Getting SHA1 Hash

I’m working on the Academy 2.0 assignments, and I can’t seem to figure out how to get the SHA1 hash from . I try to do a “Get Text” activity and it is giving me a SelectorNotFoundError for the <webctrl id='result-sha1' tag='SPAN' /> which should yield the hash itself. At first, I thought it was an issue with the AJAX request, but even when I try an “Element Exists” it still fails. I can’t see anything with the selector that would cause this failure, is there something I’m missing?

@LogoSys use full selector it will work

Hi @LogoSys,

The selector is correct.

Make sure you used Attach browser or Open Browser inside you used the Get Text activity.

Use UIExplorer to get the full selector and then paste it in the Get text activity.

use attach browser outside Get Text

I had the same problem. I was recommended two solutions that both worked:

  1. Use Chrome with an adblocker instead of Internet Explorer
  2. Move the get text activity outside the browser sequence

Hope that helps.


Thank you, It worked.

It worked with Chrome for me!!! Thanks!! It was impossible with internet explorer, it was working on the separate workflow but not when invoked on the whole process, with chrome it works fina always!! :smiley:
