Embed a UiPath App

UiPath Apps "is a cloud-based low-code application development platform that enables you to build and share enterprise-grade custom applications that deliver engaging user experiences".

With PixieBrix, you can embed UiPath Apps into any webpage, including 3rd-party pages, and automatically pass information from the page to the app

For example, you could embed a UiPath app in the Salesforce Service Console, passing in the case number and any other case information:

Prepare your UiPath App for Embedding

Go to the UiPath App and publish the app if it has not been published already.

Copy the production link from the settings section of the UiPath app

Embedding the UiPath App via Sidebar

Create the Sidebar Panel

  • Create a Sidebar Panel starter brick

  • Delete the Render Document brick

  • Add an iFrame brick (paste the UiPath production URL in the url field of the brick)

Passing Data to your UiPath App

Add App Variables to UiPath Apps

Add an App Variable to the UiPath App for each data variable you want to pass from PixieBrix to UiPath. For further walkthrough of adding App Variables, watch this explanation video or read UiPath's documentation.

To use the provided property in your application, add a Value Binding to the field. Alternatively/additionally, you can configure a "Value Changed" rule for the Textbox. See the UiPath Apps documentation for more details

Add URL Parameters to the iFrame in PixieBrix

  • Create a Sidebar Panel

  • Delete the Render Document Brick

  • Add a Construct URL brick

    • Paste the UiPath App production URL into the URL field

    • Switch the URL parameters field to type "Object Properties" by clicking on the X

    • Enter App Variables names in the property field and text or variables in the value field

  • Add IFrame brick

    • Use the output variable from the Construct URL brick (@url.url ) in the url field of the IFrame brick
