Performance improvements were made for the start-up of a process. Whenever you start the Robot, by default, the following pre-loaded executors are automatically launched:
- On Windows: Windows and Legacy
- On Mac: Cross-platform (Portable)
You can overwrite the default behavior by adding the UIPATH_PRE_LOADED_EXECUTOR user environment variable to the robot machine with the value None. This way, the pre-loaded executor only starts when the first process is run.
The pre-loaded executor feature is only available for attended execution processes started from UiPath Assistant, RobotJS, Studio, or the command line interface. An unattended job starting from Orchestrator launches a single executor when the job starts.
You can now see the execution job recordings for unattended robots. For this to be possible, what you need to do is to enable the Job Recording in your Orchestrator from the Processes Edit Additional Settings interface.
You can select if you want to record only failed jobs or all jobs.
After the job finishes executing, open the contextual menu on the Jobs interfaces and select “Open recording” to see the magic happen.
You can find out more about it in this here Recording - Preview release
We now provide live streaming for unattended robots that will help you debug easier! More than that, you can also remote control when live streaming . To make this happen, access Orchestrator → choose your folder → identify an automation → click edit and enable “Allow live streaming” and, if you want, check Enabled for Allow remote control when live streaming.
While the automation is running you can see the live streaming from the Jobs interface, by clicking on the contextual menu of the running automation and then on the Open live stream option. If you want to interact within the environment, simply click on Take remote control.
In the GIF below you can see an example:
In the Assistant Launchpad, below the “UiPath Products” section, a new group called “Favorites” will be available. When Assistant is used in single column view, this group will be visible in the Automations List in the Home tab. Other groups can still be created in Launchpad, and they will also appear in the Home tab.
We did some changes in the way you can navigate between menus while you use Assistant in a single column.
UiPath Assistant introduces the Running Tab! This tab reveals itself on the details panel when you start running an automation, displaying the progress through status messages. These messages are filled via the Report Status activity by the automation creator. On the Running Tab, the status messages go along with a time-lapse that indicates when the specific status finishes, therefore now you can easily see the progress and the total time your automation takes to run!
Keep in mind that for this to work ideally and to create a great running experience, your automation needs to use the Report Status activity as much as needed. You can read more about this activity here.
This tab is not persistent, so you can dismiss it after the automation has run, or you can start running the automation again.
You can now see which arguments have default values defined at design time simply from the Assistant. If a variable has a default value and is not modified, the automation will run with that default value. You can also update them with your preferred values.
You can share automations with a colleague! You can do this by clicking the share icon next to the automation name on the details interface.
A link along with a message is copied into your clipboard, and now you can paste it on an email or message!
Try it out! But keep in mind that this feature works only for automations found in shared folders
To disable the sharing of an automation, access Automation Ops → Governance → select the policy → Feature Toggles and select No for “Allow users to share an automation URL”
Now if a process was created because of an idea, you can conveniently access that corresponding idea in Automation Hub by clicking on the "More details" link from the details interface.
