Hey,

So we have bought a license and deployed a sample RDA application. It's a simple process, including just one activity with START and END points connected to the flow.

When I launch the runtime, it finishes the task but I can still see it running in the background in Task Manager. Is this a bug? Or am I doing anything wrong here?

Hi Hiren,


The process need to terminate properly, to stop running the host in the background, 
use the Terminate component on some event to close the host.


Thanks & Regards,

Okay, alright. We can use terminate.

But the question here really is, why there is a need to terminate it? Shouldn't it terminate itself after reaching the End point?

Hi Hiren,

As this is RDA, user can perform multiple actions as per their requirement and we can't end the automation if users completes one action. For example, let's say i have 3 to 4 buttons on UI and for each button click event i write some logic to perform some automation. In this case if we end the automation user can use only single action at any point of time. Hope this helps!!. Ideally on close of the RDA window, user needs to call Terminate to end the session. We have shown the same in a Main activity when you create any new RDA project.

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks for confirming.

So the terminate step is not necessary for RPA? And intelligent supports only messages, is there a way to introduce radio buttons/checkboxes or dropdown?

Hi Hiren,

Yes, in RPA you don't have to call Terminate explicitly but you can use it to end the automation with a proper exception message. For example if RPA automation is looking for some input files and if those are not found, you can terminate the automation with a message saying "There are no input files found".

Didn't understand your query. Are you asking if the mentioned controls are available in RDA design form? If yes we have those controls.

Thanks & Regards,
