We should use Arguments to communicate between two different workflows.

If you don’t want to use Arguments then write the data into Orchestrator Assets and from there you can read it again.

It generates a DataTable from Structured text.



Developer will create SDD documents by referring requirements from PDD documents. AS-IS flow will be given by Business SME as per their current process. Developer should analyse the process and will find out automated things out of it. I.e. To Be flow.


Hey @someshwar2512

Here is the answers,

  1. Lifecycle is something common for Software development, so RPA

ReqGathering → Development → Testing → Deployment → Support → CR (and the cycle continues)

As developer,

  • Primary role will be in development and testing phase

  • Supporting role in other phases

  1. For passing data between workflows we have arguments which is nothing but similar to variables with extra power to transfer data outside or inside a workflow

  2. Generate Data Table will be an activity to convert delimited text into a data table (any delimiters like comma, space, etc)

For Example Below data can be converted into data table without building any logic.


Hope this helps
