Using the value extracted in one bot as an input to another bot

Post by gdesaidublin on Mon Jun 18, 2018 10:05 pm

Hello,

Scenario :

Bot 1 extracts the a value from an application using device automation. The extracted value is saved in a variable x.

I need to pass the value in variable x  to BOT 2 for further processing.

How should this be done ?

Hi, the question is, why you have these robots separated? If there's no need for it, you just use the variable in next steps. In case you need it, there are these options:
1) Store the variable into database and in the second robot simple load it.
2) Set the variable in robot 2 as input variable and in robot 1 call robot 2 via WebServices and there you can put the value from variable x as input for robot 2.
3) Other options are also like save it into an Excel, or text file, but I don't get the point here to use it this way.
Best regards,
Pavel
