Step-by-Step Instructions to scrape product category pages by building a project in UiPath Studio

Here are the step-by-step instructions to scrape product category pages by building a project in UiPath Studio:

Step 1: Create a new project

Open UiPath Studio and create a new project. Give it a meaningful name and select the appropriate project settings.

Step 2: Navigate to the product category page

Use the “Open Browser” activity to navigate to the website and select the desired product category page. Set the browser type to “Chrome”, “IE” or any other supported browser.

Step 3: Scrape the product data

Use the “Data Scraping” activity to extract data from the product category page. This activity allows you to select the data you want to extract by highlighting the elements on the page. Once you have selected the data, UiPath Studio will generate a data extraction wizard to guide you through the process.

Step 4: Refine the data

Once the data extraction wizard has completed, you can refine the data by using the “Extract Structured Data” activity. This activity allows you to clean up the data and remove any unwanted information.

Step 5: Store the data

Finally, use the “Write Range” activity to store the data in a CSV file or any other data source that you prefer.

That's it! Once you have completed these steps, you should have a UiPath Studio project that can scrape product category pages.

Post a comment to let me know if you were able to use the above solution for any of your project ideas.

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training. The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page. Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2. The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1. The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the a

KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files. We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working. The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for. I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into. Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again? Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.
