Create Asset API with Specific Folder


I tried to create asset using Orchestrator HTTP Request, it works but I need the asset to be added to specific folder not ‘Default’ folder, is there any way to do that.

I used the following JSON input

	"Name": "Test",
	"ValueScope": "Global",
	"ValueType": "Text",
	"StringValue": "123"

Thank you

Hi Malak, did you found the way to create asset with specific folder. If so could you please share the sample XAML. I also want to use the sepecific folder…

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

If you want to create Asset in specific folder then your request must contain either the FolderId or FolderPath in an HTTP header.

  1. First find out the Folder ID or Folder path for your required folder.

  2. Then pass that Folder ID into your post request to create Asset into it.

Thank you guiding to the link.

Using orchestrator API this worked for me
end point url : odata/assets/? fid = 1 & tid =1
and Payload as given in the answer

Hope this helps other people as well.

how you got the tid ?

Hello @vibhor7296 ,

You can check the url when you login to a particular folder of a tenant;
look for fid=1 & tid=2 something like this

Thanks Akwar for the prompt response. Can we get the tid by any activity or any other api during runtime ?

Hello @vibhor7296,

In my case I have read access to UiPath database.
So that is also one solution.

Please make sure that your api request you have a key X-UiPath-OrganizationUnitId with value same as the folder id.
No need to pass it in url…

And that you have the create permission in assets in that folder.
