Generate Error

This action generates an error.

Useful if a situation has been detected that should be considered an error, such as if an error page has been received from a web site when trying to perform a certain action on the site. Using the Generate Error action, a robot error can be generated that will be handled like other errors that occur during the execution of a robot.

If it is just important to log that a certain situation has occurred and then continue execution along the current branch, consider using Write Log instead.


The Generate Error action can be configured using the following properties:

Error Message:
The error message to include in the error. The error message can be specified in several ways using a Value Selector. If no error message is specified, a default error message will be used.
