Compatibility with TN3270 mainframe emulator and IBM RPA

  • 1.  Compatibility with TN3270 mainframe emulator and IBM RPA

    Posted Tue August 31, 2021 09:53 AM
    We are in process to prepare a demo using WDG for one of our customer . There are requirements to connect WDG with mainframe emulator TN3270 and fetch data then on certain business logic execute user action with multiple browser based application .
     
    We need expert comment from  you on : -
    1. 1. TN3270 is compatible to connect to WDG ? is there any prerequisite or system compatibility things that we need to look into ?
    2. 2. Do you have any documentation around it so that we can get idea and traverse our approach ?
    Thanks

    Hi Mauricio,

    I created a bot to a TN3270 emulator here:

    In this example, I used emulator macros to perform the terminal commands. But you can also use the native IBM RPA commands:
