  • Title - The title of the action you want to create. This field supports strings and String variables only.
  • Priority - Input the priority level of the action as an argument of type UiPath.Persistence.Activities.Model.Task.TaskPriority. Set the Default value of the argument using the TaskPriority Enum. The following options are available: TaskPriority.Low, TaskPriority.Medium, TaskPriority.High, TaskPriority.Critical.
  • Apps - Choose the Action App you've created within the Apps instance of your organization and tenant, while using Studio.

    Once you choose an Action app, the fields from both the app and action definition will become accessible as properties in the activity. Create variables and input values for each field accordingly.

    If you update the Action App or the corresponding action definition, then a Refresh property, next to the Action Definition Name field appears, that you can use to update the activity with the latest changes.

Properties panel


  • 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.
  • TaskCatalog - An optional business classification of task items. This field supports only strings and String variables.
    Important: Make sure the action catalog exists prior to the action creation. Otherwise, action creation fails with the following error message: "No task catalog exists with name [action_catalog_name] Error code: 2451."
  • Labels - The robot adds the inputted labels to the action, allowing future filtering. This field support string values only and has naming restrictions.
    Note: To allow automatic actions labeling through Persistence activities, the robot account executing the workflow needs View, Create, and Delete permissions on Tags.


  • 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).


  • TaskObject(Output) - The task object that is returned from Orchestrator as a UserActionData object after the action is created. This object can be passed to the Wait for App Task and Resume activity in order to suspend the execution of the workflow until the action is completed.
