WebDav Automation or Custom HTTP Methods

Hi,

we’re trying to automate processes which uses Nextcloud (and possibly other filehosting solutions) as their file hosting solution.

The Nextcloud API is well documented and largely based on the WebDav protocol.

As I was looking for WebDav activities for UiPath I didn’t find a single one which was kinda sad. But ok, then I’ll have to build it myself using the HTTP Request activity… Or so I thought.

WebDav uses special HTTP methods like PROPFIND, MKCOL and a few more.

Unfortunately I haven’t found a way to use custom methods with the HTTP Request activity.

Am I forced to implement this myself in C# and then create a custom activity or use invoke code?

I cannot imagine that I’m the first one trying to automate WebDav stuff.
Because right now it seems that UiPath is the wrong tool for this.

Best Regards,
T0Bi

Thanks for your feedback.

We will track your request and try to provide dedicated activities in the near future.

Thanks
We’ve create our own activites around Nextcould for now. We’re currently polishing them and will release them to the marketplace in the near future as well.
I’ll update this post once that has happened.
