Good morning, Just looking for input as to how others deal with RPA Scripts not running if RDP sessions are not active? We currently have one main RPA server and then from that server we create 4 separate RDP sessions that run all the scripts. If those RDP sessions get closed for any reason, chaos ensues! I did find the solution that includes changing some registry settings so the RD will not switch to a GUI-less mode. However, I am wondering if anyone is setup in a way that does not include RDP sessions? Thanks in advance!
Wondering if someone can help me figure out the following: I have a variable that could populate with various information such as "1K to 3.5K" or "1K to 10K". The goal would be that if this variable includes anything under 10K, or less, another field is populated with 1K to 10K. I tried to use the "ContainsNumber" and IsLess formulas but I can't figure out how to put them together. There is probably another way I should be creating this statement so I thank you in advance for helping me out.
Windows 10 updates will makes changes to some system configurations that can impact applications running on your systems. A Nintex RPA customer recently updated Windows 10 and could not find their botflows. After some investigation, we found what Windows 10 had done to specific directories, where files are store. Click here for more details on how to get your botflows back.
Just wondering if any of you guys may have a suggestion on dealing with an issue I'm experiencing trying to automate an administration item on a webapp. The webApp has a date picker control that does not allow a date to be typed in, but forces the user to click on a date. When you click on the calendar control a 'calendar' appears to allow the selection of a date on the screen. The issue is that the control disappears anytime the screen looses focus. When I try to put in a target in RPA to target the date that I'm trying to select and execute a Click, the action fails. Has anyone experienced a similar situation and developed a way to manage this type of control? Thanks
We just upgraded to RPA Central and we used to keep backup versions of Foxtrot scripts in a network location. Now that we're on RPA Central any user with Admin access can delete a botflow. If a botflow is deleted, is there a location we can go to retrieve it? How should we create backups of our botflow scripts?
Hi all, I would like to automate the process of grabbing some files from a folder and emailing them. The issue is that the folder in which the files are stored is located in a shared drive and the folder contains 500+ files. So looping through the shared folder to find the files takes very long, almost to the point of where completing the process manually would be quicker (yes, even when setting the speed to max). Is there a way to loop through that folder to grab the files without creating a list? Alternatively, i thought about using the copy file function and copying the files over locally and then using the email function to email them. However, i was not sure how to incorporate the IF statement with the conditions to find the correct file like i could use when looping through a list. Hope that makes sense. Thanks.
I have a workflow that gathers some data and then kicks off a botflow to do some work using those values. Or that's the theory at least. I can't find any way to pass the variables / values into the botflow... Any help would be much appreciated.
For users that upgraded to v17.0.4 or v17.0.5, botflows with Click actions that were created between v16.6.1-16.6.7, may not work as intended. When executing a click action, it's X,Y coordinates may be treated as screen coordinates instead of their intended relative coordinates to the target element. We are in the process of fixing this bug and will have an update shortly. If you can not wait for the bug fix, the next best option is to re-create the Click action.
Hello, i was wondering if it is possible to use wildcards in the "ID" field under the rules of an action. In my case, i want to automate SAP, but parts of the IDs of the elements within the GUI change every time i log in so the actions won't work. The only workaround i see is to use wildcards. Is that possible? Greetings, Benjamin.
I have a drop down list that can contain anywhere from 1 to 4 items. I am using "Select Next Item" to cycle through the list. How to I know I have cycled through the list whether it is 2 or 3 or 4 items? RPA will have an error, but I cannot target that error. This is a Fiserv Navigator platform.
Hi, I've tried to insert a variable data which get from image(png) to base64 with Python conversion. The variable contains the full and correct base64 string but when use Execute SQL Server library and tried to insert the variable into the SQL Server field with NVARCHAR(Max), it has been truncated and insert successfully but with a truncated string. Do you have any suggestions for this issue ? Version Use : RPA Central 2.0.3Nintex BOT : 17.0.3 Thank you.

Open Workbook Error 13: Unable to cast COM object of type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Applicati'
Hi All, I am new to Nintex RPA and trying to create one bot which starts by openning a workbook. Once I try to run the script, the action "Open Workbook" give me the following error: "Error 13: Unable to cast COM object of type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.ApplicationClass' to interface type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel._Application'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with ID.....failed due to the following error: Element not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8002802B (TYPE_E_ELEMENTNOTFOUND))." (see attachment). I tried with different workbooks and only with this action. I am using local version of Excel of O365. I appreciate in advance for any help.
I'm having an issue where my Bots are going 'offline' in RPA Central after completing a scheduled task. All of my Bots end with the 'Close Me' action which seems to make it lose connection with RPA Central. Other bots on the same VM do remain online, it is only the Bot that completes the task which then goes offline. I'm running Nintex Bot 14.0.4 and RPA Central 2.0.3
RPA central fails to load. When restarting the RPA Central service it throws the error in the attached screenshot. When I try to open Foxtrot it says Nintex could not reach the configured URL. We did not change the URL at all. Restarting the server that rpa central is hosted on does not fix the issue
We have recently upgraded to RPA Central 2.0.1 and our bots to v.17.0.1. However, we can't get the scheduling of the botflows to work. For test we have three botflows. One is running every whole hour, the second running 30 min after the first botflow and the third botflow two times a day (8:15 am, 5:15 pm). These botflows are assigned to a bot on a second machine. See attachment. After the upgrade, botflows one and two was running as scheduled, but only did respectively 2 times, then they did not start again. However, you could manually start the botflows on the assigned bot through RPA Central and they will run without any issues and finish. Hence, there should not be any connectivity problems between RPAC and the bot. For reference, we are running Enterprise-license.
