UiPath Assistant Default Values for Parameters


I couldn’t find answer for that anywhere so either I’m bad at searching or this does not exists but I want to ask anyway.

We are deploying quite a few AR, each user will have his own config file depending on his windows and file setup. We give users the ability to set the path to that config file inside the Parameters when they run robot from UiPath Assistant.

Can we preset the argument values for each user individually?
I know that it’s possible to set a default in studio.
I want to set a parameter so each user on his/her pc will have a different default value.
User A: Path = C://UserA
User B: Path = C://UserB

It would be convenient for users not to fill the path every time they want to run the robot.

Thanks for answers,

About which Robot config file are you talking about?

Here are the locations for various config files:

  • The settings in the folders %PROGRAMPDATA%\UiPath, %LOCALAPPDATA%\UiPath, and %APPDATA%\UiPath
  • The packages folder %USERPROFILE%.nuget\packages
  • The NuGet cache folder %LOCALAPPDATA%\NuGet\v3-cache
  • The Assistant processes folder in the Windows Start menu %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\UiPath Assistant Processes

You can change the installation path of Robot and/or Studio by using this parameter APPLICATIONFOLDER in a command line.

Reference: Command Line Parameters

Via a GUI installation, you can also specify the Installation directory:

For Quick → The default location is: %LocalAppData%\Programs
For Custom → The default location is:

  • %LocalAppData%\Programs for per-user installations.
  • %ProgramFiles% for per-machine installations.
