Creating Apps

Introduction

A new app is created from a build. A build is a specific version of the UiPath Process Mining.

An app is defined by a revision. A revision is a specific version of all files that together define an app.

  • Application project file
  • Settings file
  • Images
  • Project-related data
  • Extra files (e.g. Help files)
    The main file of your app is stored in your workspace and has the extension .mvp.

Note

This applies to apps, discovery accelerators and connectors.

Creating an app from a Base app

It is possible to create an app from an existing released app, a so-called Base app. This enables you to use the released app as a template for your app to which you can make modifications to your own needs. Moreover, you can upgrade your app and merge any modifications you made when a new version of the Base app is released.

Click on CREATE APP.

This creates an app that is based on the selected Base app* in a new branch and a new workspace. A project file is created and added to your workspace. All changes made in your app, are automatically saved in your workspace. Once a new released version of your Base app** becomes available, you can upgrade your app to the new version and merge the changes you made to the app.
