Is there any support from UIPath for me to migrate RPA process currently running on IE to Edge?
@tina-lc.chiew, we are working on a tool that will migrate the selectors and open browser activities form IE to Edge/Chrome/FF. Pls note that, the automatic migration completion depends on the application you are automating. While most of the selector can be migrated, there are very specific cases where the selectors must be regenerated on Edge/Chrome/FF, like pop-ups (which are rendered differently between IE and other browsers). Also, all the target browsers require an UiPath extension to be installed, and after the migration, the process will have to be thoroughly tested.
Few important notes to help you plan correctly for the migration:
- if you plan to use Edge (Chromium) UIA support, this is available starting with:
** Studio 19.10.5 and UIAutomation.Activities 19.11.3
** Studio 20.4.1 and UIAutomation.Activities 20.4.1
- If you plan to run under Edge Chromium/IE Mode, they should know that the support was added in UIAutomation.Activities 20.10.+
Thus, if you are on running 18.4.x, even if the tool is going to be able to migrate most of the selectors, the Edge Chromium support is unavailable to 18.4 Robots.
While we think we will be able to migrate most of the selectors, we won’t be able to migrate the ones starting with ‘wnd’ tag. These identify pop-ups/alerts, and they are rendered differently by IE vs Chromium based browsers. They will need to be regenerated.
Also, the selectors containing variables for the ‘app’ property of the top tag, might not be migrated.
Obviously, everything will need to thoroughly tested.
Thanks for the above information. Is there ETA for the above-mentioned tool in the enterprise version.
Hi @gheorghestan , Team,
I have posted the same query here.
May I know when can we expect the tool to be available? We have quite alot of script on IE that needs to be converted from IE to MS Edge compatible.
Hi @robot_learner . We’re working on it as we speak and hope to have a preview version soon. By then, please go over this article and learn what the tool can do and what cannot.
Thanks for the clarification, greatly appreciated, will stay tuned!
