Hi All,

 

I just want to know, as each and every day, the content authoring team is doing the same job, will not be possible to automate the content authoring job by using UI path automation?

 

Kindly advise. If yes, how to do it?

Hi @Suvendu88 

 

Identify the content authoring tasks that are repetitive and time-consuming. These tasks are good candidates for automation.

 

And create a custom workflow this with the help of developer, 

Or you can try this  
Install UiPath Studio, the design environment for creating automation workflows.

 

Create Automation Workflow:

Launch UiPath Studio and start building an automation workflow for the identified content authoring task.

 

UiPath provides a visual interface where you can drag and drop activities to simulate the actions you want the bot to perform.

Record Actions:

UiPath allows you to record your actions within AEM's user interface. This means you can perform the content authoring task manually while UiPath records the steps. Then, UiPath can replay those steps automatically.

Use Data Input:

UiPath workflows can use data inputs to customize the automation process. For instance, you can set up the workflow to process different content based on input data.

Handle Error Cases:

Implement error handling logic in your automation workflow. If something unexpected occurs, the bot can react appropriately.

Test Thoroughly:

Test the automation workflow extensively in a controlled environment to make sure it performs the intended actions correctly and efficiently.

Deployment and Monitoring:

Once your automation workflow is working as expected, you can deploy it to your production environment.

Monitor the automation process to ensure it continues to work as intended and to address any changes in AEM's user interface that might affect the workflow.

Keep Content Authors Informed:Communicate with your content authoring team about the automation process and its benefits. Make sure they understand how to use the automated workflows and when they can rely on them.

Continuous Improvement:

Continuously assess the effectiveness of your automated workflows and look for opportunities to optimize and enhance them.

UiPath can greatly streamline content authoring tasks, it's important to choose the right tasks for automation. Complex workflows or tasks that involve creative decision-making might not be suitable for automation. Always consider the user experience and the potential impact of automation on content quality.

Thanks

hi @Suvendu88 ,

It depends on the content the team is handling. If the authoring team is looking for some feed and the creating articles/pages based on that the process can be automated by different mechanisms like workflows, schedulers all triggering certain service that can create page and add appropriate content as per the design.

 

In case of assets there are certain capabilities that are on offer from adobe like the creative cloud powered content automation capabilities.

You can refer the below links to know more in case you are looking for those.

Thank you @sherinregi for your inputs. I am particularly interested in automating tasks using "UI Path." Is this a feasible possibility?

Like - Clients furnish a Word document containing content, metadata, and SEO details. Through the utilization of "UI Path automation," these specifics are extracted from the Word document. The process involves selecting the appropriate template, populating all page properties, selecting the suitable components, and filling in all content accordingly to construct the webpage.

 

Your insights on this would be great help.
