Assign Tasks


Assigns one or more tasks in the current workflow to a user in Orchestrator by using an email address or a username registered in Orchestrator.



In order to assign tasks correctly, you must make sure you have the needed folder permissions set in Orchestrator. The Folder Permissions for the Robot role in Orchestrator must have the Create action enabled.



  • ContinueOnError - Specifies if the automation should continue even when the activity throws an error. This field only supports Boolean values (True, False). The default value is False. As a result, if the field is blank and an error is thrown, the execution of the project stops. If the value is set to True, the execution of the project continues regardless of any error.



If this activity is included in Try Catch and the value of the ContinueOnError property is True, no error is caught when the project is executed.

  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity.
  • TimeoutMS - Specifies the amount of time (in milliseconds) to wait for the activity to run before an error is thrown. The default value is 30000 milliseconds (30 seconds).


  • Orchestrator Folder Path - The path to the Orchestrator Folder you want to use with this activity. If left empty, the current Orchestrator folder is used. This field supports only strings and String variables.

  • Task Assignment Type - The type of the assignment operation to be performed. By default, the Assign operation is set, and it can be changed to Reassign if you want to assign the same task to a different user.

  • TaskUserAssignments - A list of task identifiers and corresponding user information to which a task is to be assigned/reassigned, stored in a List<TaskUserAssignment> object. This field supports only List<TaskUserAssignment> objects. The object must contain a task identifier and its corresponding user information, such as an email address or a username that is registered in Orchestrator.


  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.


  • FailedTaskAssignments - If any of the user assignment requests fail, a list is created, containing the task identifier, error message, and error code, as well as the email address or username that is registered in Orchestrator, in a List<TaskAssignmentResponse> object in this property field. This field supports only List<TaskAssignmentResponse> objects.

In the Body of the Activity

Some properties can be configured straight from the body of the activity itself, for easier handling, such as:

  • Task User Assignment (Input)
  • Task Assignment Type
  • Failed Task Assignments (Output)
