      Description

      Background

      To test and evaluate the bridge component approach to orchestrate UI Path RPA scripts with Camunda, we want to build a prototype with the following specification.

      A visualization of the approach can be found here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1MDG8GgwA9K9zkjnYCFWkvMXXY-0z1Y9kMsiqUZCJCw4/edit?ts=5ed0c8fa#slide=id.p 

      Scope of prototype
      As we discussed a bridge component will

      • Fetch and lock specific tasks from the runtime engine (using "topic" as a task identifier, including variables)
      • Send an async request with a task identifier & variables to UI path and receives a Job Id in return
      • The bridge then polls or receives a result from UI Path via:
        • a. a polling approach or
        • b. a webhook approach
      • and sends the result with the variables back to the engine where the process can continue.

      Assessment of the prototype
