EWS Mail objects

  • 1.  EWS Mail objects

    Posted 14 days ago
    HI all
    I am new to RPA and new to community. I have experience in C# development but I have been given responsibility of RPA using Blue prism.

    My first task is to migrate a process from reading mails from an on prem Mail service to a cloud Mail service.

    The objects that the current process is using is EWS Mail Object. I have searched for documentation on how to use these objects but I cannot find anything online.

    Can anyone help me with this please?

    The object takes 4 parameters, username, password, Mail ID and url of web mail address

    Thanks in advance for help on this

    @Andrey Kudinov seems to be the developer of EWS.
    You can find his github project on GitHub - aikudinov/BlueprismVBO: Blueprism VBO collection.
    It'd be nice to contact him.​

    You have experienced in C# development, as you said.
    Then you may look into code stage in each Action page of the VBO.
    They are coded using C# and you must be familiar with them.​​​

    EWS VBO on DX and EWS VBO ​on github are different, which one are we talking about?

    First one should support cloud afaik. Second one is onprem only, and although it should be possible to make it work with oauth2, EWS managed api itself is deprecated and you'd better use Graph api I guess.

    p.s. Andrey Kudinov is not going to reply here, since blueprism decided to block russian accounts. You can try contacting him on github issues, but I doubt they use Blueprism now.

    Hi,

    The use case I am having is that a process we have is using the ON PREM one however we are moving to cloud so would prob need the first one you are talking about.
    Can you help me on how I would access the VBO on DX please?

    HI

    Thank you for this but I cannot find anything here.

    I have done some research and I see Basic Auth is not supported with outlook EWS anymore so I need to use OAuth 2. Is there a VBO for this functionality that you know of?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi all

    I got a solution for this. I will use MS Outlook VBO.
    Thanks all for your help on this and from my experience here I would advise anyone else in this situation NOT to use EWS as this will eventually be fully deprecated by microsoft.

    Thanks all

    EWS is still a good option for Exchange on-premise if you don't want to depend on Outlook.
    For an Office365 it is advised to use Graph API:
    MS Outlook VBO (interop) is a good option in both cases too, although a bit slower and has to be exclusive run mode afaik.

    Hi @Alhana Starbreeze

    Thanks for this. Yes I tried GRAPH API and very good but it is not supported by Blue prism​ so my org wont approve.

    On another note I did have issues with MS Outlook but fixed now but could you explaine the "excluesive run mode" you mentioned above? Or point me to articel about this?

    Thanks in advance​

    Exclusive run mode means that process/VBO can't run at the same time with other process on the same bot.
    Here is video by Dave about it: RUN MODES in Blue Prism

    p.s. Blueprism mostly marks all their VBOs as exclusive regardless, whether it is needed or not, so you wont be using it, unless you fix it yourself and know what you are doing.
