I´ve created a custom activity, selecting data from a database using Entity Framework 6. This activity was made with Visual Studio 2017 (C#). The Unit Test works fine, but when I create a NuGet Package and use this in my UiPath Project, I´ll get the following error:
No connection string named ‘XXXEntities’ could be found in the application config file
So here are some screenshots:
- NuGet Package with the Custom Activities
As you can see, EF is implemented as a dependency. I´ve tried multiple choices with the package content files: Only the both DLL, both DLL with the App.config, both DLL with both dll.config and so on. The result was still the same.
- Package Manager in UiPath Studio
- The Activity in my UiPath Studio Project
The reason why we do this in this way is that we have a local copy of our SAP database/tables in MS SQL Server 2014.
I would now like to know what the special features are if I want to use a custom activity with EF6 in UiPath.
I´ve no Screenshots of the Custom Activity Source Code because it runs in Unit Testing, so in my opinion, it is error-free.
Any help is welcome, thanks in advance!
P.S. This is my first question, I hope I placed it correctly here, otherwise let me know where´s the right place to ask.
