About Automation Projects

An automation project is a sequence of activities that a Robot can execute to automate a series of tasks you perform on your computer. You create and view the automation project in the Designer tab of StudioX.

When you create a project in StudioX, the project files are saved in a folder with the project name to a location of your choice. By default, projects are saved in the %USERPROFILE%\Documents\UiPath directory.

The project folder includes:

  • a Main.xaml file that contains your main workflow.
  • a project.json file that contains information about your automation project.
  • an Excel file, by default Project_Notebook.xlsx, if you did not configure your project to use a different Project Notebook.
  • a .screenshots folder, with informative screenshots, if your project contains UI automation activities.
  • a GlobalHandlerX.xaml file that contains a workflow designed to determine the project’s behavior when an execution error is encountered.
  • a RuntimeExecutionError_Template.html file that contains a template for the error message to display when an execution error is encountered.

Publishing Automation Projects

Publishing an automation project means archiving the workflow and all the other files in the project folder so that it can be sent to Robots and then executed.

If the Robot is connected to Orchestrator, you can publish StudioX projects to Orchestrator and run them from UiPath Assistant. If the Robot is not connected to Orchestrator, you can publish your projects to the Robot Defaults and run them from UiPath Assistant.

The publishing process for StudioX is the same as the one for Studio. For more information, see About Publishing Automation Projects in the Studio guide.
