UiPath Terminal Activities

by UiPath








The Terminal pack contains activities designed to connect to a terminal and efficiently work within it.



Introduction to the Terminal Pack

The Terminal Pack comprises a set of activities tailored for seamless interaction with a terminal environment. These activities facilitate the retrieval of text, fields, or screen positions, as well as the execution of actions such as sending keys, text, or awaiting specific triggers such as the appearance of designated text or fields.

Establishing Terminal Connections

The cornerstone of this pack is the Terminal Session activity, which empowers users to establish a connection with a designated terminal environment. This connection can be established through either a direct link or via compatibility with third-party terminal emulations, including but not limited to Attachmate Reflection, Attachmate Extra, Rocket Bluezone, IBM Personal Communications, Reflection for UNIX, Reflection for IBM, or other IBM EHLLAPI-compatible terminal emulators.

Key Activities in the Terminal Pack

This package includes the following App Integration related activities:

  • Terminal Session - A container that connects to a terminal and enables you to perform multiple actions within it.
  • Get Screen Area - Extracts the text from a certain area of the terminal screen.
  • Get Text at Position - Extracts the text starting from a specified position and containing a certain number of characters.
  • Get Color at Position - Extracts the foreground color of the text at the specified position as a .Net System.Drawing.Color object.
