Choosing a strategy for executing jobs in UiPath

Overview

A strategy in UiPath defines how the robots of the environment execute the jobs in a process. For instance, you may choose to execute a job by one or more specific robots, a fixed number of robots or all of them. Bear in mind that strategies can be used when a UiPath process is configured. The following article presents the 3 types of strategies that you can configure.

 

Strategies in UiPath

UiPath offers 3 different strategies that can be configured to execute the jobs in a process:

All: all the available robots execute the job.

Specific: a specific robot or list of robots execute the job.

RobotCount: a specific number of robots execute the job.

 

Choosing the All strategy

If you select the All strategy, all the available robots execute the job. Take into account that you can choose this strategy only if the fire and forget option is selected.
