This month’s tech article focusses mostly on the new UiPath 20.8 Preview Release. The UiPath 20.8 Preview consists of a lot of new features and improvements. Out of all the new features and improvements, this article focusses on two brand new features UiPath introduced in 20.8:
- UiPath Data Service
- UiPath Interactive Sign-in
Additionally, the article will also provide few insights on some additional, but fairly new addons that was introduced couple of weeks prior to 20.8 preview release.
- UiPath Diagnosis Tool — Not a part of 20.8 preview. This is an additional video done to explore a tool which comes in handy when troubleshooting issues.
- UiPath AI Fabric for Document Understanding — This segment focuses on how to use AI Fabric out-of-the-box models to process documents
UiPath Data Service
The UiPath Data Service is a new data storage service that brings you a powerful platform for no-code data modeling and storage capabilities. Similar to a usual database like SQL, UiPath Data Service acts as a centralized, secure, and reliable relational storage for your business data. It seamlessly integrated with your UiPath Studio and the robots allowing you to use the data models you built within the RPA workflows with a simple set of activities.
Learn more about how to use UiPath Data Service through the tutorial video series.

UiPath Interactive Sign-in
UiPath Interactive Sign-in provides you a personalized experience by allowing your UiPath Assistant to connect to your resources available across the UiPath platform. According to the previous versions, the UiPath Assistant connects to the Orchestrator through the Machine Key. With the new release, you can connect your Assistant using the same account you use to login to the UiPath platform.
Learn more about how to enable, and use interactive sign-in through the the below tutorial video.
As an additional contribution towards the community, I have also done a simple video explaining one of the other UiPath tools used for diagnosis purpose.
UiPath Diagnosis Tool
UiPath Diagnosis Tool is not a part of UiPath 20.8 release. This tool was available since 20.4 release. It is a standalone tool that enables better collection of diagnosis information for easy troubleshooting. The tools comes in bundled with the UiPath installation. However, if it is not available in your system, you can easily download it through the Resource Center in the UiPath Cloud Platform.
The video below describes its capabilities, usage, and why use of this tool is important.
