Python & UiPath FIPS Error

Hi all,

I’m am receiving this error when trying to execute a python script in UiPath. The script works if executed through an IDE like Spyder. I saw a previous forum about disabling FIPS-encrpytion requirements, unfortunately that is not an option for us. Is there any way around this error.

PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089]]: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

Hi @programfan

Welcome to our UiPath Forum! :slight_smile:

Could you maybe provide a sample project that reproduces the issue?

Hi Maciej, I’m having the same issue - sharing some of my project files in case you’re able to take a look. I’m unfortunately at a standstill after a full day of researching the web, posting to forums, & independently investigating. My deadline is tomorrow. I’m running 64-bit Python 3.8 and have already confirmed that the script otherwise works fine in my environment. The simple Python script I’m attempting to load is block-quoted below: Exception Thrown.txt (2.5 KB) TEST.xaml (7.7 KB)

  def FuzzyContains(String1, String2):
        from fuzzywuzzy import fuzz
        TokenSetRatio = fuzz.token_set_ratio(String1,String2)
        return TokenSetRatio

Hi @Mox

Just to make sure, have you tried the latest Python activity package?

Hi Maciej, I did. It turned out the issue was driven by a FIPS cryptographic algorithm, so our organization’s technical support team provided a fix. Thank you!
