Notes de l'éditeur
In October 2021 we launched Integration Service where we now have close to 50 connectors available that result in thousands of API calls a day and triggering hundreds of processes. We will be releasing many more prebuilt connectors with complementary Activity Packs to provide ready-to-use integrations for high valuable applications. As the average enterprise easily has over 150 SaaS applications, there will always be that one application that our customers are looking to integrate with, but we don’t have readily available. Therefore, we are introducing Connector Builder.
We also launched Event Triggers in GA in December 2021
Other notable achievements:
First-party with accessibility, localization, identity
Support for curated eventsEvent polling interval
SOC2 Type 1 attestation
Region availability in EU, NA, JP region
Before I walk you through how to build a connector, let’s talk about what a connector is made out of…
Third-party application APIs come in many different shapes and sizes. There are different technologies (f.e. REST/SOAP), they are different data formats like JSON and XML, and a lot of complexity in authentication with standards such as OAuth 2.0, basic authentication or completely custom implementations..
On the other hand, the goal of a connector within UiPath, is to make a third-party API available and useable within the UiPath platform, so you can interact with this application without needing to worry about the API. Whether you are building Robots using our Studio designers, setting up an application in UiPath apps, or even simply looking to connect to a system and configure your connection in UiPath Assistant.
Integrating with an API is based on three core components
The Base API implementation which abstracts the technology
The Authentication which allows anybody USING the connector to create a connection easily
The Resources that allow to interact with the data
In addition, you may want to…
Enrich the data models to make it easier for your users to interact with the data
Enhance search capabilities to find the data they need
Or add the capability to use event triggers for the third-party application
All of this is what Connector Builder aims to achieve, so each custom-built connector work seamlessly across the UiPath product portfolio.
Now let’s dive into Connector Builder and let me show you how it works!
With Connector Builder, our users will be able to rapidly add third-party business application APIs as a connector in their Connector Catalog – and share their creations with the marketplace. Once published – your users will be able to create connections, use the integration in their automations and across any UiPath product where Integration Service is leveraged, for example Studio, your robots and UiPath Apps. With Connector Builder, we are unlocking the full potential of interacting with third-party APIs within UiPath and provide you the flexibility seamlessly interact with any API you need.
Connector Builder is really a tool for anybody looking to meet specific use cases with a connector we do not have available in our official catalog.
Maybe you are a Technology Partner looking to differentiate and leveraging your expertise to monetize ready-mode solutions in a specific domain
Maybe you are a UiPath customer aiming to solve your specific use case that requires interaction with a third-party application API
Or maybe you are a community developer, and you want to apply your application knowledge to share your creations with others through the marketplace
No matter which category you fall into, if you are an RPA developer with basic API knowledge and access to application knowledge, you are the right fit for Connector Builder.
Today I will be giving you a quick overview of Insights, UiPath’s analytics tool.
Insights is a web application that serves as a platform for data modeling and analytics using a combination of available business metrics and operational insights. With pre-loaded dashboard Templates as well as user-defined dashboards to visualize company data across desired metrics, it enables you to discover new analytical insights, track performance indicators, and be alerted of errors.
The Insights homepage displays all available dashboards to which the user has access. By default, all users have access to the Robots and Machines, Processes, Queues, and Attended Reporting Templates that are included with the product. The Business ROI and Business ROI Queues templates will be locked unless the administrator has added data to the ROI dataset, and the appropriate permissions are granted to a user. Each dashboard can be copied and customized, as well as downloaded in various formats.
