How to use Robolytix with Blue Prism

Robolytix is the key online analytic and monitoring tool for Robotic Process Automation using Sonar technology to evaluate, audit, monitor and improve performance of robots operating on any application or RPA platform. This article describes integration of Robolytix with Blue Prism and covers tips for effective analytics.

Blue Prism's connected-RPA Platform is an intelligent automation ecosystem comprised of advanced technologies, and a community of experts, researchers and providers.

Prerequisities

To use Robolytix with Blue Prism, it is necessary to have a Robolytix account.

If you do not have one, you can create the account at Robolytix.com and make basic settings using the onboarding wizard.

Guides For Integration

We have two guides for integrating Blue Prism with Robolytix for the first time. First guide simplifies some steps by using package for import. You can use second guide, when importing packages is disabled, or you don't have rights for imports.

Using Sonar

Robolytix need to get information about your process through sonars. Nice example of integration is described in first short guide Setting up Robolytix in Blue Prism. It contains Robolytix Demo process and it is recommended for understanding use of sonars. This section describes how to add sonar to your process.

Initialization

There should be initialization at the beginning of the process. This section initializes main variables for connecting this process to specific process in Robolytix.

  1. Set apikey variable to your API key from Robolytix
  2. Set processid variable to your Process ID from Robolytix
  3. Initialize runid with unigue or random value.

Add Sonar

You should add sonar to specific step in your process. Good places are:

  • at the beginning of the process
  • at the end of the process
  • at the beginning of inner loops
  • in all branches in the process

There are two variables you must set in one Sonar action.

  1. Set name variable to string, that clearly identifies Sonar position in process. E.g. "Getting data from SAP" or "Processing one lead in CRM"
  2. Set type variable to one of values start, common, end, or error.

Basic Integration Of Sonars

Fist step in monitoring your process is to add sonars to the begnning and at the end of flow.

Add start Sonar

You should have first sonar at the beggining of your process. This sonar informs Robolytix, that process started. This sonar must have sonar type set to start.

Add end Sonar

Second sonad should be at the end of the process. It is used for clearly identifing finished processes. This sonar must have sonar type set to end.

Basic Robolytix Sonar Integration

Advanced integration of Sonars

Add sonar to main branches in your process. Type of all sonars in the middle of process should be common.

Advanced Robolytix Sonar Integration

You can also monitor all errors and exception in your process. Type of error sonars must be error.

After proper process execution go to Robolytix platform and check process statistics. It is possible to show all recent messages sent to specified process. Go to Settings -> Processes menu and select list of process messages.

When you have any problems with implementation look at the Robolytix Demo task. There is also Robolytix Support Forum for following questions.
