Dear UiPath Community,
I am excited to announce the upcoming release of a new feature powered by our Robots and available in UiPath Orchestrator and Studio Web (Preview): Job Recording. On behalf of all the teams involved, I am more than thrilled to share this feature with you, our community, thus allowing you to troubleshoot faulted jobs more efficiently.
With Video Recording, you can capture the last 3 minutes of the robot execution, which can be incredibly useful in identifying if anything went wrong during job processing. You can configure the feature at process creation and choose to record only faulted jobs or all jobs for Serverless Robot executions, Windows robots 23.2 or newer, ACR VM robots to soon follow. Later Edit: as many of you have expressed interest in testing on Enterprise environments, please note that the 23.4 Robot Enterprise release will be needed, so until then, Serverless is the only option to test this in; thanks for your interest and patience!
But here’s where we have another surprise for you: we are going to enable Screenshots as well, a feature which was available Enterprise only until now, working on Windows Robots older than 19.3.
Once generated and uploaded, the recordings are available in:
- Orchestrator (both video and screenshots) - in the Job Details or in the Jobs extended grid menu, can be viewed in a new tab or PiP alongside the logs page, playback speed can be set and you can also download it (in Chrome, other browsers’ playback capabilities are more restrictive at this time)
- Studio Web Preview (video) - under Runs, you will notice a playback icon for executions with Video Recording enabled. NOTE: you can only enable Video Recording via Orchestrator, when editing the process.
It’s important to note that video recordings will be stored for 7 days and then automatically deleted. The retention period might be subject to further changes or future refinements. You will soon be able to also delete them manually in the Job Details or via API as you deem fit. Rest assured that all user operations will be audited, ensuring complete transparency and accountability.
The Recording feature will be available as a Preview feature to all Community users for a limited time only, so we encourage you to try it out, give us your feedback, and help us make it even better.
For more details and insights on how to best configure and use it, please consult our docs page here.
There’s nothing like trying it out for yourself, but to give you an idea of what it is, here’s a quick demo of the feature below:
As always, we’re committed to providing innovative solutions to our users, and the Video Recording feature is a testament to that commitment. We hope that it will make troubleshooting job executions much easier and more efficient for you.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We value your feedback, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts on this exciting new feature.
Thank you for your continuous support!
