Package Naming Rules and Verified Owners

  • please use the format [Company/User].[Good Package Name].[Activities]
  • we’ll be able to reserve the prefix for you if you are a verified (real) user
  • once a prefix is reserved, only a group of users can upload packages with that prefix
  • packages created by the UiPath dev team are prefixed with UiPath.
  • packages created by UiPath employees are prefixed with UiPathTeam. and will be most of the time open sourced
  • we may mark users as “verified package owners”

For non-UiPath employees:

Which license types will you be accepting?
Is closed source acceptable (or code will need to be shown to UiPath for verification, but not open sourced)?
Are packages without activities (f.e. type extensions) allowed?
Will it be possible to get authentication tokens/keys for upload from CI/CD pipeline?
What documentation requirements will be imposed (because they will be, right? :wink: )? Will it be possible to include documentation into Activities Guide for verified packages?

Up to the author of the package.

It is. We won’t take any responsibility for 3rd party content. But I guess open source will spread faster.

Yes. We’ll actually add snippets, templates and soon library workflows too. For the first category Nuget Package Explorer is an excellent tool for unarchiving. Integration with Studio may come for those.

What do you think about using the community repo? https://github.com/UiPath/Community.Activities… we’ll add an auto deployment tool.

Something to sleep on.

The only verified packages are those created and supported by our dev team. They are already on the activities guide (I hope :)). The others are verified owners but we can’t take any responsibility for the content of their packages. I think that to allow other owners to post documentation in the activities guide will be an overhead for us.
