Its create on orchestrator, but to gather those it’s a development

No issue u can update those in orchestrator and give your development team to those information or

Even u can give a new user created for development team to manage those assets themself
While you can see all ASSETES you and they are creating

eg in config file we have two URL of one application

  1. UAT URL
  2. Production URL
    Now in config file if we want to run this on UAT then we put URL of UAT in config file then it work for UAT and same as production.
    Now in case of asset what I need to do…??

If they have the access to orchestrator and if they want to run whenever they require from orchestrator and can pass parameter before running then they can use INPUT and OUTPUT parameters


If they don’t have the access to orchestrator then we can pass the Value as ASSET to the process

And for both the stage it is first handled in orchestrator and also inside the workflow

Like for arguments we need to have IN arguments defined in the workflow
If asset we need to use GET ASSET activity to get the value from orchestrator

Inside the workflow create arguments of IN direction
For example

Place thee arguments in the workflow were we will be calling the config file as a dictionary for each value

Now from orchestrator we will be able to see the arguments in the JOB page and if we give the value there it will be taken inside the workflow throw those IN arguments

No sorry I did not understand

In previous using config file ie excel I am getting URL from excel where mentioned execute application for production or UAT.
Now All the code related to config file is deleted now variable are left.

As you have passed the value for those argument from orchestrator we need to get them inside the workflow
Either use those arguments directly to pass the value or use a assign activity and get the value from those arguments to a variable and then use those variables buddy

I have a slight variant of this question. I can’t seem to override the input parameter to the Main.xaml in the REF application I’ve built at the Process Level.

I ran a quick test and the Attended process does not work if I compile and publish my package after removing the default value in the input parameter.

This works:

But this does not! Here the package is published after removing default value like so:

And then I pass in the file name as an input parameter at the Process Level as shown here (Processes > View Process > Parameters)


But it fails with “unable to find file” error. :frowning:

—usually for attended bots if ran from robot tray it won’t be able to take the parameters from orchestrator
I think this feature is in pipeline

Hi @Palaniyappan
I have the same problem
I created 3 in_Arguments

  1. with a browser URL
  2. a Path location for saving file
  3. a name for the file
    but when im doing a"log message" and want to see those arguments inside the process (inserted the values in to the arguments inside the process page of the orchestrator) i dont get any value at all
    PLEASE HELP ME because i searched and couldn’t find any help on the subject…

Can you have an outer process read a settings file and then pass the parameters as arguments to your actual process?

Based on the previous discussions it looks like Attended Bots running from the Robot Tray cannot accept input parameters.

Another option is to build your process using REFramework. It has the ability to put settings into a config file and pass it to your process.

Hope this helps.
