Sequential Automation of Jobs


I am new to UIPath. Thank you for any input you might have.

How would we run jobs in a predefined sequence? I am familiar with ETL and one would have jobs that needed to run in a particular order… job A kicks off job B when it was done and then B invokes C once completed. Does UIPath have this capability? I understand one can run a sequence within a job but can separate jobs/workflows be “chained” together?

In the most fundamental way I think you can set it up as follows.

Get your Automations A, B and C deployed

Have a Master Automation that can loop through the list A, B and C and then use the Start Job Activity (I think) to trigger each automation.

But what you need to check for is if the Start Job waits until A completes before it goes around the loop and kicks of B.

If not, you have to get the Status of Job A and build a wait activity until the Job status changes to Success before kicking off the Job B.

The other option is to use Orchestrator APIs.

Hope this helps.
