Create Folder

UiPath.Core.Activities.CreateDirectory

Description

Creates a folder in the specified location. If a folder with the same name already exists at the specified path, the activity does nothing. If a parent folder that does not exist is specified in the path, the entire path is created.

Note: When using this activity in Studio Web projects, local paths are supported only when the project is published and run on a machine that has access to said local paths.

Project compatibility

Cross-platform configuration

  • Folder name - The full path of the directory to be created.

    Note:

    If the automation is run on both Windows and Linux machines, when setting the Folder Name path, it is recommended to use relative paths to match both Windows and Linux environments.

    For example, use myFolder instead of C:\myFolder.
