External start of stored UR-scripts

UR5e, URSoftware 5.5.1

Hey everyone,

can the UR-API be used to load and start programs that are located on the robot(stored UR-Scrips)?

Thank you in advance

The dashboard server can be used to do this using a combination of the load, start, stop commands.
You can find a PDF file with the list of available commands here.

In the case where you need to load .script files you can create a robot program containing a Script node and have it linked to the script file you wrote.

FYI. The robot must be in remote control mode for this to work.

I´m doing like this and work ok! And I update the script by the SFTP! Works well
