SharePoint Custom Activities Package

Custom Activity

Summary: 

A custom activities package that allows the management of List Items, Library Files and Folders, Users, Groups and Permissions.New activities and a new authentication mode have been added in 1.5.2

One of the main functionalities that the latest update contains is the WebLogin Authentication Mode (found under the SharePoint Instance Type property) which can potentially authenticate the robot even if the SharePoint instance is using 3rd party identity providers or if only multi factor authentication is possible. This happens by prompting the user to insert their credentials the first time the workflow is executed, afterwards which the robot stays authenticated. Given that this mode requires human input, it is recommended that this authentication mode is used only for attended automation
