UiPath Processes as a Batch Execution


#1

Hi ,

Can we run the UI Path Business Processes as a Batch Files? Example: I want to run the Business Processes in CI Tools like Jenkins, Bamboo, Team City, Microsoft VSTS etc.

As of now, I cannot see this option in UI Path.Could someone suggest me if this option is already available in UI Path .

Best Regards,
Aravind.

Hi @aravind.r ,

To answer the question, there isn’t such a mechanism where you can directly call UiPath workflows in CI software.
But to elaborate, UiPath is another process automation software where we just are transforming Front office and back office tasks to process and driving them, where as CI tools deliver IT delivery through integration, like auto build and auto deploy packages based on the plugins. If you still would like to use Jenkins to run UiPath workflows, you can create a batch files calling the xaml using UiRobot and then integrate in Jenkins. This way each time a new build is made, that can be called through UiRobot to extract the .nupkg into xaml and run automatically through Jenkins.
Documentation on running UiPath xaml with robot can be found below

Hi @ABRK,

Do you have in place a CI/CD pipeline for UiPath Projects?
If not, would you be interested in such thing?

Thanks,

Hi Bogdan,

Thanks for asking.
We infact have an existing CD running at one of our client, an Oil &Gas firm in US. I would like to know on UiPath approach on CI/CD as I would want to leverage this to my customer in Bay Area,CA.

Besides, we are pretty impressed with the new integrations and enhancements done in the tool and delighted to watch it live from you at the UiPath forward event in Miami.
