Blue Prism Interview Questions and Answers Pdf
1. What is Robotic Automation?
Robotic automation is a kind of automation wherever a machine or computer imitates human actions in creating rules-based tasks.
2. What is Blue Prism’s Robotic Automation?
Robotic Automation implies process Automation’s where computer software drives existing enterprise application software in the same way that a user does. Automation is a gadget or stage that operates other application software through the existing application UI.
3. What is Set Data Action (Internal-Work Queues Business Object) in blue prism?
Use the Set Data Action (Internal-Work Queues Business Object) to save the updated data collection back to the queue.
4. Is Blue Prism an RPA Tool?
Yes, Blue Prism is an RPA Tool.
5. What systems can Blue Prism robotically integrate?
Blue Prism has consolidated several years of experience of integration and various technologies into its software. The technologies employed are secure, reliable and robust. Instead of making new adaptors for each individual application Blue Prism has developed technology adaptors for all the technologies employed at the presentation layer, Windows, Web, Java, Green Screen/Mainframe and even Citrix.
This synthesizes with a wide group of dedicated tools that have been developed, means that we are confident in being able to link any system with on a button click. This proven application orchestration ability ensures that new processes can be quickly designed, built and tested without any influence on existing systems.
6. What hardware infrastructure do I need to run Blue Prism’s Robotic Automation Platform?
Blue Prism is uniquely designed for flexibility and to meet the most robust IT standards for IT operational integrity, security and supportability. This software can be used either as a front office or back office process, runs quite happily on a standard desktop in the front office or on any scale of systems for back-office processing.
7. What is process Studio?
A Blue Prism Process is created as a plan that looks like a business flow diagram. Processes are created in a zone of Blue Prism named Process Studio which looks similar to other process modeling applications) and uses standard flow diagram symbols and notation.
8. Is Blue Prism’s Robotic Automation Platform secure and auditable?
Security and auditability are incorporated into the Blue Prism robotic automation platform at multiple levels. The runtime environment is entirely separate to the process editing environment.
Approvals to design, create, edit and run processes and business objects are specific to each authorized user.
A full audit trail of changes to any process is kept, and comparisons of the before and after effect of changes are provided.
The log created at run-time for each process provides a detailed, time-stamped history of every action and decision taken within an automated process.
Our consumers tend to find that driving a process with Blue Prism gives them a lot more control when compared to an old-fashioned process, and from a yielding point of view assures that processes run continuously, in line with the process definition.
9. How can you manage web services from which server in Blue Prism?
Yes, we can you manage the web services from the Application Server.
10. What support do I need from Blue Prism Professional Services?
It genuinely depends on the potentials you already have in-house and the way you wish to work. Blue Prism can give a full extent of services from basic training, reinforce and mentoring with a view to quickly getting your team independently delivering ongoing automation, right through to a full turnkey package where we will take responsibility for delivering business benefit within agreed service levels.
11. Why Blue Prism?
High-level Robustness because of .NET customized code within the process automation
Provides Audit Logs enabling
Supports both internal and external Encryption/Decryption Keys
Automation process can be designed within IT Governance
12. What are Credentials in Blue Prism?
Use Blue Prism’s “Credentials” feature to control access to a file. (Process must request permission.)
13. What is the difference between thin client and thick client?
Thin client: Any application that we cannot get the quality properties while spying using any RPA tools.
For E.g. Citrix or any virtual environment.
Thick client: Any application that we get pretty handful of attribute properties using RPA tools
E.g. calculator, Internet Explorer
14. What is active queue configuration in Blue Prism?
Instead of creating sessions separately in Control Room and then moving to the queue management page to see the results, active queues allow you to set a target number of resources which should be working the queue, Blue Prism uses the active queue configuration to determine how to achieve that target.
Active Work Queues are only useful when running dozens of sessions for one process. When this is not the case, the benefits of Active Work Queues will not be realized.
15. Why do we use Parentheses in expressions in blue prism?
Parentheses must be used to include a Data Item in an expression.
16. Difference between Mainframe and Non-Mainframe Applications?
For Mainframe applications:
It’s a single screen and keyboard-based application.
There are separate set in-built commands supported by Blue Prism especially for mainframe applications
For non-mainframe applications:
It includes multiple screens
Control moves from one screen to another screen.
17. What are different spy modes?
We have only one spy mode-mainframe web based-HTML spy mode In Windows, we can use win32, region, aa and spy modes
18. How to make the data item as global.
A Data Item is visible only on its own page, on the properties forms will make the Data Item as global.
19. What is Environment variable?
An Environment Variable is a value that is available to all Business Objects and Processes, i.e. across the environment.
20. What are session variables?
Session Variables are particular to that instance of the Process. If 2 instances of the same process are continuing at the same time, they both have the same Session Variables, but the Session Variables values will be different.
From Control Room, we can view and modify session variables
21. What is the Excel Object used by Blue Prism?
MS Excel VBO is the Object used by Blue Prism
22. What are the stages?
Stages are Flow diagram elements that can be added to the diagram by clicking on the page but not by dragging from the toolbar.
23. What is the Application Object used by BP to add the data to the queue?
BP use Internal – Work Queues Application Object to put the CSV data into the queue
24. What is Wildcard match type in Blue Prism?
Wildcard match type to use the value of an attribute from the diagram rather than one in Application Modeller.
25. How to create an action in the blue prism and how can it be published?
As their name suggests, actions implement the logic of a business object. each action includes a set of stages along with data items holding information utilized by that action.
An action can be published, which lets it be called by methods and probably other software. An action can also remain hidden, making it available only to other actions in this business object. Whichever option is preferred, the action begins with a Start stage and finishes with an End stage, In between appear whatever stages are required to carry out the tasks this action performs.
26. What are Global Mouse Click and Global Send Keys in Blue Prism?
Global Mouse Click and Global Send Keys are examples of operations that need an active application.
27. What is a Blue Prism Process?
Since Blue Prism obtains applications through their user interfaces, a Blue Prism method acts much like a human user. Just as a person might interact with various applications to carry out a series of business steps, a Blue Prism process can invoke actions in several VBOs to carry out those same steps.
In some ways, a Blue Prism process is quite comparable to a VBO. Like a VBO, a process is represented in one or more pages, and each page comprises some number of stages and data items. There are major differences, however. The biggest one is the way in which pages can be entreated. In a VBO, any published page can be called at any time; the object exposes a set of operations that can be invoked in any order. A Blue Prism process, however, always begins at its Main page, and the pages it contains always execute in a determined order
28. How to create a Process in Blue prism and how does it work?
To create a process, a developer uses Process Studio. Just as processes are related to business objects, Process Studio is related to Object Studio
A process illustrated in Process Studio looks much like a common flowchart. As in Object Studio, each page in a process has its own tab, giving the analyst divide the process into logical groupings. Also like Object Studio, Process Studio enables its user to create logic graphically by gathering stages on a design surface. The tool adds a built-in debugger that allows passing through a process, arranging breakpoints, examining data items, and more.
One of the difficulties in working with business processes is changing them reliably. To help with this, Process Studio holds track of the earlier version of a process being edited. The user of the tool is then able to switch to a view that shows both the old and new versions side-by-side, letting see specifically what’s different. Blue Prism also provides a process history tool that enables tracking corrections to processes over time.
29. How can you set the priority for a work Ques in Blue Prism?
Setting the Priority for a Work Queue item is done when the item is first added to the queue using the Add To Queue action. The Priority of an item cannot be changed after it has been added to the queue.
30. What are the uses of Tags in Blue Prism?
Tags can be used when getting items (Using Get Next Item) from the Work Queue. You can filter the items to retrieve by the presence or absence of a specific tag, by giving the appropriate arguments to the Tag Filter input parameter of the Get Next Item action.
You can also use a combination of tags in the Tag Filter parameter, separated by semi-colons. For example, by setting the Tag Filter to be “+Work Type1;+Customer Type2;-Work Source1” the next item with the “Work Type1” and “Customer Type2” tags and without a “Work Source1” tag will be returned.
