Process database

To store processes, Enterprise for BP® Capture uses a combination of a database (process.db) and an image store on the user's machine.

Database location

Process location

Processes are stored on the local machine only. There is no external connection for transferring images to an external location. Saved processes are stored in:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Blue Prism\Capture\user_data

This location stays the same even if the install location is changed.


All processes are saved in the same database (process.db) in JSON format. Images are stored separately from the processes. They are stored in:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Blue Prism\Capture\user_data\images

See Image Storage for more details.

Delete a process

To delete a process:

  1. Click Open in Capture. The Load saved process window displays.

  2. Select a process to delete from the list in the Load saved process window.

  3. Click Delete from the available options in the Load saved process window.

    Deleting a process will remove it from the database.

Back up a database

The process database is not automatically backed up by Capture. You can back up the process database and images any time by saving a copy of the user_data folder in:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Blue Prism\Capture

Import a database

Importing a new database overwrites all current processes. Save any processes you wish to keep before importing a new database.

To save current processes, click Export in Capture and select the Capture process (.json) option.

Close Capture before importing a new database and images. To import a new database, you will need to overwrite the process.db file and images folder in: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Blue Prism\Capture\user_data
