Get Files by Object


The Get Files by Object activity uses the the Oracle NetSuite search API to get a list of (Files) attached to a specific (Object).

The activity will retrieve a list of files from a specific NetSuite object as a (DataTable) and the status of the activity (success/failure information) in a ResponseStatus object (ResponseStatus). Both of these outputs can be used as input variables in subsequent activities (e.g., FileId from the FileID column in the (DataTable) in Download File and ResponseStatus in conditional logic).

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 Oracle NetSuite Application Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add the Get Files by Object activity inside the Oracle NetSuite Application Scope activity.
  4. Click the Select button and choose a NetSuite Object from the design time Drop Down List Input.
  5. Create and enter a String and a ObjectId variable for the Input properties.
  6. Create and enter a DataTable and a Files variable for the Output properties.
  7. Create and enter a ResponseStatus and a ResponseStatus variable for the Output properties.

In the Body of the Activity

  • NetSuite Object - The type of NetSuite object. Choose an object from the Drop Down List
  • ObjectId - The Id of the record. This field supports only Strings or String variables.


  • 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.
  • Files - The DataTable to store the list of folders. Enter a DataTable a variable. The variable you create for this property can be used as an input variable in subsequent activities (e.g., Download File, etc.).
  • ResponseStatus - The status of the request (success/failure information). Enter a ResponseStatus variable (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.
