Update regarding rate limits and the removal of large data fields

In mid-December of last year, we announced a change that we had initially intended to apply at the end of February. You can read about it in Announcing new rate limits.

We have since heard your feedback and realized that this approach might be too abrupt, not allowing you enough time to assess your own processes and adapt to this amendment. As such, we have made the decision to delay the enforcement of these changes as follows:

  • Rate limits will be applied for everyone starting with July of this year. For details, check out the Rate limits section.

  • Large data fields will be removed for Community and Canary tenants starting with February 19th, and in July of this year for Enterprise tenants. For details, check out the Removal of large data fields section.

In the meantime, we recommend that you also read through the following material:

Displaying job details and logs as a side panel

Note: Erratum - added February 5, 2024

The side panel also includes the Triggers tab, which displays the triggers required for the resumption of a suspended job.

The details and logs of a job are now displayed in their very own side panel, adjacent to the jobs list. This provides you with a host of benefits which include:

  • More real estate for all the information you might be interested in. The side panel can also be expanded to a full-sized window, granting access to an even larger view for all your data.
  • All the general details of the job handy for any side-by-side checks you may need.
  • Easier navigation between job details, by simply clicking through the list, anywhere on the respective rows, instead of closing and reopening a window.

Permission changes for viewing process folders

In December 2023, we launched an option to see the folders where the processes associated to a certain package were included. At the time, only folders that you had both view and edit access to were listed in the Processes of package window. We have now removed the need to have edit access, which means that all folders that you have view access to are listed. The edit option is, however, only enabled for folders that you also have edit access to.

Removal of reports endpoints

Reports endpoints available for audit logs, robot logs, and queue definitions are now removed. As such, we advise against using the following:

  • GET/odata/AuditLogs/UiPath.Server.Configuration.OData.Reports

  • GET//odata/RobotLogs/UiPath.Server.Configuration.OData.Reports

  • GET/odata/QueueDefinitions({key})/UiPathODataSvc.Reports

If you would like to retrieve such reports, we recommend these steps:

  1. Initiate an export by calling the appropriate endpoint:

    • For audit logs: POST/odata/AuditLogs/UiPath.Server.Configuration.OData.Export
    • For robot logs: POST/odata/RobotLogs/UiPath.Server.Configuration.OData.Export
    • For queue definitions: POST/odata/QueueDefinitions({key})/UiPathODataSvc.Export
    • This operation returns an ID that is necessary for the next two steps.
  2. Get the status of the report by calling the GET/odata/Exports({key}) endpoint and appending the ID returned at step 1 to it.
  3. Once the status is Completed, get a download link for retrieving the exported archive, by calling the GET/odata/Exports({key})/UiPath.Server.Configuration.OData.GetDownloadLink endpoint and appending the ID returned at step 1 to it.

Introducing historical monitoring

The Machines, Processes, and Queues sections featured in the Monitoring page, at both the folder and the tenant level, are now split up in two tabs:

  • Real time (Orchestrator) provides the information that you will already be used to seeing. The content on this tab continues to be refreshed instantly.

  • Historical (Insights) includes charts based on data available in Insights, that can reach up to two years back. These charts are synchronized with Orchestrator with a 20-minute cadence.

The Historical (Insights) tab provides a series of features that we are certain will be very useful to you. These include:

  • Various filtering options based on the component.

  • The option to download the entire dashboard or each tile in the format of your choice.

  • The ability to schedule the delivery of a report to your email.

  • The click-to-filter option per dashboard component.
    This is an example of the Historical (Insights) tab for processes, with a look at some of the available options: docs image

Please be aware that the Historical (Insights) tab is only available if you have Insights enabled.

Bug fixes

  • The View sessions option has been removed from the More Actions menu for Serverless machines on the Machines page.

  • The Cloud - Serverless Testing option has been removed from the Machines dropdown for unattended sessions on the Monitoring page.

When can I see these changes?

The date when a change is first announced in the release notes is the date when it first becomes available.

If you don't see the change yet, you can expect to see it soon, after we roll out changes to all the regions.

Deprecation timeline

We recommend that you regularly check the deprecation timeline for any updates regarding features that will be deprecated and removed.
