14. RPA Challenge - 4X2 - FOUR full 'client' processes to automate!


Hello everyone,

I have a difficult and lengthy challenge for you. We have devised four client processes - that very much resemble real life, and we are interested in the best solutions for automating them.

IF and ONLY IF you feel up to the task and have a lot of time to spend working on these automations, please commence by following the following steps (sic):

  1. Go to http://www.acme-test.com
  2. Register
  3. Access “User Options” -> “Reset Test Data” <- this will clear all your data and generate a new set. Use this option whenever you want during your development / testing / etc.
  4. Access “User Options” -> “Download Client and Support” <- you will find the second application here, to be used in two of the processes. It is a Desktop app. You will also find Process Description Documents for the FOUR processes you need to automate. Read them from A to Z.

That’s it!

Only the brave will dare, only the best will finish!

Good luck,

Screen Scrap Full Text Not Getting All Columns from Desktop Application Data Grid
Level 3 advanced training UiDemo dispatcher sequence problem (In case anyone has the same problem)

Now that’s interesting!

Quick questions:

  1. Are xamls enough or are you expecting supporting documentation as well?
  2. Are custom activities allowed?
  3. Is modifying process flow (as long as all checks and results are the same) allowed?


These are 4 long automation exercises - each will be counted as 2.


It would be great if we can work in groups… like some moderators could lead 2 or 3 active members…


I cant automate anything at desktop app, uipath dont give me any selector …

Anyone with the same issue?? or how to fix it?


  1. Project folder (zipped) would be perfect.
  2. No
  3. To a certain extent, yes.


I don’t think you should have any issue with the Desktop app.


Stefan, can you tellme your mail to show you at hangouts??

I’ve downloaded again the .zip, and it’s still the same, i cant get any selector from this application.

Thank you!



Just execute UiPath Studio and UIExplorer in compatibility with W7


That’s an interesting idea. Although it would make it even more like real work :stuck_out_tongue: (that’s part of the point I guess).

So just working project - ok.


No time for this one! :stuck_out_tongue:


Hey @Stefan_Vrabie ,

Here we go.
WI4GenerateYearlyReportforVendor.zip (211.8 KB)

I know it’s very late but they say it’s never late to start good work.:writing_hand:
Got some free time on the occasion of karnataka rajyotsava :fireworks::balloon::flags:
Randomly chose to have a look into 4th process :

WI4 - Generate Yearly Report for Vendor:

  • Please change credential.

  • Please reset the test data manually before running workflow.

  • Please add your local path in workflow DownloadMonthlyReport ,
    Assign activity "reportFolderPath".

That’s pretty much it. Tested and it works like charm. :sunglasses: hahah on
UiPath CE 2017.1
windows 10 .
IE 11.674

PS: 5th process looks bit easy one compare to rest.
I think @certified can kick start with that one. :+1:

Cheers ,
