This approach is much easier than the traditional approach.
Go to your global account, Select Boosters and search for ‘Set up an Account for Automation Pilot’.
Click on Next, Configure the subaccount by clicking on the dropdown and selecting the one where you want to have the automation pilot service.
In this step, the automated setup will choose ‘standard’ by default. Select the ‘free’ plan.
In the next step, you can add the users in administrators and developers.

You can view the progress of the setup as shown below.
Once the booster has been successful, the following dialog box appears where you can navigate to the subaccount & check the instance of the automation pilot, roles assigned for the same.
Once you are on the subaccount, you can click on the Instance and Subscriptions, and click on the automation pilot and that opens the application.
You can now access the Automated Pilot.
You can now use some of the built in commands and automate manual process to avoid operational effort.
