Summary

Summary

This activity can convert UiPath Orchestrator queue items stuck in "In Progress" status to either new queue items or to retired queue items.

Overview

Overview

Motivation

The primary motivation of this activity stemed from an UiPath Community Forum post "Why is there STILL no way to delete an In Progress Queue Item?!"   

The secondary motivation came from the fact that we in HEMIT (Helse Midt-Norge IT) wanted to have an internal tool during the build stage where any developer in the team could run an attended robot to modify queue items stuck in In Progress status. 

Description

This activity starts an attended automation where the user can choose the Orchestrator folder and associated queues within the folder. From the chosen queue, the activity fetches all queue items stuck in In Progress status. Then the user can choose between three modification options:

1. Set the In Progress queue items to new queue items (this option erases the retry history of the queue item and sets it as a fresh queue item).

2. Set the In Progress queue items to retried queue items or failed queue items while retaining the history of the queue item.

Note 

a) If the max retry has been reached, the queue item is set to Failed status. This is dependent on your Max Retry Number set either in queue settings or from your configuration.

b) If a Business exception failure is the chosen failure type, the item will be set to failed queue status and not retried or new. This is because when a business exception occurs, UiPath deems the item to have failed without a need for retry. 

3. Abort the attended automation without any modifications of queue items.
