b) Send Windows Message– This is the method which allows background execution as well as use of Hotkeys
c) Simulate Type / Key– This is the fastest of the available three methods and would also work in the background too. It is compatible with most of the web apps and desktop apps

85) What are output methods?

They refer to the methods or activities which would allow you to extract data from a specified UI element or document, such as a pdf file.

Full Text will be the default method. It is the fastest and accurate, and would also work in background execution. it cannot extract the screen coordinates of the text, but it can allow you to extract hidden text. This method would work only with desktop applications. It is used by “Get Full Text” activity.

Native is the second method and it is accurate and faster than OCR. It allows you to extract text position but will be unable to extract hidden text. It does not support background execution and Citrix. This method is used by “Get Text” activity.

OCR is not 100% accurate but can be used to extract text that the other two methods would be unable to extract and it would work with all applications including Citrix. It can also allow you to extract Text position.

86) What is asset and why we need it?

  • Assets are shared variables or credentials which can be used in automation projects
  • They allow you to store specific information so that the automations/robots can easily access it.
  • With assets you will get extra level of security, as all credentials stored here are encrypted with the AES 256 algorithm. They can be called by RPA developers while they are developing a process, but will be unable to see their values.

132) Which type of documents Document Understanding can automate? It can automate below categories of documents-

  • Structured
  • Semi-structured
  • Unstructured

133) What are the different types of approaches that can be considered/taken while extracting the data?

When extracting document data, you have below three different approaches:

You can use A rule-based, or template-based, approach which takes actions which are based on specific, user-specified rules.

You can use Machine Learning (ML) models which would learn how to respond to dynamic situations.
In some cases, you might have to use a hybrid approach which would combine rules, templates, and ML models to ensure more effective data extraction.

134) What are the types of extractors in Document Understanding?

Below are the types of extractors
RegEx Based Extractor – it would rely on regular expressions to extract the information
Form Extractor – It would work on the rules and templates and it can process structured documents, tables, checkboxes.
Intelligent Form Extractor – This method would apply intelligent templates and rules for data extraction, and can process mostly structured documents
ML Extractors for invoices, receipts, purchase orders, etc. – These are powered by ML models. They are suitable for processing less structured documents

135) What is Classifier & Types of Classifiers in Document Understanding?

A classifier helps you to identify the document type which needs to be handled by the process as per the defined taxonomy.
An extractor would identify the specific information from a certain document type.
Below are types of classifiers:
Keyword Based Classifier: it Processes files which include repeatable titles or words.
FlexiCapture Classifier: it would Apply FlexiCapture definition files to classify information from a document.
Intelligent Keyword Classifier: It would classify and split document packages into different individual document types.

136) What is Taxonomy Manager and Load Taxonomy?

It is a feature which can be used to create and edit a Taxonomy file which is specific to your automation project. This Taxonomy file would contain user-defined document types, sorted by groups and categories. You can access the taxonomy manager after installing a UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities package .
Load Taxonomy: it Turns the taxonomy.json file which is created with the help of the Taxonomy Manager into a variable which can be further used in other activities.

137) What is Digitize Document?

It refers to Digitizing a document, extracting its Document Object Model (DOM) and text and then storing into their corresponding variable types

138) What is Classify Document Scope?

It provides a scope for classifier activities, which provides all of the necessary files needed to perform document classification. Accepts at least one classifier, and brokers between them, ensuring all parameters are forwarded to the child classification activities.

139) What is Data Extraction Scope?

It provides a scope for extractor activities, which enables you to configure them as per the document types defined in your taxonomy. The output of the activity would be stored in an extraction result variable, which would contain all automatically extracted data

140) What is Present Validation Scope?

It opens the Validation Station, which would enable the user to review and correct document classification and automatic data extraction is a powerful tool that allows users to make real-time CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) operations on digitized documents

141) What is Export Extraction Result?

This feature gives you access to extraction results by exporting results from an extraction result variable to a Dataset variable which can be further processed. It can be obtained from either data extraction scope or the present validation station activities.

142) Ask my questions (Asked from sai krishna, Oct 23)
How can we read more than one lakh items in Excel? it is taking more time

How can we read more than one lakh items in Excel

In this case please use Excel as a Database.

Please follow the below steps.

Use Connect To Database activity by adding UiPath.Database.Activities package

Please provide the connection string into the activity. Please refer the below screenshot.

“Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=” & ExcelPath & “;Extended Properties=’Excel 12.0 Xml;HDR=YES;IMEX=1′;”

ExcelPath = String Variable, please provide the path of your excel file

143) Which five (5) of the following functions can be performed using the App/Web Recorder in UiPath Studio? Review Later Record actions performed on a web or desktop application Select input mode used to perform recorded actions during both recording and runtime Edit the recorded actions to modify or remove any unnecessary steps Generate a workflow based on the recorded actions Run the recorded actions on any browser or desktop application Store the recorded objects in an object repository for reuse in other workflows Create and execute test cases based on the recorded actions. (Ask your Question: Asked by Bagirathi. M)

All the functions can be performed using the App/Web Recorder in UiPath Studio.

144) UI Path: What are the challenges you faced in UI Path? (Ask your Question: Asked by Bagirathi. M)

The challenges are based on what are the difficulties you faced during the automation development. It will vary person to person. Below are a few examples.

Any technical challenge while building the automation (e.g. Automation on SAP, ServiceNOW, Salesforce as it does not support the UI automation where we have to perform backend automation)

If there is Surface automation (Thin Client) Mainframe, Citrix and VDI where we will not get the selectors at that time we have to find an alternative approach. E.g. Computer Vision, Citrix Plugin etc.
