Hey @kchinnadurai

This is possible, you can create subfolders in the storage buckets. But the thing is…

You may not see it as subfolders in storage buckets as it will be all inside one bucket and multiple sub-folders displaying as below…

This is one big HR bucket which may have subdirectories inside like Operations, TalentAcquisition etc…

You can see the subfolders slash and then the actual file name.

If you want a more clear view, you may create all these as a separate storage bucket folder…

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hey @kchinnadurai

It is possible in two ways either manually or programmatically.

1. Manually

  • Create a new Storage Bucket

  • Navigate inside the SB & click upload file

  • Browse and Select your file

SB - Browse file - nmnithinkrishna

  • Now provide your path if required

\Testdata.xlsx means it will be uploaded to the root dir

\SubFolder\Testdata.xlsx means - SubFolder will be created under root dir & file will be uploaded to the newly created Sub Folder

Similarly you can add any number of subfolders or nested subfolders as well

You can see below, the file path is now updated as required.

Edited storage bucket uipath - nmnithinkrishna

  • Upload and submit the file

You can now see the file uploaded here with subfolder path.


2. From Automation Code

Upload file SB sun dir - nmnithinkrishna

Hope this helps.

This helps. Thank you. Also how can i view the file directly from Orchestrator? say if I am uploading the file, how the other person can open and see the data. I tried opening it directly but it is resulting in error. Thanks!
