Execute Method


The Execute Method activity uses the Box APIs to invoke a specific Box API method.

After executing the function, the activity outputs action specific field values (if applicable) and the status of the request (success/failure information) in a ResponseStatus object (ResponseStatus) that you can use in subsequent activities (e.g., conditional logic).
Important: Starting with Box - Classic version 1.3.3 we switched to a new Box SDK, in order to support the latest Box Cipher suites. This created an issue with the Execute Method activity, which is no longer supported for this version. Please use the older version (v1.2.2) or the newer version (v1.3.4) if you want to use this activity.

How it works

The following steps are 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 the Execute Method activity inside the Box Scope activity.
  4. Click the Configure button inside the Execute Method activity (this opens the Object Wizard).
  5. Select the Method you want to insert and enter values for the fields returned in the Object Wizard.
  6. Create and enter a ResponseStatus variable for the Output property.

In the body of the activity

To enter your Execute Function property values, you must use the Object Wizard by clicking the Configure button.

To learn more about the Object Wizard, see the Business Activity Frameworks page.


  • 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.
  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.
  • ResponseStatus - The status of the request (success/failure information). This field supports only ResponseStatus variables (UiPath.BAF.Models.ResponseStatus). The ResponseStatus object includes three properties that you can use in other activities.
    • Success - Boolean - Specifies whether the API request was successful.
    • ErrorCode - String - The response error if the API request is unsuccessful (Success=False).
    • Message - String - The error message.
