The LEAPWORK Controller is the central component in the LEAPWORK Automation Platform. Studio is depending on it to gain access to all the flows and related assets. The Controller also manages the Environments used for executing the automation flows.
When you start Studio the first time, it will automatically show you the available Controller(s) and prompt you to select which Controller to connect to. Before you do this, you cannot use LEAPWORK.
