To find the correct value of the Action_Center_URL from the env.json file:

  1. Navigate to the Installation Folder.
  2. Go to the ActionCenter/Actions/environments/env.json file path.
  3. From the PostLogoutRedirectUri key, retrieve the correct Action_Center_URL.

The format for the PostLogoutRedirectUri is "Action Center URL"/actions. For example, if the PostLogoutRedirectUri is, then the corresponding Action Center URL is

If the correct value of the Action_Center_URL is not provided before starting the upgrade process, then loading the Action Center portal will fail after upgrading, and you will need to manually update the env.json file. For step-by-step instructions on how to update the env.json file, check the last row from Action Center installation issues.

  1. Run the Windows Installer.
  2. Select the I accept the terms in the License Agreement checkbox to agree to the terms in the agreement, then click Next. The Action Center IIS Settings selection window is displayed.

  3. Change the IIS Settings as desired:
    • Installation Path - Change the default path as desired. Don't use a user-profile path (C:\Users) because the IIS AppPool\<Apppoolname> doesn’t have adequate permissions on it. You need Readand Writepermissions on the installation directory.
    • Host Name - Auto-populated with the hostname. For a server under a network domain, the discoverable machine name is read from the HKM registry key. If the installer does not find a registry value, the local hostname is displayed.
    • Port - An unused port on the server. Use a different port than Orchestrator, if installed on the same server.
    • SSL Certificate - The Subject or Thumbprint of the SSL certificate you want to secure connections with. By default, this is filled in with the full computer name. See Action Center Prerequisites for Installation for details about the SSL certificate you can use.
  4. Click Next. The Action Center Application Pool Settings window is displayed.

  5. Configure the editable options as desired:
    • Identity - enables you to choose the identity under which the UiPath Action Center website runs. The following options are available:

      • Application Pool Identity - runs the Action Center website under the default identity of the application pool.
      • Specific User - runs the Action Center website under an existing Windows or Domain identity. Selecting this option displays two fields, Username and Password, which enable you to specify the identity under which to run.

        For more information on Application Pool Identities, please see Microsoft's official documentation.

    • Click Next. The Action Center UiPath Identity Server window is displayed.

  6. Configure the editable options as desired:
    • Orchestrator URL - Specify port information in the URL only if it is not the default port (443 or 80).
    • Identity URL - Specify the Identity Server URL. Automatically populated with the Orchestrator URL plus the suffix /identity.
    • Action Center URL - Automatically populated based on hostname and port information provided. If the Action Center application is configured behind a reverse proxy or load balancer, provide the user-facing URL.
    • Identity Installation Token - The access token taken from the Identity Management Portal. See Accessing Identity Management Portal for details on how to access it.
  7. Click Next. The installation process starts. You can now use Action Center.
