OIC and Blue Prism RPA by Niall Commiskey

I downloaded the BluePrism trial this morning, along with a set of 10 beginner labs they make available online.

Blue Prism Design Time

The focus of this post is not on how to design automations with Blue Prism; the 10 labs do a great job of that. The focus here is on how to invoke such from OIC.

I will use the following process as an example – this is actually Lab4  Blue Prism offers a rich set of process design actions –

Some of these have been used to add robustness to the process model, very important for mission critical automations.

The process shown above is very simple – it opens the Blue Prism website in InternetExplorer and searches for a specific topic – e.g. Coca Cola

So it is doing the following, from an automation perspective –

1. open the page in IE

2. enter data – the search string – in the search box

3. press the search button.

I test this within the Blue Prism Design Studio and it works fine. The search value – Coca Cola – is hard coded, as you can see in the Data Items block above.

Now say I want to expose this functionality as a service – I will then need to define an input variable for the search string. This can be easily defined in the Start action. Read the complete article here.
