List of exposed processes

  • 1.  List of exposed processes

    Posted 7 days ago
    Hi,

    We have a requirement to read all the list of exposed processes in Blue Prism. Currently we parse http://localhost:8181/ws/ using HTML parser in Java. But we are concerned if this a fool proof approach or not. Is it guaranteed that the HTML structure of that page remains same? if not, is there a way to get list of exposed processes?

    We tried http://localhost:8181/proclist but it returns all the existing processes
    We also tried created a process at Blue Prism side, which reads list of processes from DB where wspublishname is not null. But with this approach, once exposed but now concealed processes are also shown in that list.
    Please advice.

    Hi Shashank,

    Thank you for the suggestion. One thing I noticed is that, the Get Processes action returns processes that are once exposed but later concealed as well. Is there any way to get only currently exposed processes?

    Hi Bala,

    I couldn't replicate your issue. Are you able to step through the Get Processes action and see what you get in the "Results" collection?

    Hi Bala,

    See Processes/objects – exposure
    https://bpdocs.blueprism.com/bp-6-9/en-us/frmWebServiceExpose.htm

    http://[machinename]:[port]/ws/
    is the URL listed in the documentation for confirming exposed web services, so I would say it is stable. Out of caution, I'd still recommend re-testing your approach during version upgrades, changing port settings, or enabling/disabling transport security (SSL/TLS certificates).

    Hi Patrick,

    Thanks for the suggestion, currently we use the url that you have suggested and parse it using a HTML parser. My question is, is there a better way to get the exposed processes list in another format, say json or even xml?
