What does the UiPath platform consist of?
The studio is a visual design environment that does not require programming skills. UiPath Studio is very similar to MS Visio or any other diagram and flowchart editor. It is based on .NET and the Microsoft Workflow Foundation. Automated processes can be built using Drag-and-drop technology.
Robot control and management center. Orchestrator is a web-based platform that allows robots to be monitored, managed remotely, and centrally planned. Analytics is available through the creation of customizable reports, as well as ElasticSearch and Kibana dashboards.
Perform the processes developed in UiPath Studio in the same way as an ordinary user would perform them.
- Attended robots share a workspace with the user and work on the same PC. Run manually or automatically (e.g. according to a schedule or after a certain event). Recommended when manual input is required or when strict scheduling is not applicable.
- Unattended robots do not require manual launch. They automate processes in virtual or remote environments. From a software point of view, an unlimited number of robots can be run on a single server. The limitation is the resources allocated by the server operating system.
