Fixes and minor improvements

Description of change


Blue Prism Enterprise 7.2.2 has been released to address the security vulnerability CVE‑2023‑4863. To address a potential issue related to the manipulation of web-based image elements of the type LibWebP, the version of the Electron library in use within the product has been updated. The Selenium web driver has also been upgraded to version 4.14.1 to address the vulnerability.

For full details of CVE‑2023‑4863, see Security Vulnerabilities on the customer portal, and the National Vulnerability Database.



An issue, introduced in Blue Prism 7.2.0, where exceptiontype and exceptionmessage were no longer populated as expected in BPASession has been fixed. These values are now populated with the correct information from the Exception stage that resulted in the termination of the session.

BP-18277 (BP-17267)

An error, introduced in Blue Prism 7.2, no longer occurs when handling binary data, for example, when attempting to fetch an object with a binary data type and store it in a data item.

BP-18274 (BP-16857)

An issue has been fixed where, when attaching or launching a target application, the corresponding memory used in the attach or launch attempt was incorrectly retained. If the attach or launch was retried many times in quick succession, this could lead to an out of memory error. All memory used for the attach or launch of a target application is now appropriately disposed of.



An issue has been fixed when automating web pages where, when clicking a button on a page that resulted in a confirm dialog displaying, no response would be received by Blue Prism from the browser extension, and the operation would time out.



An issue has been fixed when using an interactive client connected to an application server using WCF communication modes. Previously, if the user expanded the list of resources in Control Room and scrolled down so that the default node was no longer visible at the top of the list, selecting Collapse all caused the entire tree to disappear, including the default node.



An issue has been fixed where Blue Prism Enterprise became unresponsive and terminated abruptly when multiple business objects in the same automation were attached to an application using an external application manager mode.


Browser extensions

Browser extensions allow Blue Prism to interact with web pages and applications presented in a browser, so that business processes that include such applications and web pages can easily be modeled.

How updates are applied

The latest browser extensions are automatically installed with Blue Prism. Browser extensions that are made available after a release are automatically updated when the browser is loaded if there is an active internet connection. Alternatively, if your devices are not connected to the internet, updates can be pushed per user to each device manually. See the Chrome and Edge integration guide for details of how to install the extension using an offline package.

Browser extension release notes

Description of change Reference
Error messages regarding issues with invoking or inserting JavaScript specific to the Selenium web driver now display in the expected format. Previously, such messages did not include paragraph breaks, making them difficult to read. BP-18309 (BP-18271)

An issue (related to Edge version 120 and later) has been resolved where JavaScript was not successfully invoked when running an automation if the browser name returned did not match the expected value. In the event of the browser name not matching the expected format, automations will now run successfully.
