As an automation tool, the tool itself should provide the possibility to easily automate itself. An exposed API would be nice to access Blue Prism internal data, information, configuration and automate certain tasks and generate own reports if desired.

I want to avoid querying BP repository, which is very likely to change between versions and have to reverse engineer SQL. Having an API will provide a stable and efficient way to access all data.
Additional functions on top of this data would allows various types of automation.

Hi! I'd also love to see an API, but the SQL structure is rather easy to figure out. For an example, see some SQL reports I've made. Best, Kristian

Fantastic, many thanks Walter.

All - the benefit of linking out to a discussion thread in this way is that it will allow you to attach pictures, documents, etc that articulate your use cases in more detail, should you wish.

(We are working on improving the ideas portal to accept document uploads too.)
