This article will explain how to add a node to start a job in the UiPath orcestrator. It will also explain how to add a JSON payload to send information to this process. 



After you have added your authentication node you will probably want to trigger a job from your UiPath Orchestrator services.

Add Start a specific job Node to flow

In your flow below your Add Releases node click on + to open the mask to add nodes. Navigate to Extensions in the mask and then the UiPath symbol to see all Nodes associated with the UiPath extension. Choose the Start a specific job node from the list and it will be added to the flow.

Clicking on the node will open up the edit node function where you can enter the credentials for your node.

By clicking on + next to the field for Orchestrator Instance Information you can open up a window to enter information for your account and tenant. 

If you are using an on-premise Orchestrator you can simply choose the information you already entered for authentication.

Finding Information in UiPath Cloud

You can find the information in the same place you found your  Client ID and User Key

Account Logical Name should go into the field accountLogicalName.

Tenant Name should go in tenantLogicalName.

Click Create to save the information. 

Access Token is a dynamic value created by when you run the Authentication node. Simply put the Cognigy code for the field where you stored the results here. 

Process Release Key and Organization Unit ID are both values which were fetched by the Get Releases Node written in Cognigy script. Keep in mind depending on which release you wish to use the value might differ. 

The Robot IDs for your process can be found using the the method found using Postman as per the description in the UiPath API Documentation or by accessing the API References via Swagger.

Input Arguments is used to send data to UiPath Orchestrator in JSON format using the following JSON pattern. It is of course possible to add Cognigy Script as a value and transfer it to your UiPath flow (for example when information from the chat session should be added to documents, etc.):

    "key1": "value1",
    "key2": "value2",
    "key3": "value3",

After saving the node when you run your flow your UiPath Assistant should run the process on the machine where you set up the process.
