Hi, I am a backend developer (Java/Moqui) and i was tasked to develop the bots at my company.As a developer i find it nonsensical to use the online tool to do any development for the bots.You lose too much. Git diff is one of the things i miss.Also, a lot of inconveniences pop up, Any undo (ctrl+z) is done silently. I can’t see where it is happening in the code or if it even happened. Same goes for accidental drag-and-drops.Most of all, I hate that all variables are global, lack of methods (yes, i know that bots are supposed to be the methods). The cherry on top is that i can’t write complex expressions in a single line. no lambdas…. Drag and drop assignments. The fact that my work is lost if i let the session timeout for any reason.In all it is a bad experience for me.My question is: Is there a way to write bots directly in an IDE?A VSCode plugin for example….And why is it not exposed in the first place. The result of the bot clearly has to be compiled/interpreted into intermediary la
In this Automation Anywhere tutorial, we'll learn how to download Automation 360 bots from Bot Store. Bot Store is directly integrated with the Automation 360 Control Room to allow you to easily publish bots to Bot Store from within the Control Room.
As a developer, I don’t like black boxes that much.I tried to understand how bot “actions” work on my own, but the documentation is lacking any depth.The one i am interested the most is Recorder Capture.Is there a way to know how they work? In depth docs ,or, if the source code is open, a link to the repo / wiki
We are using oracle flexcube and we want to automate some stuff.The way flexcube works is by opening a single browser tab and INSIDE it open multiple virtual windows. Each window is its own HTML component. So you have:<html> .... <html>component 1</html> ..... <html>component 2</html> .....</html>please note that the html tag is in under a “document”the “windows” are dragable and can overlap (z-axis overlap i guess).Flexcube automatically opens the “windows” with a prefixed size and position, so most of the time, the window headers titles and minimize/close buttons overlap perfectly.At runtime, when Record Capture tries to click a button, it looks in the first inner <html> tag even if the focus (max z-axis available index) is on another window, which is fine since I am using HTML, but it is unintuitive for other users. It always ends up finding the wrong button.I have tried removing DOMxPath, and path. I also tried adding OuterHT
I’m trying to use the SOAP web services with a URL. When I connect to the URL with ‘SOAP UI’ (External software), there are no errors. But when I try to connect to the same URL via action in A360, I get the below error message - I’ve just created a task bot and I’m trying to run it.Also where can I get the logs for this? Since I’m not running it via a bot runner.
Hi All, Long story short, bot should upload and processes a file in an application and it takes around 30-60 mins to generate an output file. I cannot let other jobs to wait until it generates an output file and get it placed in BUs folder post processing. Can you please suggest how I could defer bot to check if file exists after sometime, instead of wait or delay action? Thanks
Hi, Is there a way using Web Automation package to switch to a different iFrame within the page? As there is no way to target an element in that iFrame using Xpath. I tried also using capture, but unfortunately had no luck combining web automation package with capture package just doesn’t want to capture that specific elements. Thanks
My bot is not working correctly when running in unattended mode on a Virtual Machine, what are some possible fixes?
My bot does not work correctly when running on unattended mode on a Virtual Machine. When I run it on my development device in unattended mode and I watch it. everything works perfectly. But when I try to run the bot on a Virtual Machine in unattended mode it does not work correctly at all. please let me know of any possible fixes for this that you can think of. Thanks in advance!
A360 Recorder Capture - Get table action throwing error as 'COM object method returns error code: 0x80020009; DISP_E_EXCEPTION (Exception occurred.)'
Hi All,I have migrated one of existing V11.3 bot to A360 version. In the A360 bot there is a logic to export SAP window table to CSV which is managed by Recorder : Capture → Get table action. When table does not contain any data then it is showing error as COM object method returns error code: 0x80020009; DISP_E_EXCEPTION (Exception occurred.)I am using Bot version - 21.250I want to use same commands so that there is minimum change in the migrated botBelow are the screenshots of V11 and A360 commands for reference
Hey community,Recently I came across a challenge known as : The Automation Challenge : (https://www.theautomationchallenge.com/ V2), a simple looking form where data is entered from an excel file onto the portal. Around 50 rows of data we have to enter.But the catch over here is when you click on start the UI of the page changes. That’s not all, for every row we submit the UI changes and in between we will get a pop-up of I am not a robot, where we have to check the box. Now you guys will think that we can create the DOMX path or get the source code and enter the data, it won’t help, there is a JS Code which you get when you get the source code, no single HTML element.😓Has anyone ever attempted the above challenge, if yes let’s discuss, if not do try out and let’s have a chat on it.🤓🤖
Hello !I am trying to extract the page source code by using action, “Get Source Code” of package Browser. But when I ran the BOT got an error of : The page that I am trying to extract the code is : https://www.theautomationchallenge.com/
Hi All,Need some clarification in setting up the Document Automation(DA) .We are trying to implement DA in our organisation and need some clarifications on below issues.we have succesfully created and trained our learning instance ,now we are trying to deploy into production . we have built a extraction scheduler bot(to upload the files to learning instance) as per AA documentation and trying to complete the set up. So can anyone please shed some thoughts on this?Do we need to schedule extraction and download bots separately onto different bot runners? i dont see any information on how to schedule these two bots(extraction and download) . or are these bots automatically run when extraction scheduler is deployed?Official AA documentation
When working on a bot I have been getting duplicate background processes for multiple Auto Anywhere processes. The duplicate Java Launcher causes horrid lag in excel which I can fix by force stopping down to one instance of the Java Launcher. Any idea what could be causing this? I am fairly new to AA and recently got a new computer and I don’t remember the lag happening before that. My hunch is it is something to do with having multiple devices. Even though it is only actively connected to the local device, that is the only thing I can think of as being different since the issue is now reproducible on the old computer.
안녕하세요. 저는 A360으로 개발 시작한지 3개월 차입니다. 다른 소스 참고를 하고 싶은데 ‘전체 검색’ 기능이 없어서 매우 불편합니다.이 때문에 개발자마다 소스 개발 형식도 중구난방이 되는 것 같습니다. 잘 모르는 부분 찾아보려 해도 뭐가 어디에 있는지 모르기 때문에 개발 생산성이 매우 낮습니다. 전체 소스에서 검색하는 기능이 없는 것으로 보이는데요.이클립스, VS Code 등등에는 다 있는 기본 기능인데 A360에서는 없는 것으로 보입니다. 혹시 이런 기능이 있다면 말씀 부탁 드리고요.없다면 기능 추가 가능한지 문의 드립니다. 감사합니다.
Hi, I am using Queue to manage the workload in my bot. The Bot was getting stuck Unexpectedly midway, while checking for a web control and not moving to the next step even after many hours(Until manually stopped by someone). Also I am unable to stop the bot from control room or even by logging to the Bot runner machine.Please let me know if you have any solutions for the below issues.1- Bot is stuck in-between and not moving to the next command or getting failed.2- How to Stop a bot which is running with Queue Thank you.
http://private.company.com:1234/vertex-remote-services/oseriestm/filetransfer90?wsdlUsing a verified URI (replaced domain info for security reasons), I entered it into the SOAP Web Service v3.17.0. Then I click Build SOAP request and receive an Unable to parse wsdl error message. I import this URI into SOAPUI and it perfectly parses it. And I can execute it from SOAPUI to get the successful response. I entered all the necessary parameters in the SOAP Web Service to see if it was simply an issue with the Build SOAP request feature, and it still errors. Here’s the error when running the bot.An unexpected error occurred.org.ow2.easywsdl.schema.api.SchemaException: SchemaException: the imported document cannot be import at: http://www.w3.org/2005/05/xmlmime: org.ow2.easywsdl.schema.api.SchemaException: SchemaException: Can not get schema: : javax.xml.bind.UnmarshalException 2 other URI for the same webservice work just fine in the same bot. Same server/domain/port info. Only this URI is
Hi, My CR is disconnected in all machines and showing "Disconnected". When I try to ran the bot throwing error "Device is not ready for deployment". Is there any update going on AA360 Today? Please provide the solution ASAP. Thanks.
