Testing environment for custom activity

activities
package

#1

Hi guys,

We are trying to write and deploy custom activities for UIPath.
We use Visual studio to write worflow activities, then build nuget packages, import them to UIPath and test.
It’s quite time consumming this proccess and I’m wondering if there is a better way to do it. Can we test activities directly in Visual Studio ? Please advice !

Best,

Hi,

Yes, you can - here’s a starter on how to make a new WF console project:

It boils down to using WorkflowInvoker class, so once you’ll get that under your belt rest is easy to incorporate in other scenarios as well.
