How does a robot login to a website?

I am new to RPA and I am trying to get the Robot to login to an external website using credentials. How is the best way to do this?

Normally, simply type them into the website and click login.
You can get the credentials from an asset or the credentials manager.

I see you passed the UiPath advanced exam so I’m surprised this scenario never came up in any of your training so perhaps I’m oversimplifying your question? If you want to ask something more specific or advanced please explain in more detail.

Hello @csanders

Welcome to UiPath community…!

Hope you need a clarity on the storing the credentilals… If yes, you can either store it in Orchestrator assets or in Windows credential manager. Then you can use the Credential activities, like Get Secure credential to get the saved credential.

Once you fetched the credential you can use Type into to type it to the login field.

Note: Don’t hardcord the credentials in the workflow


Hi Rahul,

Thank you for getting back to me on this :slight_smile:

That’s great thank you I will give that a go and see if it works. I haven’t done it in almost a year since passing the qualification, so fingers crossed.
