Using a Git Repository

Introduction

Development in UiPath Process Mining is done collaboratively. To facilitate this, and to keep track of changes, Git is used. A Git server can be used by multiple installations of UiPath Process Mining.
There are two methods in which you can incorporate Git:

  • A local Git repository, managed by UiPath Process Mining.
  • A Git repository you manage yourself. This can either be your own Git server or even a GitHub repository.

Important:

Whichever Git repository you choose to use, you should make sure to only make changes through UiPath Process Mining. Performing Git operations manually (e.g. through the Git command-line tools) may interfere with the proper operation of UiPath Process Mining.

Local Repository

Follow these steps to use a local repository within the UiPath Process Mining installation.

Step

Action

1

Login on the Superadmin page.

2

Go to the Settings tab.

3

In the Repositories text field, use the following value:
[{ "url": "mvlocal:upstream.git" }]

4

Press CTRL+S to save the changes and reload the page to apply them.

Username and Password

Follow these steps to use a Github account using a username and password.

Step

Action

1

Go to the Settings tab.

2

In the Repositories text field, use the following value:

[{"url": "https://github.com/username/repo.git", "user": "username", "pass": "password" }]
Replace the username and password with the actual settings you want to use.

3

Press CTRL+S to save the changes and reload the page to apply them.

Hide Password

In case you do not want passwords clearly visible in the settings, you can also use a public and private key pair. You will need access to the filesystem of the server.
Follow these steps to use public and private key repair.

Step

Action

1

Obtain public and private keys for the Github repository you want to use.

2

Place them in the databases directory in . It is recommended to place them in a subdirectory, for example, respectively for the private and public keys:

ā€¢ <PLATFORMDIR>\databases\keys\keyfile.txt
ā€¢ <PLATFORMDIR>\databases\keys\keyfile.pub.txt

3

Go to the Settings tab.

4

In the Repositories text field, use the following value:

[{"url": "git@github.com:username/repo.git", "privkey_file": "keys/keyfile.txt", "pubkey_file": "keys/keyfile.pub.txt" }]

Replace the URL with the actual URL you want to use. If the location of your keys differs from step 2, change the values accordingly.

5

Press CTRL+S to save the changes and reload the page to apply them.

A Git server is connected to UiPath Process Mining. Your developers can start committing and collaborating.
