Using App Studio

UiPath Apps is available on the left-hand sidebar of the UiPath Portal.

The Apps home page is divided into two tabs, Build and Run, which split the existing applications as follows:

  • On the Build tab you can create new apps and search among apps that you can edit.
    To edit an app, you need to be the owner or the co-author of that app.


  • On the Run tab you can run and search among:

    • Apps that were deployed to Orchestrator folders where you have View permissions on Apps.

      Note:

      To run published apps, you need to deploy them to an Orchestrator folder.

    • Existing published apps that do not belong to any tenant (that is, apps that were published before the introduction of the Apps in folders feature)
Note:

The apps displayed in the Run tab are specific to the selected tenant.

Existing published apps that were shared with users or within a tenant can still be accessed by the users with the proper roles. After republishing the app to a tenant, the folder-level permissions take precedence.

  • Right Click > Set as Start Page
  • Or click and drag the page to reorder it

To change the style of a control:

  2. Select the Style tab in the properties panel
  3. Change individual styling properties to change the look and feel of your app

Data Binding

To bind your controls to process inputs or outputs, use their Value Binding field. For more details, see Binding Process Inputs/Outputs Arguments.



Events and Logic

Events and Rules control the end-user experience inside of your app. The events available for a control are determined by that control's type. For example, Pages have a 'Loaded' event, while a textbox has a 'Value Changed' event.

To customize interactions within your app:

  1. Select the control that you would like to add an event to.
  2. Click the Events tab on the properties pane.
  3. Choose an event you'd like to customize and click Create Rule.
  4. Start typing or select a rule from the available list.

For more, see Events and Rules.



Preview and Publish

You can preview your app at any time during development by clicking the Preview button in the header. Check out the rest of the documentation to learn more about Preview and Publishing.

Deploying apps in Orchestrator folders

After you publish the app, you need to deploy it to an Orchestrator folder.

Apps in folders and UiPath Assistant

After the introduction of the Apps in folders feature, publishing an app does not display it in UiPath Assistant. To see newly published apps, first you need to deploy them in an Orchestrator folder. The minimum Assistant version that supports displaying and running deployed apps is 2023.4.4.

Apps published before the introduction of the Apps in folders feature continue to show up in all UiPath Assistant versions.

The following table summarize the compatibility between UiPath Apps cloud version and UiPath Assistant:
