    Hi Ryan,

    Great question! To run a bot using IBM Robotic Process Automation (RPA), you would typically follow these steps:

    1. Authenticate to the IBM RPA API Server
      1. This is a mandatory step before you request a resource in the API
      2. Will provide you with an access token that authorizes you to proper resources available to your IBM RPA account
    2. Call the Bot API Endpoint 
      1. /v2.0/workspace/{workspaceId}/projects/{projectUniqueId/bots/{botUniqueId}

    POST https://{region}{workspaceId}/projects/{projectUniqueId}/bots/{botUniqueId} HTTP/1.1 Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate Content-Type: application/json Authorization: Bearer {token} Content-Length: 64 Host: {region} Connection: Keep-Alive User-Agent: Apache-HttpClient/4.5.5 (Java/16.0.1) { "additionalMessage": "Additional message here" }

    For more details, please refer to the IBM RPA documentation:
