There is a number of global parameters for WorkFusion Studio to define settings of components, its general behavior that can be set in Preferences, for example, Playback settings, Image detection, Global timeouts.

To open the Preferences window, go to Window > Preferences.

Server Profiles

The Server Profiles tab contains settings required for correct work of all the Server components.

If you work with different environments (development, production) and need to publish your scripts to different Control Towers, you can do it by using several Server Profiles in WorkFusion Studio and switching between them when required. Control Towers are differentiated as follows:

  • Control Tower for Intelligent Automation Cloud Business
  • Control Tower for Intelligent Automation Cloud Enterprise

For more details, refer to Versions Compatibility Matrix.

To open Server Profiles, go to Window > Preferences > WorkFusion Studio > Server Profiles.
