Overriding cluster-level storage configuration

Orchestrator supports the following storage configurations:

  • Cluster-level storage configuration;
  • Orchestrator-level storage configuration.

We recommend using the cluster-level configuration paired with external storage. This allows Orchestrator to automatically detect and use the settings, eliminating the need for additional configuration.

Configuring Azure/Amazon S3 storage buckets

To configure the Orchestrator-level storage provider, update the Orchestrator parameters by taking the following steps. For more details, see Configuring the Orchestrator parameters.

  1. In the configuration file, under orchestrator, add the legacy_storage_provider section that contains the storage type and connection string, as shown in the following example:
    "orchestrator": {
      "enabled": true,
      "legacy_object_storage": {
        "type": "Azure",
        "connection_string": "DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=usr;AccountKey=...;"
    }"orchestrator": {
      "enabled": true,
      "legacy_object_storage": {
        "type": "Azure",
        "connection_string": "DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=usr;AccountKey=...;"
  2. Set the desired provider using the type parameter. The possible values are: Azure, AWS, and Minio. A few considerations:
    • The storage.type parameter values are case-sensitive;
    • FileSystem storage configuration is not supported.
  3. Add the connection string for the storage provider using the connection_string parameter. For details on the connection strings format, see the Storage.Location section of UiPath.Orchestrator.dll.config.

Orchestrator web browser access to Amazon and Azure storage buckets could be restricted due to the same-origin policy on the provider side. To successfully access the content of such a bucket, you must configure the respective provider to allow cross-origin requests from Orchestrator. For instructions, see CORP/CSP configuration.

Configuring SMB network share

To use network FileStore, edit the following Orchestrator ArgoCD app parameters:

  • storage.type = smb
  • storage.smb.domain
  • storage.smb.password
  • storage.smb.source
  • storage.smb.username
  • storage.smb.size

Uploading files to storage

When Orchestrator uses cluster-level storage configuration, files can be uploaded to the storage using the Orchestrator Configurator Tool. To do that, use the following command:

./ -s blobstoragefolder./ -s blobstoragefolder
If you use an external storage configuration at the cluster level, you must indicate this by including the --use-external-storage flag.
