While running Bot using Task Scheduler Bot is not able to find the Element when screen is lock


#1

Hi Team,

While running bot using Task Scheduler , Bot is not able to find the screen elements when screen is locked.
Please help this is urgent.


#2

what kind of license do you have?
only Back Office Robots are able to work when the user is not logged in -according to UiPath


#3

Even Front office Robots also work


#4

please check credential manager weather you have provided windows credentials properly or not.Untitled


#5

Not true. I am copying from https://robot.uipath.com/docs/introduction some part about the Attended (FO) Robots
"You cannot start a process from Orchestrator on this type of Robots, and they cannot run under a locked screen"

@dntakoulas

he mentioned triggered using windows task scheduler

Using Windows Scheduler does not mean that you have a BO Robot.
The only thing you achieve with Windows Scheduler is not to have a human starting the process every hour or so. The package exists in the local machine and not in the Orchestrator or another remote environment.
So you have a FO Robot running and you need a BO licenced Robot to be able to run while the computer is locked.

we used to trigger FO bot using scheduler though system is locked


#9

Are you sure that the license is a FO one? It smells like BO license to me


#10

i am sure it’s FO license


#11

OK, this is VERY interesting!

Could you please explain how you achieved this (maybe with UiPath and Windows version info)?
I am asking for the versions because UiPath officially do not support the Windows Scheduler triggering anymore -that is what they say-.

I know that we can instruct the Windows Scheduler to run when the system is locked, but how can you make UiPath identify the UI elements?


#12

follow above screenshot and give your windows credentials.

uiPath version is 2016.2.6274

Hello @pathrudu

using FO in a standalone environment is a license terms violation. FO can be used and triggered only by an agent that shares the same desktop.


#14

I am not sure about License terms. we used to do it in my previous organisation when i was newbie to Uipath

@ddpadil
