Connection Statuses

The following options are available:

  • availableavailable Available - UiPath Robot is not running a process and is free to be used.
  • busybusy Busy - UiPath Robot is running a process. You cannot edit the username, machine, and license type of a busy robot.
  • unresponsiveunresponsive Unresponsive - UiPath Robot and Orchestrator have not communicated in the last two minutes. This value can be configured using the Scalability.Heartbeat.FailureThreshold parameter.
  • disconnecteddisconnected Disconnected - the UiPath Robot service is not running.


Robot start commands are received through SignalR or requested on a heartbeat. The username and password UiPath Robot uses for authentication purposes are transmitted only on heartbeats, enabling it to log in and execute an indicated process.

On the Robot page, Monitoring menu, the connection status is the last known status of UiPath Robot as communicated through the most recent heartbeat. Hovering over this field displays the date and time of the last heartbeat. This is only applicable to attended robots or unattended robots used in attended mode. A modern robot is displayed as connected only if the UiPath Robot tray or Studio is opened on the host machine.

The status and health of unattended runtimes can be checked in the Monitoring menu > Machines
