Hi All,

Can someone give me the steps and ways in detail to connect Mainframe system from UI Path ?

Thanks in Advance,

There are many different types of Mainframe terminal so you should be more specific. Also if you search there are many questions about Mainframe activities. However, to get you started you should download the terminal activities (from manage packages) and see how you get on.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. I have already tried as per the link given.

When i select connection type as “use existing profile” its asking for profile attachment like .rd5x , .rd3x and .rdox files. Where do you get these files. Is it auto generated file or do we need to create it manually?

I have also tried for Manually specified address. Even though i have given correct IP address and port number, It’s throwing the below error. kindly look into this and suggest me some idea to establish connection to mainframe application.

“message”:“Terminal Session : There was an error connecting to terminal. Error code: NotConnected”,“level”:“Error”,“timeStamp”:“2018-02-20T02:07:06.7648357-05:00”,“windowsIdentity”:“userid”,“agentSessionId”:“00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000”,“processName”:“TerminalSession”,“fileName”:“Main”,“jobId”:“33d96765-f77a-4bf7-981b-46c5f7d3867a”}

Thanks in Advance,
