Native support for automating web pages and applications in Google Chrome, the Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox web browsers is provided in Blue Prism® using Blue Prism browser extensions. The extensions allow Blue Prism to interact with web pages and applications presented in these browsers, so that business processes that rely on such applications and web pages can easily be modelled.

The Blue Prism extensions establish connectivity with Blue Prism, allowing Blue Prism to interact with web pages in Chrome, Edge, and Firefox, so data can be exchanged and elements automated. The communication is established either via a fixed browser port (31924) or a port dynamically selected from the ephemeral range (see Browser automation via ephemeral ports versus fixed ports for more details).

  • From 6.10.3 onwards, the communication between browser extensions and Blue Prism depends on the deployment scenario. See 6.10.3 upgrade notices for more details.

There are three Blue Prism browser extensions:

  • Chrome – Used to automate applications and web pages in Chrome.
  • Firefox – Used to automate applications and web pages in Firefox.
  • Edge – Used to automate applications and web pages in Microsoft Edge.
