Enhancements to recorder conditions for packages
  • Use the new Object does not exist condition from the Condition list of any package to verify whether a specific object in a window exists and then execute actions based on the result.

    This condition works with SAP technology as well.

  • The existing Object condition is now renamed as Object exists.

Loop package

Enhancements to Excel advanced package
  • Open files with .xml and .txt extensions using the Open action.
  • Use the wildcard character (*) in the Open action for file names to search based on the wildcard pattern.
  • When you use the Run macro action and specify an argument that has a blank value, this blank value can now be passed to the macro.
New option in Database: Disconnect action

In the Database: Disconnect action, you can now use the Keep database schema in cache until bot finishes running option to enable the Loop action to iterate the dataset by using cached schema after disconnecting from the database.

Use regular expressions in File > Open action (Service Cloud case ID: 00737614)

Use regular expressions (regex) in the Open action of the File package to support pattern-based search.

In the Bot editor, use the search box in the Flow, List, or Dual view to search for text, variables, or actions in the entire bot content such as package name, action name, string name, or variable name. This feature helps you to view or edit a bot with long code lines to determine where the searched text, such as variables, strings, or actions, is used and in which line.
