Using a dictionary variable for PDF properties

When you automate a PDF-related task, RPA Workspace retrieves various properties of the file and stores the values of these properties in a dictionary variable.

RPA Workspace retrieves the PDF file name and extension, title, subject, and author. The file properties are stored in a dictionary variable within the following keys:
  • pdfTitle
  • pdfFilename
  • pdfSubject
  • pdfAuthor
The system automatically associates the properties of a PDF with the appropriate dictionary keys.

For example, if you create a dictionary variable Test and want to log the file name and author, you must enter Test{pdfFilename} and Test{pdfAuthor} in the appropriate fields.
