Capture 2.0 Export to XML

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Capture 2.0 Export to XML

    Posted 02-25-2021 10:59
    Hi,

    We're having issues when attempting to export a recorded process as an XML file.

    When we attempt to export we're met with a small red [!] 


    There are no other error messages other than the above.

    Has anyone else come across this - if so - what is the solution? 

    Thanks,

    Hi Alex, 

    Sorry to hear you are having problems. 

    Does this occur when you are only trying to export the XML file? Or are you selecting other export options at the same time? 

    Best regards,

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    It's purely exporting as XML - no other options have been selected.

    Hi Alex,

    Apologies for the delayed response.

    Is this issue occurring for a particular process, or across all processes that you have tried?
    Also, is this issue persistent across both versions (installed .msi and installer less .exe)?

    Thanks,

    Hi Rhys,

    It's happening on all processes.

    We mainly wanted to trial the capture tool for the XML output.

    This happens for .MSI and .EXE

    Both version create the [!] for each of the export options.

    As reference - Tom has resolved my issue in another thread

    "Capture automatically exports to Downloads folder in C:\Users\USERNAME\Downloads. Could you both please ensure you have the same file path, if not could you create the appropriate folder to see if the problem is resolved? 

    Here's an example from my Capture v2.0 instance on my machine of the folder that the files export to:"

    This solution worked for me for anyone experiencing the same [ ! ] error.

    I'm having the same problem when trying to export the recorded process to Visio. All other formats works. 

    I have closed Visio before exporting (Using Visio 2019 Pro). 

    Any advice?

    Hi Fredrik,


    These are the current known issues/limitations we have regarding exports:

    • Only one template is available for PDD export.

    • Microsoft Visio must be installed if Visio map export is required.

    • Visio map will not export if the user has an instance of Microsoft Visio running on their system. It must first be closed prior to Visio export.

    • PDD will not export if there are special characters in the Version field of the Export menu.

    • Steps that are manually added to the process will not be taken into consideration in the time taken field of the PDD.

    • The time taken fields in the PDD may be incorrect when reordering steps in the process.

    • The contents numbering does not automatically update in the PDD, the user is required to manually update.
    If these do not apply to your particular issue, I would recommend raising a ticket with Customer Support to take a closer look.

    Thanks,

    If you already have exported the file with the same name earlier in the Downloads folder then it gives this error. I was trying it out and found this. Can you try to move old export files with the same name to a New Folder and then export.

    Let me know if it works or not.

Welcome to the Capture Community!

Blue Prism Capture is an intelligent process capture platform that simplifies the creation of process definition documents (PDDs) by combining task extraction and computer vision to auto-generate screenshots, step descriptions, process data, and process flows from a process owner demonstration. Customers can then optimize the process by adding or modifying steps and then extract their completed PDD, more quickly and accurately, into their preferred file format, including a Blue Prism process outline, which reduces time to automation even further.

Blue Prism Capture is an on-premise solution that combines task extraction and computer vision to auto generate screenshots, step descriptions, process data, and process flows, from a process owner demonstration of the as-is process. The captured flow can then be viewed and optimized by a process analyst, who can add further notes, definitions, and rearrange the steps in the flow, to produce a Process Definition Document (PDD) ready to be used by developers. Capture is free to use at the initial general release, with additional capabilities such as export to Blue Prism processes being developed in future releases.
Capture v3.0 is available at no extra costs to all Blue Prism customers, with the software available to download on the Blue Prism Product Portal.
