I am working on a demo to download multiple files from a desired folder in SharePoint by using UiPath Integration Services. Connector used here is “Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint”.
Orchestrator: Automation Cloud (Enterprise License)
Activities Package: UiPath.MicrosoftOffice365.Activities v2.1.1
Following is the screenshot from Studio on how activities are configured:
Issues in Activity Panel:
a. You cannot find/configure the item name in For-Each activity. if you use Ctrl + Space in child activities in For-Each, you will be able to see CurrentItem variable available to use.
b. In child activity, you have to re-configure connection. It does not uses parent activity connection.
c. In download file activity, you cannot provide target download location
I configured my connections in both activities and also the desired path to be read. To download the files, I passed a variable in Download File activity. While running the same in Studio has worked fine as I have provided all the required resources.
Now, after publishing the package, I have started to create a process out of it. In Package requirements screen, you can configure the values for Integration related activities.
Issues in Orchestrator:
a. While, I have configured the connection and activity values but in Download File activity, I have already passed the value as a variable, why the value needs to be configured here. Also, it shown here as mandatory field which adds to the confusion.
b. Even if, we go ahead to configure the value, it does not show options related to SharePoint, it only show options of OneDrive.
Could anyone help on this or provide some inputs?
