Automation in background


Welcome to UiPath forum

When you want to run a process in background with UI interaction then go for Unattended bots

Have a view on this for details

We can’t use background process as we won’t be able to interact with UI elements when background process template is used

Background processes must not make use of interactive activities, like Click or Type Into found in the UiPath.UIAutomation.Activitiespackage. Check out the Background Process Automation page to read more about how the Robot handles such processes

In short

if you can do with api and interact with the application without UI Interaction, then you can use BACKGROUND PROCESS template


If it involves UI interaction and there is no api option then go for UnAttended bot
It can access the elements with simulate option
