UiPath Automation Ops course - Feedback Space

We want to hear your feedback‌.
If you have any ideas, issues or improvement suggestions relating to the Academy‌ UiPath Automation Ops course, please feel free to add them in this thread.

Note: The course is set to be released on May 14th.


First of all, I would like to thank you and UiPath team for your wonderful efforts towards improving your products and your focus on making RPA governance as efficient as possible.

Today I am here to share some observations and suggestions which we have come across during governance implementation at an enterprise level in our organization.
Please note: we are using studio governance feature applicable in on-prem version but I believe same would apply to automation ops as well hence, sharing this with you as well.

Topic: Ability to also apply governance at Process level using Automation ops

Current granularity level to apply governance - At users level, tenant level, group level(users grouped), product level.
Recommendation - If there is also an ability to apply governance policy at process level(or a set of processes), governance model would be more agile as in current scenario, if a person is working on different range of processes(highly sensitive, mid-level, low-level sensitive), then in that case, applying a same set of rules might not fulfill the right purpose for applying governance as different levels of restrictions might be required on processes based on their sensitivity and other factors. So, if processes can be classified into different groups and hence be applied different set of rules, that would add a lot more advantage to the use of governance at an enterprise level and we can be sure of the fact that highly sensitive processes are going through a stringent set of rules while others are given relaxation due to no risk factor involvement.

Hope you find this info helpful in further improving governance model.



Another feedback that I have for sharing is as below:

Topic: Ability to disable edits for only a set of rules in Workflow Analyzer through Governance(Automation ops)

  1. Current behavior of governance – whenever governance is enabled, and section “AllowEdit” is set is TRUE under “Analyzer” section, this disables edit for all of the workflow analyzer rules in studio by anyone.
    Recommendations -
  • There can be scenarios for organizations wherein they only require/want to enforce security specific or a set of rules at an enterprise level thus giving all different teams an ability to control the working/action for rest of the rules(under warning category or the ones that are not picked/defined in policies.config file). This would help enable a enforced/governed(only to the extent required) culture instead of enabling a full restrictive culture(not even required) and people in the organizations would be more receptive to this change.
  • Currently, irrespective of the list of rules defined in policies.config file, all workflow analyzer rules are disabled for editing. There can be some feature like in here where only rules that are defined in policies.config file are picked for disabling edits in workflow analyzer and rest remains very well open to the users.
  1. Current behavior post governance – users can’t even include custom rules and control their functioning/actions/settings as due to governance enabled, everything is disabled in analyzer settings window.
    Recommendation -
  • There can be a separate section in policies.config file which controls the settings/edits etc for custom rules. So an organization can very well leave this piece to individual developers to explore and utilize. This way developers also don’t feel deprived of the basic rights(to code/experiment) as a developer :slight_smile:

Hope this turns out to be a useful and helpful suggestion in further improving governance model.


Hi @sonaliaggarwal47 ,
