    Orchestrator-RED

    A Node-RED wrapper for the UiPath Orchestrator API

    Release Notes

    v2.2.0

    • SUPPORT FOR FOLDERS: Orchestrator version 19.10 brought the concept of Folders, which sequester resources within a tenant. Now, our Request and Start-Job nodes support this with a Folder field in which users can specify a folder by name.
    • Users with Orchestrators below v19.10 who still want to use Organization Units can specify an org unit by putting X-UiPath-OrganizationUnitId in the parameter list of a node. Note that the Default folder ID is different for every tenant. Use the Orchestrator API to retrieve this ID.

    v2.1.1

    • The Request node now wraps the 2019.12 API, which includes several new calls.

    v2.0.0

    • Now supports both Cloud and On-Premise Orchestrators, which use different authentication schemes. For more information, see the official UiPath documentation here.
    • BREAKING CHANGE: The URL field no longer defaults to https://platform.uipath.com. Connection nodes without a value in the URL field will fail.
