    Hello Phani,

     

    you may have a look at the documentation "Bulk Robot Deployment with an XML File"

     

    https://docops.ca.com/ca-unified-infrastructure-management/8-47/en/installing-ca-uim/deploy-robots/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.

    Hi Britta,

     

    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?

    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 

     

    Thanks,

    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.
