I am personally stunned that this capability does not exist.
I don’t consider this an upvote, I consider it an
absolute requirement for the software.
We are creating bots do do a variety of corporate tasks… but every bot requires key input values which differ with every run (eg. Client Name, Answers to Questions, Who to notify when complete, etc).
When we started evaluating UiPath, the Orchestrator was not done yet… but the REST API to the robot gave us faith in what UiPath was doing (it was exactly the solution we needed). We just thought the Orchestrator would add scaling to a robot farm, central management, etc. But to see that capability deprecated now is almost unforgivable? Very bad decision…
We are currently rolling our own solution to deal with this… but not very happy about having to do it. Basically creating a custom extension which will call a service to ask for inputs instantiated on a queue. Bot we SHOULD be able to associate inputs directly with a specific job… not run a job and have it pick randomly off the queue.
I hope this gets addressed ASAP…
