100% accurate website scraping
Website scraping of data from HTML, XML, AJAX, Java applets, Flash, Silverlight, and PDF.
Automate web login, navigation, clicking buttons, and links as well as form filling.
Powerful data transformation and deduplication with SQL or LINQ queries.
Pattern based data
Extract tabular and pattern-based data across multiple web pages.
Export to Excel
Load data to various outputs, including: Excel, CSV, Database, SOAP, REST, and .NET DataTable.
This is needed for drag-and-drop warriors, but its ultimate flexibility is preserved for .NET hackers.
Where and why is web data extraction used?
A lot of data is available online these days, but you don't usually have access to a web API that can extract it, and most websites do not offer a feature that enables you to export a copy of this data. To manually copy and paste it to a local file on your computer is error prone, boring, and time-consuming. UiPath can extract anything you see on a web browser.
This includes statistics, finance and stock info, real-estate data, product catalogues, search-engine results, job listings, social networks feeds, customer opinions, and competitive pricing. Within a corporation, you can find an even larger variety of data formats that UiPath can handle, including reports, dashboards, customers, employees, finance, and medical data that you need to transform and migrate.
How does Web Scraping with UiPath work?
UiPath goes beyond simple web-scraping techniques. It can automatically log in to a website, extract data that spans multiple webpages, and filter and transform it into the format of your choice before integrating it into another application or web service. In fact, UiPath resembles a real browser with a real user, so it can extract data that most automation tools cannot even see.
No programming is needed to create intelligent web agents, thanks to the drag-and-drop graphical designer, but the .NET hacker inside you will have complete control over the data.
Web Scraping at a glance
It provides 100% accurate web scraping: HTML, XML, AJAX, Java applets, Flash, Silverlight, and PDFs.
No programming is needed for drag-and-drop warriors, but ultimate flexibility is preserved for .NET hackers.
You can execute many data extractions in parallel for a high performance by scraping multiple sites at once.
Export to Excel/CSV/Database
The output of the data extraction activity is a .NET DataTable object, which you can simply push into an Excel file or a table on a database.
The UiPath Desktop solution has a fixed price, regardless of the data size.
This is available to automate web login, navigation, and form filling
Wizard to define data extraction
Using the simple wizard requires no coding or HTML understanding. You simply indicate what data you need to extract on the screen, and we do the rest to recognize similar data.
Table-based or pattern-based data
Our algorithm will correctly identify correlated data, regardless of whether the data is in a table or scattered across a web page. For example, you can retrieve product names, prices, and availabilities from our extraction.
Data transformation and deduplication with LINQ
LINQ gives you the power of SQL with in-memory table structures. You can sort, eliminate duplicates, and more generally perform whatever transformation is needed on the data.
