About Recording

The recording functionality helps you troubleshoot faulted jobs. Whenever a job fails, screenshots illustrating the last moments of the execution are available for download. This functionality is only available for Unattended Robots.

Recording can be configured either at process creation, or it may be enabled and configured afterwards on the Process Settings window.

The following settings are available:

  • Scaling - Enables you to set the scaling of the screenshots in percent. The maximum value is 100. By default, this field is set to 100.
  • Frequency - Enables you to configure the time interval between screenshots, in milliseconds. The minimum value is 250. By default, this field is set to 500.
  • Duration - Enables you to configure the length of time before failure to start the recording, in seconds. The maximum value is 120. By default, this field is set to 40.


Enable and further configure the recording feature using the following parameters:

  • MediaRecording.Enabled- Set it to true to enable the feature. By default, it is set to false, meaning the feature is disabled.
  • Storage.Type, Storage.Location - Configure where execution media files are stored.

Execution Media Permissions

You need View permissions on Execution Media in order to be able to download execution media on the Jobs page.

Keep in mind that the Jobs and Processes pages have permission sets of their own, which need to be granted accordingly when dealing with actions that concern them.

Important: Please note that this functionality does not work with Robots older than v2019.3.

UiPath does not provide a mechanism for automatically freeing used memory. You have to manually delete the execution media files.
