Complete Changelog

Improvements

Studio Pro

  1. Highlight interface elements that are currently unused in activities. Unused elements that are not added to any of the activities will be displayed as inactive. This indicates that such elements can be safely deleted or, for example, modified. There is also a tooltip that shows the number of blocks in which the element is used (for active elements).
  2. Highlight unfilled parameters when publishing to Orchestrator or exporting to .neex. Now in case there are unset parameters in a workflow, the corresponding activities will be highlighted when trying to publish it to Orchestrator or export it to .neex format.
  3. Added links to antiviruses exclusion list guides in Loader window. In case of error when checking the connection while launching the program, a message stating that the program could be blocked by an antivirus is shown. Now this message is extended with links to guides explaining how to add programs to the exclusion list of popular antiviruses.
  4. Detailed error messages in Loader window. Added more detailed error messages in Loader window in case there was a trouble when establishing connection.
  5. Display execution time in console in all cases. With this change bot execution time will also be shown in case the user stopped the execution manually or in case an error occured.
  6. More intuitive message for Cannot read property 'attributes’ error in interface-related activities. Sometimes it could happen that a workflow containing interface elements was developed and it was either moved to another location separately from the .elm files or the .elm files were deleted. Now a more intuitive and clear message will be displayed in such cases.
  7. Support for relative paths in Calculate value option. Now it is possible to set relative paths to files when choosing Calculate value option when setting parameters of activities that handle files. It also works when using Save the previous step result option.

Bot Runner

  1. Display an error when trying to launch a bot while another one is still being executed. Now when attempting to launch a bot using Bot Runner while another bot is already being executed, an error message showing that Bot Runner is already in use will be displayed. The ‘ Run bot ’ button will also be unavaliable in this case.
  2. Added antiviruses exclusion list guides in Loader window. In case of error when checking the connection while launching the program, a message stating that the program could be blocked by an antivirus is shown. Now this message is extended with links to guides explaining how to add programs to the exclusion list of popular antiviruses.

Orchestrator

  1. Added awaiting status when all the Bot Runners are offline. If all the Bot Runners assigned to a workflow are offline, a more intuitive status ’ No available Bot Runners ’ will be displayed instead of ‘ Ready ’.
  2. Added tooltips for Bot Runner statuses. Bot Runner statuses now have tooltips describing their current state in more detail.
