If you are using the (non-Community) trial version, you should also be able to connect your robot to the demo and try out the remote command options.


I don’t know. I am not one of the developers, so if you have specific ideas you could try asking them in the #ideas category. Also, note that the Text, Int and Bool assets are only stored as such by Orchestrator; they all translate into a GenericValue when retrieved in a workflow, while a Credential results in String (username) and SecureString (password) variables.

You can only currently store UiPath’s .NET types by including them in the ItemInformation property of a QueueItem when submitting it to a queue. The robot that later processes this item can read them back for use in the workflow it’s executing.

Yes, provided the robot’s logging level is set appropriately. By default I think a robot will log messages of the lnformation level and above.
