Managing Processes

Generating Forms to Provide Inputs to a Queue


  1. Create a queue in Orchestrator.
  2. Create a consumer automation project that processes items from the queue and passes data into third-party systems as imposed by the specific business scenario.
  3. Create a queue trigger that launches the consumer process whenever a new item is added to that queue.

The queue becomes available on the Processes page in the Action Center website.for a user with the appropriate access rights to the folder in which the queue resides. That means you need to assign the user a role at the folder level in Orchestrator with the following permissions:

  • View on Queues
  • View, Edit, Delete on Transactions

Generating Forms to Provide Inputs to a Job


  1. Create a workflow with input arguments in the main .xaml file of the automation project and publish it to Orchestrator.
  2. Deploy a process from the above package, and provide default values for the input parameters if any.

The process becomes available on the Processes page in the Action Center website for a user with the appropriate access rights to the folder in which the process resides. That means you need to assign the user a role at the folder level with the following permissions:

  • View on Processes
  • View, Edit, Delete on Jobs

Triggering Unattended Processes Through File Upload


RPA developers configure the particularities of the upload (e.g., single or multi-file upload, minimum and maximum allowed file size) at design time in Studio, using the Form Designer incorporated in the Create Form Task activity (UiPath.Persistence.Activities activity package v1.1.8+).

To trigger unattended processes with file upload do the following:

  1. Navigate to Processes on the left-hand menu.
  2. Run a process which allows for file upload, by hovering over the corresponding tile and clicking Run Process
  3. The form is displayed as a right-hand pane.
  4. Fill in the fields and attach the file.
  5. Click Submit

Business User Experience


  1. Log in to the Action Center website.
  2. Navigate to Processes.
  3. Launch a process by clicking Run. If the process has input parameters, a form is displayed.
  4. Fill in the values for the input parameters and click Submit.
  5. Click Refresh to view the latest status of a transaction.
  6. The workflow is suspended and an action is generated.
  7. After the completes the action, the workflow resumes.
