This release includes exciting enhancements to automation, Appian Records, and more.

Automate Windows applications entirely with low-code RPA

You can use our new module to automate Windows applications entirely with low-code. It’s easy to open and close specific applications, perform a variety of common or complex actions, and even switch between two open apps.

Access related data more easily

You can now relate your record types using relationships to connect your data and then seamlessly reference this data throughout your applications. You can even relate data from different source types, like Salesforce and a database table.

Integrate Appian releases into your existing deployment pipeline

We've created new deployment APIs that can be called from external tools, such as Jenkins or Azure DevOps. You can set up your pipeline once and run it the same way for all future deployments, saving time and avoiding manual errors.

Updated Learning Path: Appian Robotic Process Automation: Learn to Develop Bots

Creating robotic processes (bots) is now a low-code experience. This updated learning path contains a new course, Creating Bots with Appian. In that course you’ll learn what RPA is, how it can be used in Appian applications, and how to design and build low-code bots.

New RPA Tutorial: Build a Retrieval Process

In our new tutorial, Build a Retrieval Process, you'll use low-code methods to create a robotic process that retrieves information from a public web page. Then, you'll create an Appian process model and related objects to trigger the bot and manage the data the bot returns. We recommend this tutorial to anyone interested in working with Appian and Appian RPA together.

New interactive code sample editor

Some of our component pages feature a new interactive code sample editor! Rather than copying and pasting an example into expression, you can now change and evaluate the sample code directly in the documentation.
