Abstract

This paper presents a tool, called Action Logger, for recording user interface (UI) logs, i.e., logs of user interactions with information systems. By generating output suitable for process mining, the tool aims to introduce process mining methods, techniques, and tools for supporting Robotic Process Automation (RPA) activities, e.g., robot discovery and implementation. Action Logger offers unique capabilities, including logging relevant user actions at a granularity level suitable for RPA, data-awareness, and context-independence.
