UiPath: Get Robots By Username

This article will explain how the Get Robots by Username Node can be used to get the robot ID required to start a specific job. 



After you have added your authentication node you might require the Robot ID for your process in order to launch it directly. 

Add Get Robots by Username 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 Get Robots by Username node from the list and it will be added to the flow.

Finding Field Information in Start a Job Node

Username of Robot in Orchestrator is the username of the robot which should be triggered. This might not be the username you use to log into orchestrator, but rather the username for the robot currently running on the workplace the automation is running. 

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. 

The Access Token can also be added via a Cognigy Tokens which was created by the extension. .
