Access UNC Path

studio

#1

Hello All,

I am trying to access a UNC share to retrieve files from the location.
My Query is which identity is getting passed to access the UNC location by UIPath Robot. Is it a system user or the human user.
Finally can I change this identity via impersonation etc to resolve the concern.
Appreciate your help in advance

Thanks & Regards

It is the user context in witch the robot runs.
If you login to your account, and run the robot, it uses your access rights.
If your co-worker logs into the same machine and runs the robot, it will use his access rights.

I don’t think it’s possible to change this directly in UiPath.
I have never tried this, but i would look into trying to start robot.exe as another user (before running the workflow).
Not sure if it’s possible thou.
