Newly Enhanced Triggers Help Drive Automation


UiPath Integration Service is on a mission to help drive every robot’s role across any application within an automated workflow.

As part of the leading robotic process automation (RPA) platform combining world-class user interface (UI) and API automation, Integration Service provides a rapidly growing library of pre-built connectors and connections.

That said, both connectors and connection management—and robots — depend on triggers to activate the next step in an automated process. By automating workflows from application-to-application, triggers, for example, can help quickly drive a human resources (HR) onboarding process, a typical order-to-pay scenario, or even a complex, lead-to-cash workflow.

Robots love triggers

Triggers support robots by reacting to key events in third-party systems, empowering robots to start an automation, or activate the next step in a workflow process. This enables robots to increase efficiency by responding to key business changes in near real time.

Trigger activations are generated by server-side events, including data updates, or added data, and deletions. For example, a workflow could be started by a new opportunity updated in Salesforce, a transaction being posted in SAP®, or simply, the receipt of an email.

Consider the HR onboarding example below, where each robot activity or ‘Step’, triggers an automated process response.

Enhanced flexibility—and governance

In addition to driving automation workflows, triggers also provide self-governance capabilities.

Now, based on the instructive customer feedback we received from our Integration Service public preview, UiPath provides substantive enhancements to both triggers and connection management:
