BAT - niscache cleanup & robot ID reset in the community here which is a good example.
