15. RPA Challenge - Site Listener


#1

Create a XAML that has these inputs parameters

siteURL
Filter
ElementSelector
Property
Regex
Timeout

How will it work?
For example for siteURL = https://forum.uipath.com/latest it will retrieve all children that are links to forum topics and extract their ids. I want all ids of the first page topics. The property name will be used in a Get Attribute activity and the regex transformation will retrieve the id (if that’s the case) - which in our example is 27702.

It will do this every Timeout minutes.

In the end I want to obtain all the ids that were on the first page in the last hour but it should work with other websites to.

The output will be placed in a csv.

Hey @badita,

Tried to do something. May not be the best approach :smiley: Let me know if it works :slight_smile:

Still trying to figure out how do i trigger it every timeout minutes without using orchestrator.

Edit: Added Do-While loop to run the process every timeout interval.

Thanks,
Rammohan B.
