With Blueprint you can easily migrate from one RPA tool to another. In this example we will be importing Automation Anywhere tasks to BlueprintRPA .
To Import an RPA file into Blueprint:
- In the Project Explorer select where you'd like the imported process(es) to be put. This can be a folder, or the project.
- Click the More button in the main toolbar and select what RPA tool you would like to import from. In this example we are using the Import from AA Enterprise
- In the Import from <RPA Tool> modal displayed, default values are preset, but can be changed if needed:
- In the Process Type field, select a Process Type.

Above the "Choose File" field in parentheses is the type of acceptable file. If any file type other than what is listed is selected, an error message is displayed.
