Set up Integration with UiPath Automation Hub

Introduction

Different UiPath products work together to discover, investigate and build automation and communicate process improvements. UiPath Automation Hub is used to turn ideas for automation that are discovered from UiPath Process Mining into real automated implementations. If UiPath Process Mining is set up for integration with UiPath Automation Hub it is possible to submit ideas for process improvements that are subject for automation directly from UiPath Process Mining to UiPath Automation Hub.

This page describes how to set up UiPath Process Mining to enable end-users to send automation ideas directly from the Process Graph to UiPath Automation Hub.

Step 1: Generate a Token from UiPath Automation Hub

📘

Note

When generating a token, make sure that you have selected a user in the User field to generate a User Assigned Token. This user will be assigned as the Submitter when sending the automation idea to UiPath Automation Hub.

Follow the steps below to generate your Token from UiPath Automation Hub.

Step

Action

1

Go to UiPath Automation Hub and log in to your account.

2

Go to Admin Console > Platform Setup > Open API.

3

Click on Generate Token.

The Add Token dialog is displayed.

4

Enter a name for the Token in the Token Name field, for example Process mining.

5

Make sure the App Key field is left blank.

6

In the User field, search for the user that will be used as the service account to connect with UiPath Automation Hub.

7

Click on Save.

The new Token is displayed in the list.

8

Click on the Copy to Clipboard icon to copy the Token. See illustration below.

📘

Note

Do not set up an App Key, so make sure the App Key field is left blank in the Add Token dialog.

For a detailed description on how to generate your Token from Automation Hub refer to the Automation Hub API guide

Step 2: Adapt the Process Mining Server Settings

To enable end users to send automation ideas you must specify the AutomationHubAppToken setting in the Server Settings.

Follow these steps to adapt the Server Settings.

Step

Action

1

Go to the Settings tab of the Superadmin page of your UiPath Process Mining installation.

4

Enter the following line:
,"AutomationHubAppToken": "<token>",
Note: <token> is the token pasted from the Clipboard. See illustration below for an example.

6

Click on SAVE to save the changes to the Server Settings.

📘

Note

For security reasons, you may not want to display the actual token value in the Server Settings. If you have set up Azure Key Vault for password storage, you can store the actual token in Azure Key Vault and refer to it from the Server Settings.

For example: "AutomationHubAppToken": {"credential": "AhAppToken"}

See Use a Credential Store.

Automation Hub on-premises

By default, a connection is set up to Automation Hub in UiPath Automation CloudTM. If you want to connect to an on-premises version of Automation Hub, you must specify the URL to the desired Automation Hub instance in the AutomationHubUrl Server Setting. (See The Settings Tab).

The URL is of the following format:
`https://<fully qualified domain name (fqdn)>///

See the illustration below for an example.

Below is a description of the elements of the URL.

Element

Description

fully qualified domain name (fqdn)

The cluster URL as specified during the installation of UiPath Automation Suite.

Note: for a multi-node installation, this is the
DNS hostname or load balancer url. For a single-node installation, this is the DNS hostname or machine domain name.

<organization>/<tenant>/<service>

Similar to Automation CloudTM the URL contains the name of the organization, the tenant name, and the service.

Login redirect (optional)

An optional (API) redirect.

Step 3: Configure the Process Graph for sending automation ideas

If UiPath Process Mining is set up for integration with UiPath Automation Hub the Process Graph must be configured to enable end-users to send ideas for process improvements that are subject for automation directly from the Process Graph to UiPath Automation Hub.

See Configure the Process Graph for Sending Automation Ideas.
