Required role: Administrator

The Repositories screen on the Robotic tasks tab allows you to manage the Maven repositories that robotic tasks use. During execution, the robotic task needs to download dependencies from these Maven repositories to successfully execute on the robot.

To get started, click the Repositories icon in the toolbar:


Note:  Appian recommends you use private repositories as much as possible to ensure the reliability of your robotic tasks and associated components. Improperly configured repositories can result in execution errors or exceptions. Public repositories like Maven Central and the artifacts within them may be changed often, which may adversely affect your robotic tasks or lead to unexpected behavior.

The List of repositories shows all repositories you've defined in the console. The list includes the following columns:

  • Order: Repositories are listed in the order their dependencies will be resolved. If the dependency is not found in the first repository, Appian RPA looks for it in the next repository in the list. You can change the order using the arrow icons.
  • URL: web address of the repository
  • User: username to authenticate with the repository
  • Password: password to authenticate with the repository (masked for security)
  • Actions: gives you the option to delete the repository

To add a repository:

  1. Go to the Repositories editor.
