I want to be fair with you I use this only when I create the movie. Please tell me the exact second of the movie where you have issues because I really don’t know.

Hi @Cristian_Negulescu,

Thank you for creating such amazing videos

I found the error: The issue was that the gmail library was not added.

On the new Apps Script Interface this is the new path to do it

Is there any way to get a file attached from the email using Apps Script?

Thanks for your detailed reply.

I will study to see how you can do this.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful tutorial. is it still working in 2022 since Gmail already update its security?

thank you

So a way to do this is to have the file somewhere on WEB with a link on google drive and you will pass the link as a parameter of the process here:
‘InputArguments’:‘{"param1":"YOUR LINK","param2":"Video Live 21:21"}’
and in UiPath Studio you do the download for the file.

Could we get the attached file from the email that is triggering the process?

To download the file you need to use the object: GmailAttachment from this documentation

But like I said on the orchestrator you need a link, not a file.

function searchInbox(){
const results =‘has:attachment’,0,5);
let counter = 0;
const messages = thread.getMessages();
const attachments = message.getAttachments();
const subjectEmail = message.getSubject();
Logger.log(‘***’+ subjectEmail);
if(data.getContentType() == ‘text/csv’){
const csv = data.getAs(‘text/csv’);
const newFile = DriveApp.createFile(csv);
newFile.setName(‘NEW csv ‘+counter+’.csv’);
var resourceKey = newFile.getDownloadUrl();
