Start Transaction on retrieved Queue Items


Am I able to start a transaction on a queue item that I have retrieved with the Get Queue Items activity?

If I use the Get Transaction Item activity I get a transaction item according to a) Priority and b) insert order according to the FIFO principle. What if I want to deviate from this standard logic and want to have a look at all my queue items, before I choose the one to start a transaction on? What if i want to change the order of the items in the queue?

Is this possible with UiPath?

Thank you,

One more way to filter the queue items -

  • FilterStrategy - The strategy to use when filtering according to reference. The following options are available:
    • StartWith - looks for items whose references start with the value indicated in the Reference field.
    • Equals - looks for items whose references are the same as the value indicated in the Reference field.
  • Reference - Filters items according to their reference.

Thanks for the reply @KarthikByggari

I know I can use filters with the Get Queue Items activity. But can I start a transaction on any of these queue items I have retrieved?

As far as I am aware of, you cannot.

This is because that the ‘Get queue items’ activity is providing a dataset containing information about the queues, it is not linked to the Orchestrator like if you for instance use the ‘Get transaction item’.

No. You can only get the list of items from Queue.
To start transaction, you have to use the filter strategy of Get transaction.
