UiPath Orchestrator Guide

About System Administrators

While installing Orchestrator, a default host admin, which is also known as a System Administrator, is created. The host admin has rights to create new tenants, change application settings and audit change password, create, update, register, and delete actions on settings, tenants, and users. The Profile page enables host admins to change their general information and password, as well as view the last login attempts with these credentials.

A tenant can be enabled or disabled at any point, in the Tenants page, by the System Admin.

To log in as the host administrator, use the credentials provided by our teams when purchasing a license and write host in the Tenancy Name field.

The Settings page enables you to change multiple configurations, such as the time zone, the complexity of your password, alert e-mail account information, and license information.

Important!

Please note that if you edit the host settings you'll also edit the settings of all the tenants that did not update their settings with custom values.

The Settings page is organized in tabs, as follows:

  • General tab - Enables you to change the time zone and the language of the user interface for Orchestrator. Details here.
  • Application tab - Allows you to create tenants, change the terms and conditions URL, and give a custom title to your Orchestrator instance.
  • Deployment tab - Enables you to configure and secure a feed, be it internal or external, which can host automation packages.
  • Mail tab - Enables you to configure email settings so that you can send email alerts to users with a provided email address.
  • Security tab - Enables you to configure the password complexity rules for users.
  • Customization tab - Enables you to add custom HTML content to the Login page. The content is displayed right above the Login section.

After editing the value of a setting, click Save.

Localization

You can change the language using the drop-downs displayed on multiple pages at host and tenant levels. You have two options to choose from: English and 日本語. The default is English.

Host Level

According to their position on the pages, there are two types of drop-downs:
A. On the General tab - The language settings here affect the user interface at host level, the Login page, while also propagating at tenant level. The only way for the propagated language to take effect is if no other local changes have been made.
B. On the left-hand menu - The language settings here affect the user interface at host level only. This drop-down has priority over the first one.

Example:

  • If I choose English on A, and Japanese (日本語) on B, the user interface at host level is going to be in Japanese, while at tenant level, English is propagated.

Tenant Level

At this level, the drop-downs are disposed the same as at host level:
C. On the General tab - The language settings here affect the interface for the current user, while also propagating to the other users in the tenant. The only way for the propagated language to take effect is if no other local changes have been made for each user. This drop-down has priority over A.
D. On the left-hand menu - The language settings here affect the interface for the current user only. This drop-down has priority over C, and implicitly over A as well.

Example:

  • If I choose English on C, and Japanese (日本語) on D, the user interface for the current user is going to be in Japanese, while for the other users in the tenant, English is propagated.
  • If no language-related changes are done at this level (C or D), then the language selected on A has been propagated both to the current user and to the others in the tenant.

Bear in mind the following:

  • When choosing the language for the user interface, the users' choice from the left-hand menu has priority over any other settings at any other level.
  • "Propagated" doesn't necessarily mean the changes take effect, it means they are transmitted to the inferior levels. They only take effect if no local changes have been made on those levels.
  • The Login page is always displayed in whatever language is set at host level, on the General tab, unless you change it manually from the drop-down on the page itself.
  • The Become a Tenant and Reset Password pages are displayed in the language selected on the Login page, unless you change it manually from the drop-downs on the pages themselves.
  • The confirmation and reset password emails are sent in the language of the user.

Note

In some cases, you might need to refresh the page, or log out and then log back in such that all elements on the page are localized.

Deployment

On the Deployment tab you can set a feed, be it internal or external, in which automation packages can be maintained. The Internal Deployment toggle switch enables you to choose between the two. By default, the toggle is enabled, meaning an internal feed is used. Disable it to configure an external one.
The feeds can be secured either by defining basic authentication credentials or by using an API key. For more information, click here.

Note

Robots with versions less than v18.2 do not support the Secure Deployment setting.
Robots with versions less than v18.3 can not download packages when using an external feed.

Prerequisites for Using an External Feed Through a Proxy

If you want to use an external feed while you have a proxy server configured on Windows, the following are required beforehand:

  • Set the Load User Profile option for the Orchestrator application pool (Internet Information Services > Application Pools) to True.
  • Add the proxy settings you used in the NuGet.config file associated with the application pool identity account (C:\Users\[YourAppPoolIdentityAccountName]\AppData\Roaming\NuGet\NuGet.Config):
    <config> <add key="http_proxy" value="http://ipaddress:port" /> </config>

Customization

Enables you to add custom HTML which is to be displayed right above the Login section.
The content must be added on the Edit section, and you have the possibility to get a sneak peak of your HTML in the Preview section.
The following tags are allowed: a, br, div, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, i, img, p, span, strike, strong, style.

Don't forget to click Save for your changes to take effect.
