Hello everyone, do you know any alternatives of element exist for Unattended Robots since the selectors can’t find the pop-up of downloads I try to use a simple “click” button for a quick fix, but the issue arrives when the document takes a while to download completely. In Studio is applied a retry scope but after a period of time it reach its timeout. In Attended everything works normal but with unattended for some reason it cannot find the UI Element of element exist only with image exist but with “image exist” it takes a lot of time. The “image exist” is the only option for this scenarios of Robots?
The options I use for element exist are:
“Open Browser activity”, properties “Simulate” and drop the element exist (doesn’t work)
Normal Element Exist checking in Studio with “Highlight Element” then run Unattended (doesn’t work)
“CV Element Exist” (doesn’t work)
“Wait For ready” property of element exist “Interactive” or “Complete” (doesn’t work)
Other options without element exist:
“Try Catch activity” drop in both “try” and “catch” the button of download (doesn’t work)
“Activate Activity” (doesn’t work)
You should be working in modern, and use the Check App State activity. Adjust the timeout as necessary to wait for the download to complete. It’s also possible you could use the Wait for Download activity to wait for the file to appear before moving on.
If you’re having selector issues running unattended, I would tell you that humans shouldn’t be logging into the server as the robot account. If they do, they must SIGN OUT - they can’t just close the RDP window. I suggest logging into the server as the robot account then signing out to make sure.
