Licensing for Desktop Flow connector

I want to call my desktop flow on scheduled basis (just once in a week) so I used "Desktop Flow" connector, by taking help from


Question 1:

Can I use premium connector "Desktop Flow" with "Per-user plan" or "Per-flow plan" ?? Or do I need to purchase this one "Per-user plan with attended RPA" ??


Question 2:

I definitely want to call the flow in unattended mode, is this possible if I purchase "Per-user plan with attended RPA" plan Or I have go for add on purchase for "Unattended RPA add-on" which is $150 per bot/month. Does this mean every month I have to spend $150 ??

Does one bot/month represents one Desktop Flow/Month i.e. I should consider 1 bot as 1 desktop flow ??


In advance thanks for your suggestions and replies.

You need at least the "Per-user plan with attended RPA".

If you want to run it unattended, then you will need to add the "Unattended RPA add-on" as well.

With 1 license you can always run multiple desktop flows sequentially.

So if $150/month is too much, then run the flow in attended mode while you are present or just add more flows (automations) to be run unattended to balance the cost of $150/month.

I have the same kind of requirement, where we need single bot to schedule (attended) the desktop recorder. so what kind of license to be purchased?
