UiPath Orchestrator Guide

Field Descriptions for the Tenant Settings Page

The General Tab


It is recommended that the tenant and the Robots have the same time zone.


Time Zone

The time zone of the tenant. By default, this field is set to UTC.
The timezone list depends on the machine. To ensure that all the instances under a multi-node Orchestrator installation have the same timezone list, they must use the same operating system version.

Connection String (only if enabled)

The connection string which connects Robots to Orchestrator. For more information, see how to Connect Robots to Orchestrator. This field is displayed if the WindowsAuth.Enabled parameter is set to true, in the web.config file. For more information, read about Connecting Robots to Orchestrator Using the Connection String

The Deployment Tab

Automation packages can either be delivered through Secure Deployment or providing the Deployment URL and API Key, not both.


Secure Deployment

Ensures that your automation packages are downloaded through a secure NuGet feed. The setting is loaded only when the Robot Service connects to the server. After this option is changed you need to restart the UiRobotSvc service.

Deployment URL

The URL of a web app that uses the NuGet protocol (NuGet, MyGet), that enables you to store and maintain your automation packages. This feed is provided by default. When this field is empty, it means that the local feed is used.


The license key of your NuGet account. This key is provided by default.


Robots with versions less than 18.2 do not support the Secure Deployment setting.


If you are a Community Edition Orchestrator user, you also need to create your own feed in MyGet, and provide the URL feed and its API key on the Deployment tab.
If you use a private MyGet feed, please use the URL provided under Your pre-authenticated V2 URL (no basic authentication). Please note that this is not a free service from MyGet.

The Mail Tab

Should change password on first login

When selected, users that log in to Orchestrator for the first time are required to change their password.


Editing the settings in the Password Complexity tab does not affect existing passwords.

Account Lockout



If checked, locks the account for a specific amount of seconds after a specific amount of failed login attempts. This also applies to the password change feature.

Account Lockout Seconds

The amount of seconds a user needs to wait before attempting to log in again after exceeding the Max Access Attempts. The default value is 5 minutes.

Max Access Attempts

The amount of login attempts a user can make before the account is locked. The default value is 10 attempts. You can set a value between 2 and 10.

Attended Robot

  • Run Disconnected Hours - Enables you to specify the number of hours an Attended Robot can run offline, without checking for its license in Orchestrator. By default, it is set to 0. The maximum accepted value is 168 hours. This setting is applied when you first connect the Robot to Orchestrator, or after the UiPath Robot service is restarted. If you are running the Community version, you need to restart the tray for the change to take effect. Logs are cached locally while the Robot is offline, and are sent to Orchestrator when it reconnects.


Please note that if you restart the UiPath Robot service or the machine the Robot is running on while in an offline environment, the license is lost.
