Automation Store Widget

The Automation Store widget provides users easy access to internal ready-to-go automations available in the Automation Store directly from the UiPath® Assistant.


To use the Automation Store widget, the following conditions must be met:

  • The Assistant must be connected to a tenant that has Automation Store enabled and some automations deployed.
  • UiPath® Assistant version 2021.10 or later is installed.
  • A policy is configured in Automation Ops to deploy this widget to your Assistant.
    Note: Automation Store is available only with an enterprise license or under an enterprise trial.
    Important: The Automation Store widget is only available if you are both connected and signed in to an Orchestrator server URL.

Installing an Automation

All automations available in the Automation Store can be found on the UiPath® Assistant homepage, in the Automation Store section. To add an automation to your list of processes, select the automation and click Install.

Important: When the Automation Store Widget is used on macOS, only cross-platform automations can be run. Automations not built for cross-platform fail with the following error when started: The process cannot run on macOS because it is not compatible with this platform.

Sharing an Idea in Automation Hub

If you know of a repetitive task or a process that could be automated, you can easily go to Automation Hub and share your idea directly from the Assistant by clicking the Submit an Idea tile from the Launchpad.

This opens a questionnaire in Automation Hub that enables you to add details about your automation idea and submit it for review.

You can enable or disable the "Automation Hub: Submit an Idea" menu from the Launchpad section in the Preferences menu in the UiPath® Assistant.

Deploying the Automation Store Widget
