Important considerations

1.Generally before using this operation you must get the authorization token using the Authenticate operation.

2.The authenticated user must be able to create instances of the desired process.

3.You can use the operation GetProcess to obtain the GUID of the process.

4.You can send a null variable as a start parameter or the string {"startParameters": []} if no start parameters are needed.

5.You can only modify attributes that appear in your Start Form through the start parameters JSON.

6.To build your start parameter JSON you can use the following methods:

oAddStartParameter

oAppendRowToCollectionParameter

oAddColumnToLastRowParameter

oAutomation Anywhere: AppendFileToParameter

7.You can save the ID of the case in a variable if you want to further work on the case using your Bot.
