Changing automationName from "UiAutomator2" to "UiAutomator1"

Hey UiPath Community,

am working on a mobile automation project using UiPath Studio Pro Community and am facing a problem with the mobile device manager.The problem is I want to use UiAutomator1 because am facing UiElements’ interaction issues when using UiAutomator2(can’t set text in fields, can’t tap on some fields) , and when I tried to change it in the desired capabilities in the device settings as shown bellow :


I found out that the POST request sent to the appium server contains ‘UiAutomator2’ instead of the one I set earlier :


Am using :
UiPath Studio v2021.4
Appium Server v1.21.0

So have anyone faced this problem before and if so how did they change this “automationName” ?

Any help would be appreciated :pray:
