Appian RPA makes it easier to create robotic tasks by providing you with templates to use as a starting point. This section contains information about the templates that come bundled with Appian RPA.
Templates demonstrate the most common and general use cases for Appian RPA modules. The examples can help you learn more about individual actions and understand how actions operate together in a robotic task.
To use a template, click Create robotic task in the Appian RPA console. Choose the best template to help you get started.
After you give your robotic task a name, the template's source code is automatically downloaded. The source code for the robotic task is relevant to custom code development only. If you're using low-code actions, you can ignore the automatically downloaded file.
Java developers: Navigate to the
.java file in the template's folder structure. Now you're ready to get started developing your robotic task in your local development environment.
The List of Templates page shows all templates in RPA. To find this page, go to the Robotic Tasks tab and click Templates from the toolbar.
You'll see the list of available templates. Sort the list by the Name, Description, or Version columns. Each template also shows when it was last updated, as well as available actions. You can use the Filter field to search for robotic task templates whose names or descriptions match your search terms.
You can't download or delete default templates.
To create a robotic task based on a template, click Create a robot in the Actions column. You'll see the same options available when you create a robotic task from scratch, including Name and Permissions fields.
Appian RPA includes these templates by default:
