Problem with RestSharp in Invoke Code: RestRequest could not be found

Hello All,

I’m trying to make an API request from Invoke Code activity (C#). The code looks like this:

var client = new RestClient();
client.BaseUrl = new Uri("");
var request = new RestRequest(Method.POST);
request.AddHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
request.RequestFormat = DataFormat.Json;
string abc;
    abc = "123"
IRestResponse response = client.ExecuteRequestAsync(request);

I’m getting the following errors:
CS0246: The type or namespace “RestRequest” could not be found
CS0103: The name “DataFormat” does not exist in current context
CS0246: The type or namespace “IRestResponse” could not be found

All the three items named in errors are part of the RestSharp library. I see “RestSharp” in the list of imported namespaces in Studio. But, it seems that the code in Invoke Code activity cannot access RestSharp. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Good afternoon
I would like to know if you managed to solve the problem?

The only version of restsharp I have been able to use successfully in UIPath is version 106.3.1.

Please see example below:

var client = new RestSharp.RestClient();
client.BaseUrl = new Uri(varUrl);

var request = new RestSharp.RestRequest(RestSharp.Method.POST);

request.AddCookie(name, value);

IRestResponse response = client.Execute(request);
