Delete File

UiPath.Box.Activities.File.DeleteFile

The Delete File activity uses the Box Delete file API to delete a specified file (File Id).

After deleting the file, the activity outputs a Boolean value to report the success of the deletion (IsSuccessful).

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example of how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Box Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add an activity or run an external process that outputs a File.Id value (e.g., Upload File, Search for Content, etc.).
  4. Add the Delete File activity inside the Box Scope activity.
  5. Enter a value for the Input property.
  6. Create and enter a Boolean variable for the Output property.
    • Your input property values are sent in the Delete file API operation request.
    • The operation returns the Boolean value to your output property variable.


Properties

Common
  • ContinueOnError - Specifies if you want the activity to continue running when an error is thrown. This field supports only Boolean values.
  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity. This field supports only Strings or String variables.
Input
  • File ID - The ID of the file that you want to delete. This field supports only Strings or String variables. To get the File ID value, add an activity or run an external process that outputs a File.Id object (e.g., Upload File, Search for Content, etc.).
Misc
  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.
Output
  • IsSuccessful - A Boolean value that reports the success of the deletion. The Boolean values are:
    • True - file was deleted.
    • False - file was not deleted.
