How to Set Up Robotics 19.1 RPA to Use CyberArk

I'm currently working with our resident security guy to integrate Robotics 19.1/Robot Manager 8.3 with CyberArk, as that is the preferred method for managing our credentials (over DPAPI). We've run into a bit of a snag, however.

The Robotics VMs are ephemeral, created off of a master image. They will all have exactly the same thing that's on the master image. We were following the guide here:

The way to do this seems to be to install the CyberArk Credential Provider on the master VM, so that all "satellite" VMs have the CP, and then use it to get credentials indirectly from the CyberArk server. However, due to some confusion over licensing, we have to speak to CyberArk reps to make sure we're setting it up correctly.

I also noticed that there is a CredentialManager server configuration in CommonConfig.xml:

Is it possible to configure this to use the CyberArk server rather than having to use the local Credential Provider?

Has anyone else successfully integrated Robotics 19.1 and CyberArk who could share their method?
