Control Flow Activities

Please note: We will shut down the Helpdesk soon. Please update your releases to Hyland RPA 22.2. To view the latest documentation for Hyland RPA 22.2 release visit Hyland Docs.

The Control Flow activities can be divided into four categories: Loops, structure, errorhandling and decisions.





Break Loop

Performs a break in the loop.

For each Loop

This loop iterates through all selected elements of a certain type and executes the activities inside the body.

For each Loop with Index

Works like the For each Loop and gives the user the ability to access the index.

For each Row

This loop iterates through all rows of a table and executes the activities from inside the loop for each of them.

For each UI Element

This loop iterates through all selected elements and executes the activities from inside the loop for each of them.

For each Key Value Pair

Loops over all key value pairs in the selected dictionary.

Retry Scope
