Hi @mahendragr
You can use Orchestrator API to do this!

Hi @kuppu_samy

Thanks for your reply… I just want to see any example with it… so that it can be easily understand by me…

Hi @mahendragr,

I couldn’t show you an example. But I am sharing you the instructions.

  • Go to (Cloud Platform).
  • Choose your service and you will be directed to the community edition orchestrator.
  • Add some process using Uipath Studio. Go to UiPath
  • There you can have API references. i.e if you want to start a process through API, look at the jobs section.

But you need authentication token and process id to execute it. Please refer to the documentation.

Thank you @kuppu_samy

@kuppu_samy Actually i tried in command prompt with this command
“C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiRobot.exe” /file:“C:\Users\VIS\Documents\UiPath\WebsiteToMail\Sequence.xaml” /input:“{‘arg1’:‘hello’}”
and it is working fine but i want to do same thing from php… Is there any other way to execute without using orchestator?

Hi @mahendragr,
If you really want to do it from PHP, then you need Orcherstrator API. But the Orchestrator is the best way. We can keep track on jobs and logs.

I found this on
This will execute $cmd in the background (no cmd window) without PHP waiting for it to finish, on both Windows and Unix.

<?php function execInBackground($cmd) { if (substr(php_uname(), 0, 7) == "Windows"){ pclose(popen("start /B ". $cmd, "r")); } else { exec($cmd . " > /dev/null &"); } } ?>

You can use this function to run UIRobot.exe
