Click behavior on Tableau dropdown menu

I am trying to automate logging into tableau site from tableau desktop.

When I use the click activity (modern and classic) it will not focus on the menu item.

Here is a graphic depiction of what it is doing.

Hey @bob.nims

Try choosing the entire drop-down container using Ui-Explorer and use visual tree to find the option in the drop-down post which it can be right clicked and made as target

Hope that helps


Hi @bob.nims,

Can you choose the search field? If you can, you can experiment by selecting that field and then changing the listed fields to a dynamic aaname or innertxt.


It acts like it will work then when I run it… it fails to click it.
