  • UiPath.Orchestrator.dll.config. (E.G. C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Orchestrator) image.png
  • appsettings.production.json (E.G. C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Orchestrator\Identity)image.png
  • appsettings.production.json (E.G. C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Orchestrator\Webhooks)image.png
  1. Restart IIS by running IISRESET command, in the command prompt opened in administrator mode. It will take between 1-3 minutes to load the Orchestrator, in case this takes longer, check the event viewer logs.
