Connecting to Orchestrator

There are two ways of connecting the Robot and UiPath Assistant to Orchestrator:




When using the UiPath Assistant and Robot on MacOS, local feeds are not supported. Automations are retrieved from Orchestrator and only the cross-platform ones are available. The same applies for the Marketplace Widget when used in the Assistant on MacOS.

Chrome Extension

When run on MacOS, processes that use web automations in browsers require the Google Chrome Extension to work.
When the Assistant is launched for the first time, if the extension is not detected, a prompt is displayed on the Assistant home page to install it. Additionally, you can add the extension from the UiPath extensions section of the Preferences menu in the Assistant.
Once the installation is complete, the browser must be restarted and the extension enabled manually.


Testing Processes on MacOS

When designing a process for MacOS in Studio, the testing is done using Remote Debugging and connecting to the specific MacOS machine.
