Android Automation

Custom Activity


Custom activities for Android automation in UiPath through Appium.

The Android Automation Activities allows users to automate UI actions like tapping, swiping, entering/getting text, as well as taking a screenshot on an Android emulator or physical device using UiPath Studio and Appium, a test framework for mobile devices. The Android Emulator Scope will handle the connection between the device and Appium, as well launch the app/activity you'd like to run on the device. UI actions can be performed by dragging and dropping the appropriate activity into the scope and entering the selector/coordinates of the target UI element. Through this activity, you will be able to create workflows that interact with mobile applications and mobile browsers with relative ease.

Usage of this activity package relies on several 3rd party software. They are as follows:
  • Appium
  • Java Development Kit
  • Android SDK (and Device/Emulator)
  • NodeJS (npm)
For more information, download the guide under Resources.
