Managing products

This page explains how you can enable or disable Automation Suite products post-installation.

You can enable and disable products in Automation Suite at any point post-installation.

To do that, you must access and update the cluster_config.json file stored in the /opt/UiPathAutomationSuite folder, and rerun the service installer step.

📘

Note:

You need to perform these steps only from server nodes.

Step 1: Changing the product selection in the configuration file


  1. Navigate to the UiPathAutomationSuite folder and edit cluster_config.json.
cd /opt/UiPathAutomationSuite
nano cluster_config.json #optionally use any favourite editor of your choice.
  1. In the services list, set the enable flags to true or false for the specific services you want to enable or disable. See the following examples for individual products.

📘

Note:

You can manage Action Center and Apps simply by updating the enable flag. Other products might require an additional step to configure the installation. See the following instructions for details.

Enabling or disabling Orchestrator


To enable Orchestrator, set the orchestrator flag to true in the cluster_config.json file.

"orchestrator": {
  "enabled": "true" //Set to "false" to disable Orchestrator
  "sql_connection_str": "" //Optional and only require to override the default database name
}

To disable Orchestrator, set the orchestrator flag to false in the cluster_config.json file.

 

Enabling or disabling Action Center


See the following configuration details for enabling or disabling Action Center in the cluster_config.json file:

"actioncenter": {
  "enabled": "true" //Set to "false" to disable the Action Center
}

 

Enabling or disabling Apps


See the following configuration details for enabling or disabling Apps in the cluster_config.json file:

"apps": {
  "enabled": "true" //Set to "false" to disable the Apps
}

 

Enabling or disabling AI Center


AI Center requires updating the enable flag and an SQL database.

If you previously set a value for sql_connection_string_template_jdbc in cluster_config.json, then the default AI Center database name is AutomationSuite_AICenter.

To change the default database name, you need to update the sql_connection_str inside the AI Center field. This overrides the default database and connection string template set in sql_connection_string_template_jdbc.

  • If AI Center does not require an external Orchestrator, see the following configuration details for enabling or disabling AI Center in cluster_config.json:
"aicenter": {
  "enabled": "true", //Set to "false" to disable the AICenter
  "sql_connection_str": "" //Optional and only required to override the default database name
}
  • If AI Center requires an external Orchestrator, see the following configuration details for enabling or disabling AI Center in cluster_config.json:
"aicenter": {
    "enabled": "true", //Set to "false" to disable the AI Center
    "sql_connection_str": "" //Optional and only required to override the default database name
    "orchestrator_url": "https://orchestrator.example.com", //Specify the Orchestrator URL for AI Center
    "identity_server_url": "https://orchestrator.example.com/identity", //Specify the Identiy URL for AI Center
    "orchestrator_cert_file_path": "/opt/UiPathAutomationSuite/UiPath_Installer/orch.cer", //Specify the path to the Orchestrator certificate
    "identity_cert_file_path": "/opt/UiPathAutomationSuite/UiPath_Installer/orch.cer", //Specify the path to Identity certificate file
    "metering_api_key": "test" //Specify the metering API key
  }

To complete the installation, run the following post-installation command:

./configureUiPathAS.sh aicenter configure --installation-token <identity token>

 

Enabling or disabling Automation Ops


Automation Ops requires updating the enable flag and an SQL database.

If you previously set a value for sql_connection_string_template in cluster_config.json, then the default database name for Automation Ops is AutomationSuite_Platform.

To change the default database name, you need to update the sql_connection_str inside the Automation Ops field. This overrides the default database and connection string template set in sql_connection_string_template.

📘

Note:

Automation Ops shares a database with the core platform, including Orchestrator. If you change the database here, you update the database for the core platform as well.

See the following configuration details for enabling or disabling Automation Ops in cluster_config.json:

"automation_ops": {
  "enabled": "true", //Set to "false" to disable the Automation Ops
  "sql_connection_str": "" //Optional and only require to override the default database name
}

 

Enabling or disabling Data Service

To change the name to something other than the default, you can update the sql_connection_str inside the Task Mining field to override the default database and connection string template set in sql_connection_string_template

Task Mining requires a few additional steps, including the provisioning of a dedicated agent node for AI-specific workloads. Before enabling Task Mining, please refer Task Mining installation section Adding a dedicated agent node for Task Mining

See the following configuration details for enabling or disabling Task Mining in cluster_config.json:

"task_mining": {
  "enabled": "true", //Set to "false" to disable the Task Mining,
  "sql_connection_str": "" //Optional and only require to override the default database name
}

Uninstalling Task Mining - Un-taint a node

To uninstall Task Mining and free a tained node use the steps below:

  1. Check an actual taint using kubectl describe node task-mining_nodename command.
  2. Run the command kubectl taint nodes task-mining_nodename task.mining/cpu=present:NoSchedule-
  3. Check taint has disappeared using kubectl describe node task-mining_nodename command.

 

Enabling or disabling Test Manager

  1. Enable the processmining flag.

  2. Configure the following connection string templates:

    • sql_connection_string_template
    • sql_connection_string_template_jdbc
    • sql_connection_string_template_odbc
    • sql_connection_string_template_sqlalchemy_pyodbc
  3. In multi-node HA-ready production installations, add a separate connection string for the second SQL Server. Note that in single-node evaluation installations, the seconds SQL Server is recommended. For instructions on how to configure the seconds SQL Server, see SQL requirements for Process Mining

"processmining": {
  "enabled": true,
  "sql_connection_str": "" // dotnet connection string
  "sqlalchemy_pyodbc_sql_connection_str": "", 
  "warehouse": {
        "sql_connection_str": "",
        "sqlalchemy_pyodbc_sql_connection_str": ""
     }
}

To disable Process Mining, disable the processmining flag.

 

Enabling or disabling Automation Suite Robots

📘

Before enabling Automation Suite Robots, make sure you meet the requirements.

To enable Automation Suite Robots, take the following steps:

  1. Enable the asrobots flag in the cluster_config.json file. If you want to enable package caching, make sure to properly configure the packagecaching and packagecachefolder flags as well.
{
  "asrobots": {
     "enabled": Boolean,
     "packagecaching": Boolean,
     "packagecachefolder": String
  }
}
ParameterDefault valueDescription
packagecachingtrueWhen set to true, robots use a local cache for package resolution.
packagecachefolder/uipath_asrobots_package_cacheThe disk location on the serverless agent node where the packages are stored.

📘

Package caching optimizes your process runs and allows them to run faster. NuGet packages are fetched from the filesystem instead of being downloaded from the Internet/network. This requires an additional space of minimum 10GB and should be allocated to a folder on the host machine filesystem of the dedicated nodes.

  1. If you use a multi-node HA-ready production setup, you must configure a specialized agent node for Automation Suite Robots. In single-node evaluation mode, an additional node is optional. For instructions, see Adding a dedicated agent node for Automation Suite Robots.

 

To disable Automation Suite Robots, disable the asrobots flag in the cluster_config.json file.

 

Step 2: Running the installer script to update the new product configuration


Once you update the cluster_config.json, run the following command on the installer to update the service configuration.

  • For online installations:
./install-uipath.sh -i cluster_config.json -o output.json -f -s --accept-license-agreement
  • For offline installations:
./install-uipath.sh -i cluster_config.json -o output.json -f -s --install-type offline --accept-license-agreement
