Q1. What is UiPath?
Ans: Converting tiresome tasks to total UI automation , UiPath Studio is a complete software solution that allow you to carry out repeated tasks of your back office, simple and speedy.
Q2. What is UiPath Automation?
Ans: Uipath is the vendor for the outstanding automation process of robotics. It indeed helps in providing a software platform which will help in an organization like automate business. The main objective of the software robot is to help in the manipulation of the application’s layer of presentation like the way any human will do.
Q3. Difference between UiPath vs Selenium?
Ans: Selenium has been designed for testing the web applications or website. A selenium can’t collaborate with a huge number of applications. It is unable to use one’s application’s output and use them as a new input for another application and is not compatible with the virtual environments like the Citrix.
Whereas Uipath mostly designs the software process that helps in automation. It is a kind of RPA tool which will help in performing activities like the human.
Q4. What are the differences between Blue Prism and UiPath?
Ans: Both come across as good tools and both have their own softwares. UI and BP, both have graphic process designers for developing the solutions.

Q5. What Are Properties In Uipath?
Ans: In uipath, you can use a lot of activities which is used for automating the apps of the web apps which you can see in the activity panel under the category of UI automation. The common properties of these activities are Continue On Error, Delay After, Delay Before, TimeoutMS, WaitForReady, and target.
Q6. What Is Process Studio?
Ans: A Blue Prism Process is created as a diagram that looks like a business flow diagram. Processes are created in a area of Blue Prism named Process Studio which looks similar to other process modelling applications and uses standard flow diagram symbols and notation.
Q7. What Is Value And Scope Of Data Types In Uipath?
Ans: Variable is used for storing data. You can also change the value of the variable. When some data is stored within some variable then that value can be of many types. In uipath, there is a huge number of data types starting from text number, generic value, time, date and data tables.
Q8. What Are Ui Activities Properties In Uipath?
Ans: There are different types of activities which are used in the web pages or in automating apps and you can easily find them in the section of activities panel categorized under UI automation. These UI activities have many properties in common.
ContinueOnError: Even when the activity will show error still, the automation will continue its work. This field works in the boolean values. False is the default value in here. The project won't show any error if the activity on this field is set to true inside the try catch.
Delay After: It helps in pausing the activity.
Delay Before: It helps to pause before any activity.
TimeoutMS: It helps in finding the element before the error is shown.
WaitForReady: It will wait until the target is ready and before you perform the activity.
Target: It helps in identifying the element in UI before the activity starts.
Q9. Explain About Recording In Uipath Studio?
Ans: Uipath has 4 recordings. They are Basic, desktop, web, and Citrix.
Basic: It is used for the generation of the full selector for every activity but has no container. Hence the automation is much slower but is good for the single activities.
Desktop: It is great for multiple actions and desktop apps. It is much faster than the basic and uses the container where the activities will be enclosed and will also have partial selector.
Web: It is used for recording in the web pages and for browsing. It also generates the container.
Citrix: It is used for recording of virtualized environments, permits texts, images and the keyboard automation.
Q10. What is Blue Prism’s Robotic Automation?
Ans: Robotic Automation implies process automation where computer software drives existing enterprise application software in the same way that a user does. Automation is a gadget or stage that operates other application software through the existing application UI.
Q11. What Are Flowchart Activities In Uipath?
Ans: The flowchart is generally used for various settings. It helps in large jobs as well as in small projects and you can also use them in different projects. Flowcharts help in presenting multiple branching of logical operators, helps in building complex business and for connecting the activities in many ways.
Q12. What Is Flow Switch In Uipath?
Ans: Flow switch and flow decision are the same things but it has one difference and that is in the flow switch each branch of the flow switch is known as flow step and is not just restricted to true or false branch.
Q13. What Are Sequence Activities In Uipath?
Ans: The sequence is actually the small type of projects which are suitable mainly for linear processes and will enable you to switch from one activity to the another seamlessly. It actually acts as a single activity block. You can reuse them for many times.
Q14. What support do I need from Blue Prism Professional Services?
Ans: It genuinely depends on the capacities you already have in house and the way you wish to work. Blue Prism can give a full extent of services from basic training, reinforcing and mentoring with a view to quickly get your team independently delivering ongoing automations, right through to a full turnkey package, where we will take responsibility for delivering business benefit within agreed service levels.
Q15. Is Robotic Automation like screen scraping or macros?
Ans: No, managerial Robotic Automation is a generation on ahead from old technologies like screen scratching or macros.
Robots are universal application orchestrators – any application that can be used by a man can be used by a present day robot, whether mainframe, bespoke application, legacy, web service enabled or even a close 3rd party API hosted service.
Robots assemble procedural knowledge, which after some time, joins a shared library that can re-used by some other robot or device.
Applications are “read” by the robot, either through submitted APIs where they exist, through the OS before application appear, or through the screen with respect to the native application. In this last case, the modern robot “reads” an application screen in context and in the same way a user does. As part of the robot training it is shown how to read the application’s display much like a user.
Q16. What Is Branching In Uipath Rpa?
Ans: When it comes to branching in uipath there comes a “condition”. This condition is used when an activity is having more than one solution occurs after a certain condition. Condition statement will help the program to determine what behavior should be shown when any condition will be selected.
Q17. What Is The Assign Activity In Uipath?
Ans: We need the assign activity because it helps in assigning values to the variables. Mostly they are used when there is a need for incrementing the variable's value when there is a loop. You can add the value and then store them to another variable or it helps in assigning the value to some array.
Q18. What Is The Delay Activity In Uipath?
Ans: Uipath uses the delay activity for making you pause or stop the automation for some period. This is mainly used in projects where you need good timing like waiting and then start of some particular applications or waiting for information processing which you can use in the different activity.
Q19. What Is The Do While Activity In Uipath?
Ans: Do while helps in enabling the programme to execute the specific part of an automation when the condition will be true. If the condition is not true then the loop won't be executed. This activity is used for step through the element present in the array or it also helps in executing any particular activity for many times. You can use counters for keeping track of the increment.
Q20. What Is The If Activity In Uipath?
Ans: If activity is used when you will deal with two conditions where the first statement will get executed if the condition is true while the second one will get executed when the statement will be false. When the variable will have values then the if statement is basically used.
Q21. What Is The Switch Activity In Uipath?
Ans: The switch activity helps you to choose one out of the others based on the specified values of the expressions. Switch activity uses integer argument as default but you can easily change it by going to the properties panel and selecting the required Type Argument list. It helps in categorizing the data depending on the case number.
Q22. What Is The While Activity In Uipath?
Ans: This activity helps in processing a specific activity repeatedly when a particular condition is true. The primary difference between while and do while is that in the former one the condition will be evaluated first and then the loop will be executed.
