Follow this step-by-step process:

  1. Create a .TXT file containing the desired PowerShell script.

            For example, PS_Sample.txt

  1. In UiPath, use “Read Text File” activity and use the text file in the file name field
  2. Set the output variable using a string variable as shown-
  3. Add an “Invoke Power Shell” activity and set the values as shown below-
  4. Under the properties of “Invoke Power Shell” activity, use the Parameters field to add your arguments.

Hope this helps,

Happy Learning!

How to check/display the output of the executed script ?

Hi, @Deepak

 If you do have UiPath.Script.Activities installed, try a one-activity workflow of your own, with a single “Run Power shell script” pointing to the included .ps1 file.

Also, try executing the included .ps1 file outside of UiPath, i.e. from PowerShell.
