UiPath debugging steps or when developing

Hello to all!

Sorry for the possibly stupid question. I am looking for a way how can I stop the process during debugging and go to any other action in the process to execute it next?
For example, in Blue Prism, I can choose any of the following actions, how to do it in UiPath?

Sergei

we can include BREAK POINTS at any activity we want to stop and use STEP INTO or STEP OVER option to go through the next set of activities
we can see these options in DEBUG tab in studio

Thanks for your reply. That is, should I do STEP INTO or STEP OVER before the action that interests me? And if I need to go back in the sequence chain?

yes actually ,
so i hope we dont need to make the same explain because @Palaniyappan mention you it well :slight_smile:

Fine
we can use STEP INTO activity if we want to debug activities one at a time, i.e., each activity is executed one by one

while STEP OVER is used which does not open the current container. When used, the action debugs the next activity, highlighting containers (such as flowcharts, sequences, or Invoke Workflow File activities) without opening them.

This action comes in handy for skipping analysis of large containers which are unlikely to trigger any issues during execution.

and here you can find more debugging actions

Thanks for your reply too. So how to return to the previous action in the sequence if the actions are only forward (STEP INTO and STEP OVER)?

you mean like STEP BACK ?

yes, something like that because clicking many times is tiring

i hope there is no option for that may be in future…
but usually we used to debug from top to bottom (flow starts from one point and add break points step by step so that we wont be in need to get back)

and but may be at some point if we want to get back to the previous one, we need to get there manually

I will vote for the opportunity to choose the next action using the context menu, after the breakpoint :smiley:
Thanks for your help!
