    • When you export or import the process, the RPA activity configuration and the reference to the RPA server used in the activity are included in the XML.

    • When you import the process on another system, and a RPA server with the same name already exists, that server is used when executing the activity.

    • When you import the process on another system, and the server does not exist, the server name is displayed as "Unknown" and execution fails because the RPA server is not defined.
