UiPath: Schedule, Trigger, and Monitor Processes


Your use of this download is governed by Stonebranch’s Terms of Use, which are available at https://www.stonebranch.com/integration-hub/Terms-and-Privacy/Terms-of-Use/


This Universal Task allows Stonebranch users to schedule, trigger, and monitor the UiPath (RPA) process directly from the Universal Controller. 

  • This task uses a Python request module to make REST-API calls to the UiPath orchestrator.

  • It can trigger the RPA process in UiPath using just UiPath process name, orchestrator base URL, UiPath account name and service instance.

  • The task triggers the UiPath process for execution, monitors until process completion, and populates the results in Universal Controller.

  • It also features a tight integration with ITSM tools, meaning that it can auto-create incidents in case of UiPath RPA process execution failure.

Software Requirements

This integration requires an Universal Agent and a Python runtime to execute the Universal Task against a UiPath orchestrator instance.

Software Requirements for Universal Template and Universal Task

  • Requires Python 3.6 or higher. Tested with the Universal Agent bundled Python distribution.

  • Python modules required:

    • requests

Software Requirements for Universal Agent


  • Universal Agent for Windows x64 Version and later with python options installed

  • Universal Agent for Linux Version and later with python options installed

Software Requirements for Universal Controller
