Automation/Idea/Process - Application - Relation through API?


I am having trouble to figure out, how to get a relation between an automation-idea an the used applications (as stated in the automation profile) using the API.

“Get Automations” gets me all automations, but without a reference to the used automations (at least according to the documentation Swagger UI (

“Get AppInventory” gets me all applications and states that they are used by an idea, but it does not list, which idea is using these applications. Swagger UI (

Am I missing something?

Or do I have to build a workaround, where I iterate through all application IDs and filter the “get automations” request using the applications filter?
This cannot be the intended method for this.

FYI: I need this relation to rebuild our automations in our EAM system.

Thanks in advance

I have similar issue. I can get the number of applications per automation idea, but the “applications” column is empty.

Is it something that API is missing right now and it will be updated in the future releases? Or am I doing something wrong?

Thank you,

There is a property for the automatin from “Get Automations” called “process_applications”.
It lists the application IDs in a string with a , delimiter.
Not sure why UiPath chose a string instead of an json array.
But it will suffice.
