Converting Report to Bot create "new" "Hidden" tables

I found these in the app documentation. They did NOT exist BEFORE I converted a report to a BOT. Does converting to BOT create new tables? If so, where are they stored?

note: Visible? = NEVER

NOTE: we need BOT as a choice to select

Hi @Lucinda_Mason,

These tables are internal system tables. They allow functionality that lets you use data returned in previous steps. For example if you call a sub process and want to use the data returned from the sub process in an If/Else step’s expression. These tables will facilitated evaluating that expression.

Thanks. So they only contain data while the bot runs? Are they all on the Server side?

Did you know that the Descriptive Comment from a Report does NOT copy to the BOT? Or at least not where I can find it.
Comment existed in report

Comment missing from Bot

Yes, they are server side and contain data only when bots run.

Thanks for paying attention to that, Will get it fixed ASAP.

Seems like it might be a good idea to hide them in the generated app documentation–to avoid confusion like this. Is that possible?

The comments will now be copied over from the Workflow Rule/Report to the Bot.
