How to configure outlook automation in Blueprism

0 votes

I am trying to send mails using outlook in BluePrism likewise in UIpath. I am new to Blueprism but I don't find an option as Outlook or Exchange Server. I have searched internet and came across a solution of installing Mapiex but I couldn't find the installable and it does not work with outlook64. So Blue Prism Process Studio does not have a out of the box solution for outlook automation.

If your  company is an accredited partner of Blue Prism, you can contact their support team to create a VBO that works for you
2. You can also try Email- POP3/SMTP
3. Installing MAPIEx Note( MAPIEx will not work with 64-bit Outlook)

1. The installer can be found on the Blue Prism portal under ‘Releases’ then by clicking the ‘addons‘ link. The installer file is called ‘BluePrismMapiEx1.1.15.msi‘(or the latest version)

The installation will include the following files:-

  • BluePrismMAPIExAutomation.dll
  • BluePrismMAPIExAutomation.tlb
  • BPMAPIEx.chm
  • MAPI32.dll
  • MAPIEx.dll
  • BPA Object – Blue Prism MAPIEx.xml (in the ‘VBO’ sub-folder)

These files will be installed into the “C:\Program Files (x86)\Blue Prism Limited\Blue Prism Automate” directory as part of the .MSI installation process

2. On 64-bit machines, Blue Prism will be installed in ‘C:\Program Files’, but MAPIEx gets installed into ‘C:\Program Files (x86)’ because it is a 32-bit program. If developing on a 64-bit machine, either modify the installation folder to match your Blue Prism installation, or copy the installed MAPIEx files into the Blue Prism installation folder after the installation has been done.

3. The easiest way to use MAPIEx is to Import the BPA Object – Blue Prism MAPIEx.xml

If you wish to work programmatically with the object, edit the MAPIEx VBO from within Blue Prism’s Object Studio. Select the ‘Initialise‘ tab, and then double-click on the Business Objects Page Information stage to reveal the properties for this page. Select the ‘Code Options‘ tab. Browse to the ‘BluePrismMAPIExAutomation.dll’ located in the correct installation directory, ensuring that the full path and filename is referenced in the ‘External References‘ list.

e.g. ‘C:\Program Files\Blue Prism Limited\Blue Prism Automate\BluePrismMAPIExAutomation.dll’

MAPIEx as an Internal and External Business Object

MAPIEx can be worked with an “internal” or “external” Business Object. Internal objects are imported into the Blue Prism database, and so are available to all users who have access to the database. External Business Objects are specific to the machine on which they are installed and are not visible by other users. It is generally recommended that the Internal Business Object is used in preference ot the External object.

To add MAPIEX as an External Business Object:-

  • Open the ‘External Business Objects’ tab in the Business Objects section of System Manager.
  • Create a new object, using the class name ‘BluePrism.WindowsAutomation.clsMAPIExAutomation’ in the ‘Add a new object’ field.
  • Click ‘OK’ to complete the process.
  • A new Business Object named “Blue Prism MAPIEx Automation (2005)” will be added.

I hope that helps

Thank you

Mapiex works only with 32bit outlook client and if you are using Microsoft exchange mail,then you can use EWS Managed API to directly access the server and get emails all you need to do is just install the API and include required DLLs.
