Knowledge Boosters on Arguments in UiPath
Do you really want to be good at RPA?
Learn these short and simple knowledge Boosters on UiPath.
Which will help you to get better and faster while designing automation processes.
What is an Argument?
An Argument is similar to Variable.
Which stores the data but here we can pass data between workflows.
In variable we can only pass data inside a workflow between activities.
What are different directions in Argument?
We have four different directions in argument. They are:
What is IN direction Argument type?
IN – Input.
When you want to pass data from one workflow to other workflow, use this direction of argument.
Let’s say you have value in workflow1.
Now, you need to pass this value to workflow2.
Here, we are passing the value as input to workflow2.
What is OUT direction Argument type?
When you want to get the data from one workflow to other workflow, use this direction of argument.
Let’s say you have value in workflow2.
Now, you need to get that value to workflow1.
Here, you need to make argument type in workflow2 is OUT and create a variable in workflow1 to store the data.
What is IN/OUT direction Argument Type?
It works as both IN and OUT direction Argument type.
When that particular argument is sometimes behaves as input and rest it behaves as output.
This is when we use IN/OUT direction in Arguments.
What is Property direction Argument type?
This is the argument direction type which is rarely used.
The main use of this argument type is:
While designing the automation workflows we tend to create so many arguments.
When we want to keep a check on unused argument if you make the direction as Property it will make an alert when you start a process.
