General Best Practices

This lesson is part of the course UiPath Automation Coding Standards . Use navigation on the left.
  1. In the process flow, make sure you close the target applications (browsers, apps) after the Robots interact with them. If left open, they will use the machine resources and may interfere with the other steps of automation.
  2. Before publishing the project, take a final look through the workflows and do some cleanup:remove unreferenced variables, delete temporary Write Line outputs, delete disabled code, make sure the naming is meaningful and unique, remove unnecessary containers (Right-click >Remove sequence).
  3. The project name is also important – this is how the process will be seen on Orchestrator, so it should be in line with your internal naming rules. By default, the project ID is the initial project name, but you can modify it from the project.json file.
  4. The description of the project is also important (it is visible in Orchestrator) – it might help you differentiate easier between processes – so choose a meaningful description as well.

Source Control

In order to easily manage project versioning and sharing the work with more developers, we will have to use a Version Control System. UiPath Studio is directly integrated with Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server (TFS) & Apache Subversion (SVN) – a tutorial explaining the connection steps and functionalities can be accessed here.

  • All You Need To Know About Robotic Process Automation

    by Ajay Kumar Konda

    Robotic Process Automation(RPA) is a kind of automation where a bot performs human’s task in completing rules based jobs. Robotic Process Automation refers to a style of automation where a machine, or computer, mimics a human’s action in completing rules-based tasks. In traditional workflow automation tools, a software developer produces a list of actions to automate a task and interface to […]
