UiPath exploration

#1

Hi,

I am very new to RPA process and UiPath and below are the things I want to test in UiPath, Let me know are these possible or not.

  1. Create flows for Windows and Linux environments.
  2. My assumption is like need to install Robots on every client machine to make Orchestrator to execute flow on servers.
  3. How can we add Robots(Clients) and Flows to Orchestartor?
  4. I can see the terminology using tenants, how can we create them? what kind of representation UiPath giving to it?
  5. Is there any readily available API calls to triggers flows through Orchestrator?

if can provide any possible info/documentation that would be very great, So I can evaluate UiPath further.

Hi Lakshmi,

Welcome to our community!

Here are your answers:

  1. You can only create workflows on Windows(our UiPath platform can only be installed on Windows OS)
  2. You’re right, the Robot has to be installed on the machine in order to be able to run your processes.
  3. First you install the Robot on the machine. Then, in Orchestrator you simply provision it from the Robots page and then you connect the Robot to Orchestrator.
  4. There is a parameter in Orchestrator web.config that allows you to enable creating tenants. You can see an example of how this works in Orchestrator Community Edition - Become a tenant. And documentation with details about tenants: https://orchestrator.uipath.com/docs/about-tenants
  5. Yes it is. You can check how it works using this link: https://platform.uipath.com/swagger/ui/index#/

Links to all available documentation are in this post: UiPath Documentation

Hi Viorela,

Thank you very much for your responses.

I am not able to add Robot to Orchestrator, the addition option is greyed out for me. Is there any configuration changes/License needed to enable it?

One more thing I have created simple file creation flow and when I published it in studio, Workflow is not getting into orchestrator, is there any communication needs to enable b/w studio and Orchestrator to populate published items in Orchestrator?

Thanks,
Lakshmi.
