Prioritize Activities by Scope

Using the UiPath.Activities.API package from the Official feed (https://www.myget.org/F/workflow], you can set Studio to show activities that match the custom activity's scope at search.

Therefore, when clicking the plus_iconplus_icon icon inside a custom activity the Command Palette offers suggestions of activities which fit the current scope.

To achieve this, use the IScopedActivitiesService interface, with the following methods:

  • SetScopedActivity - Adds a pair made from a scope activity and an activity that is suitable to that scope.
  • SetScopedActivities - Adds a list of suitable activity types to the specified scope type.

Below is an example of how these methods should be used inside your custom activity:

public void Initialize(object argument)
        {
            try
            {
                if (!(argument is IWorkflowDesignApi api))
                {
                    return;
                }
                if (api.HasFeature(DesignFeatureKeys.ScopedActivities))
                {
                    api.ScopedActivitiesService.SetScopedActivities(typeof(FirstScopeActivity), new List<Type>() { typeof(FirstChildActivity), typeof(SecondChildActivity) });
                    api.ScopedActivitiesService.SetScopedActivity(typeof(SecondScopeActivity), typeof(ThirdChildActivity));
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Trace.TraceError(ex.Message);
            }
        }
