UiPath Studio is a complete solution for application integration, and automating third-party applications, administrative IT tasks and business IT processes. One of the most important notions in Studio is the automation project.
A project is a graphical representation of a business process. It enables you to automate rule-based processes, by giving you full control of the execution order and the relationship between a custom set of steps, also known as activities in UiPath Studio. Each activity consists of a small action, such as clicking a button, reading a file or writing to a log panel.
The main types of supported workflows are:
- Sequences - suitable to linear processes, enabling you to smoothly go from one activity to another, without cluttering your workflow.
- Flowcharts - suitable to a more complex business logic, enabling you to integrate decisions and connect activities in a more diverse manner, through multiple branching logic operators.
- State Machines - suitable for very large workflows; they use a finite number of states in their execution which are triggered by a condition (transition) or activity.
- Global Exception Handler - suitable for determining the workflow behavior when encountering an execution error, and for debugging processes.
Administrator rights are not required to work with UiPath Studio, but only to install it.
