Steps to roll-out TemplateOne 1.0.0

Einleitung

This page describes the necessary steps to roll out a customized version of TemplateOne to end-users. It starts with the input data and covers all the steps that are needed to provide the data in a meaningful way to end-users.

Step 1: Set up the TemplateOne for development
Step 2: Customize TemplateOne
Step 3: Release the customized version of TemplateOne
Step 4: Configure the database connection for TemplateOne
Step 5: Run the transformations and load the data

Step 1: Set up TemplateOne for development

Follow these steps to set up TemplateOne for development.

Step

Action

1

Upload the TemplateOne release (.mvtag) to the Superadmin Releases Tab.

2

Create a new app and use the released TemplateOne app as the base app. See Creating Apps.
Make sure that you select the Git repository you created for the app.

3

Go to the Git repository and create a local checkout of the TemplateOne branch. This enables you to work on the content outside of Process Mining.
It is advised to use a Git GUI client. For example GitKraken or GitHub Desktop.

Release contents

The local checkout contains several files and folders. See the illustration below.

178178

Below is an overview of the main contents of the release.

Folder

Description

.mv

Folder containing the information of the build of the Process Mining software.

.vscode

Workspace settings that are relevant when working in Visual Studio Code.

dashboards

The .mvp file containing the dashboards definitions.

documentation

System and process specific documentation. For example, how to configure the specific SQL connector, an explanation of the process, and applicable design choices.

extractors

Instructions on extracting data and loading it in the database. By default, CData Sync is used to extract data. A load-from-file extraction is included, that enables you to load raw data files that fit with the input of the connector.

resources

Folder containing translation files and dashboard settings.

sample_data

.csv files in the format of extracted data that you can use as a sample dataset in case you do not have a connection with the source system. This sample data fits with the input of the connector so that you can use it to validate your development setup, but also to preview the released app.

scripts

Scripts to automatically extract, transform, and load the data, that you can schedule in your production environment.

transformations

The dbt project containing the SQL statements to transform the data.

.gitignore

Git specific file that lists the contents of the app which should be ignored in version control.

build.txt

Info on the connector and dashboard part that were combined to create this app.

license.txt

Standard license file of the UiPath Process Mining product.

release_notes.md

Release notes of the app.

settings.json

Internal settings for the app. The contents of this file do not have to be updated.

See the illustration below for an overview of the setup.

Step 2: Customize TemplateOne

When TemplateOne is set up for development, you can customize the transformations and edit the dashboards as desired.
See Customizing a SQL connector.
See App and Discovery accelerator development.

Step 3: Release the customized version of TemplateOne

Follow these steps to make the customized version of TemplateOne available to end-users.
These steps must be performed on the Process Mining server.

Step

Action

1

Create a release. See Creating Releases.

A release tag is created in the Git repository. This version is to be installed on the production server.

2

Deploy the release. See Deploying apps and discovery accelerators.

Step 4: Configure the database connection for TemplateOne

To load data from the SQL Server database for use in TemplateOne you must configure the connection to the SQL Server database. You can do this by specifying the Configuration Settings in an external configuration file in .csv format. The TemplateOne.settings.csv file is included in TemplateOne release.

🚧

Wichtig

All SQL Server databases that have a 64-bit version can be accessed using an ODBC connection. The required 64-bit ODBC driver must be installed on the UiPath Process Mining server, and the server must be able to access that specific system.

Follow these steps to configure TemplateOne.

Step

Action

2

Go to the Superadmin Workspaces tab, and locate the Dashboards folder. See the illustration below.

3

Download the TempateOne.settings.csv file and configure the settings as described below.

4

Go to the Superadmin Server data tab and upload the TemplateOne.settings.csv file.

Important: Make sure you use the exact name of the file (TemplateOne.settings.csv).

📘

Hinweis

The TemplateOne.settings.csv file:

  • uses ; as delimiter and as quotation character.
  • must contain two lines: a header line with predetermined field names, and a line containing all values.

Configuration fields

Below is a list of the fields in the TemplateOne.settings.csv that can be used to configure TemplateOne, with a description and expected or example values.

Setting

Description

Driver

The name of the ODBC driver used for the SQL Server database connection.
For example, ODBC Driver 18 for SQL Server.
The driver must be installed on the UiPath Process Mining server, and the server must be able to access that specific system.

Server

The name of the server on which the SQL Server database is installed.

Database

The name of the SQL Server database that is used for TemplateOne.

Schema

The name of the schema in the SQL Server database that is used for TemplateOne.

User

The user account that is used to log in to the SQL Server database.

Use credential store

Define whether the credential store is used.
Possible values are true or false.
If this setting is set to true, the password field must contain the identifier for the credential store password field you are trying to use. See Use a Credential Store.

Password

Password of the account that is used to log in to the SQL Server database, or the password identifier from the credential store. In case the credential store is used, Use credential store should be set to true.

Using a Credential store for password storage

A credential store allows you to use passwords without showing the actual password. For the ODBC connection from the SAP Connector to the SAP database, it is also possible to use a Credential store to store the actual password of the SAP account in a secured way. For more information, see Use a Credential Store](doc:using-the-credential-store).

Step 5: Run the transformations and load the data

Perform the following steps on the production server to run the transformations and load the data into the SQL Server database.

Step

Action

1

Check out the released version of the app on the production server.
It is advised to use a Git GUI client. For example
GitKraken or GitHub Desktop.

2

Configure the dbt project and the profiles. See Running a dbt project.

3

Configure the scripts for CData Sync and dbt.
Running CData Sync with scripts.
Running dbt with scripts.

4

Run the SQL Connector:
• Start Windows PowerShell as admin.
• Go to the scripts/ directory.
• Execute run.ps1.
