Pega Robot Studio v21 Preview

Pega Robot Studio offers in-depth functionality to take your automations to the next level.

Among the advanced features offered:

  • Robot Inspector
  • PDF Connector
  • Excel Connector
  • xRay Vision
  • Server Bot Framework
  • Recording
  • Interrogation (and Interrogation Form)
  • Adding C# methods with a script component

    A script component lets you add custom C# methods to your solutions for advanced functionality or situations where interrogation or recording isn't possible or sufficient.

  • Using the UI Connector framework

    UI Connectors provides another method for accessing native controls in an application, so you can build automations when a translator is not available.

  • Extensions

    Use extensions if a full target implementation is not required or if you need functionality that is not exposed by the target, such as when the native control is a grid with a useful Export method, but the Export method is not part of the IGridTarget interface.

  • Environment overrides

    Use environment overrides to customize your project to run in different environments, such as Development, QA, and Production environments.
