How to rename the PDF file with specific name after downloading

Hi all,

I need to download the pdf’s from a portal for different policy numbers,
after downloading I need to rename the file.

Once I download the pdf file the default value of the pdf is “Health Plan Description”, after downloading the “Health Plan Description.pdf” file I need to rename to Health Plan Description_patientID_policynumber.pdf

Here the patientID and policy number comes from database as input.

please guide me how to achieve this.

Thanks in advance,

Use Rename File Activity of Uipath.
Give Existing File Name and New File Name into that Activity.

The policy number and patient ID are available from the input which is send/placed by client in shared folder

@HeartCatcher How do you know which parent id and policy number has to be included in the file name or is it the same policy number and parent id applies for all the files ??

Hey @HeartCatcher

Use Wait For Download Activity which gives you the file as output.

Then you can please use the Rename Activity to rename that particular file with a different name.

I hope you already have the Patient ID & Name retrieved, If you need any help on that, Please let me know.
