#3

Is there any integration with R?

Thanks.


#4

Not as I know, but you can always call external processes. So you could also call R script. In my opinion it will lead to bad style if you mix too many languages within UiPath, even I like R and Python. But .NET offers also a lot, so in most cases you really don’t need it. IMHO.


#5

Yes, I agree, but if activities last longer, and quick execution is in focus, then, some tasks could be done by R and meantime UiPath clicks here and there.
So, a kind of calculation, file upload to ftp and so on can be done by R, while UiPath is executing some transaction activities in ERP or preparing inputs for another task.
