Solution Accelerator Documentation and Question(s)


I’m going through one of the PDF documentations packaged in a Solution Accelerator.

I see instructions to switching between Classic and Modern experiences in the PDF. But these UI features have evolved in the latest studio (2024.2.*) CE updates. This is a screen shot from the PDF that I have read through and recorded comments on.

This is at the Project Level:

And this is at the Studio Level:

Both of these do not exist in the latest 2024.2.* update of Studio. Therefore I went back to the documentation online and found this note:

Therefore, I presume that the online documentation is the right way to go. And sure enough I can see the classic activities after following the online documentation.

IMHO, this detour kind of “decelerated” my “accelerator” process. Therefore, would including such ever changing features of the product in SA documentation really serve the objective to accelerate? Instead would providing a link to the documentation portal be the better option?

Reason why this has come up and Solution Failure:

The documentation on reusability advises that we should return a reference to an application or Browser window.

I wanted to do something like this for an Excel Workbook object (output by the Classic Excel Application Scope activity).
I don’t know how this is done in the Modern Excel counterpart and therefore wanted to switch to the classic mode and ended up taking a detour.

However this approach of using a classic activity in Modern experience failed because each time I tried to return reference to the Workbook as an output argument, the flow failed with this error:

System.Exception: Could not retrieve the result of the job execution. This might be because a message was too large to process.


Hey Andy,
We are looking into this and will update on thread accordingly.
