Orchestrator API help


Please help me with below questions:
In the current API documentation, we need a robot ID to start a job, but there is no suggestion on how to retrieve it
I would also like to know the Deployment API option in the Orchestrator and its functionality

A first exploartion we can do while playing with swagger or postman:
The Orchestrator API Swagger definition can be accessed as follows, depending on your deployment type:

  • on-premise - add the following suffix: /swagger/index.html to your Orchestrator URL. For example, https://myOrchestrator.com/swagger/index.html .
  • Automation Cloud - add the account and tenant name, as well as the /swagger/index.html suffix to the URL. For example, https://cloud.uipath.com/[AccountLogicalName]/[TenantName]/swagger/index.html .
    Find your Account Logical Name and Tenant Name in the API Access page of your Automation Cloud account.

on the examples we got some more help e.g.:

Also a play with the Orchestrator HTTP Activity allows us to explore some more things

If using Postman, can also look at https://postman.uipath.rocks/
