Package Metadata

Make the package your own with your name, company, website, license, logo, etc.



Looking at the activity package built in this tutorial, you'll see several placeholders where information such as the author, license, icon, etc. should go. Let's personalize the package by replacing those placeholders with real information.

The focus of this section will be on the Design project, which holds all your package info.

What You'll Need


1) Open the Design Project

Open the MyCompany.MyProduct.Activities.Design project by double-clicking it and notice that there are three labeled sections:

  • Package Metadata
  • Package Versions
  • Package Icon

Package Metadata




An SPDX identifier for the license you'd like to use. The default is Apache 2.0.


A short description of your activities that will appear in the UiPath Studio Package Manager.

Authors and Company

The author and owner of the package respectively.


The standard copyright notice.


A list of terms for which users can search to find your package.


A link to your activities' documentation or company homepage.


A link to an image file used as the package icon. Note that the PackageIcon tag is currently unsupported in UiPath Studio.

<!-- Package Metadata -->
    <Description>A package used to perform simple arithmetic operations in UiPath Studio.</Description>
    <Authors>My Company</Authors>
    <Company>My Company</Company>
    <Copyright>@ 2020 My Company</Copyright>
    <PackageTags>UiPath Activit𝗒 MyCompany MyProduct Math Addition Arithmetic</PackageTags>

Package Version

Notice that there are two PackageVersion tags here, which correspond to the two modes in which a package can be built--Debug and Release.

  • Debug is useful during development. The version increments with each build so updates can be made and then immediately tested in UiPath Studio.
  • Release is used to create a final package ready for publication. Once development is through, you may set the desired version here.
<!-- Package Versions -->
<PropertyGroup Condition="'$(Configuration)' == 'Debug'">
    <PackageVersion>0.2.0.$([System.DateTime]::UtcNow.ToString(MMddHmmss)) Version</PackageVersion>
<PropertyGroup Condition="'$(Configuration)' == 'Release'">

Package Icon

Use the PackageIconUrl tag to add an icon to your activity package. In this example, a sample icon is used.

<!-- Package Metadata -->

2) Rebuild the Package

Rebuild the package and import it into UiPath Studio as in the previous section. Open the Package Manager and notice how your package now has a new icon, description, and updated metadata.
