Robot Release Notes
Last updated Jul 12, 2024

2024.10.1

Release date: 1 July 2024

Preserving credentials casing

By default, logging credentials (domain\username) are converted to UPPERCASE, which may cause automations to fail. To preserve the original casing, we've created a new system variable: UIPATH_PRESERVE_CREDENTIALS_CASE. Add it to your environment, and set its value to True.

Errata

Command line arguments for proxy settings

Added 11 July 2024

A new set of command line arguments allow you to set the proxy configuration during installation of your robots. These proxy-related parameters are available for both Studio and Robot installers.

Improvements

New operating system is supported

Robots can now run automations on Microsoft Azure Windows 11, Enterprise Multi-sessions.

.NET 8 support

Attention:

Erratum: Added 12 July 2024

We now support .NET 8 for both Windows and cross-platform automation projects. Projects made using Studio 24.10 are only compatible with Robot 2024.10 or later.

Robot 2024.10 maintains compatibility with projects published from older Studio versions using previous .NET frameworks.

Refer to the compatibility matrix for more details.

Cross-platform and Windows projects are built with the most recent .NET 8 framework. Be aware that projects built with .NET 6 cannot be executed anymore, due to forward incompatibility.

UiPath Assistant

  • UiPath Assistant now displays the name, version, and size of packages being downloaded during project installation.

  • You can now access the UiPath Diagnostic tool from the error dialog box.

  • If you belong to several tenants, you can now switch between them using the new Tenant option in the top-right corner.

  • For enhanced accessibility, we've moved the search bar to the top of the Assistant tabs.

  • In response to user feedback, we've temporarily removed the robot character, with plans to reintroduce it effectively in the future.

  • You can launch Task Mining for Automation Cloud instances.

  • The Picture in Picture feature has been upgraded:

    • It is now called Robot session.

    • A Join button appears on hover to initiate the robot session.

    • The Keep on top toggle was removed, as the Robot session window stays atop other applications.

    • The Leave robot session option asks for confirmation, while notifying that selecting it stops all running automations.

Bug fixes

  • We've fixed the issue where users were unable to log into their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) accounts. This primarily occurred when a previous user did not log off after manually stopping an unattended automation via Orchestrator.

  • When authenticating through client certificates, a bug prevented the robot from reading private keys from card readers. This mainly occurred when multiple card readers were present and at least one had unexpected issues.

  • An issue prevented recording the failure of a job execution.

  • Sessions might have remained in use after a job was completed due to an incorrect status of the executor’s exit. The system now automatically terminates the executor 30 seconds after a job is completed.

  • Creating a session assigned “RDP_xxxxx_xx” as the Client Name for the robot machine. With this update, the machine’s host name is used instead. This allows for reusing RDP licenses rather than allocating a new one for every session.

  • Job recordings were failing during the upload stage.
