Versions actually do exist for the Chrome extension. You can verify this by viewing your extension at chrome://extensions or in the Chrome store. The version that I have is 9.0.6821, but the IT at my company thinks there might be a problem because the version they have whitelisted is 9.0.6421. The names of these two extensions are actually different though, so I’m not sure if they’re considered the same extension. The version I have is called “UiPath Web Automation”, while the version IT has whitelisted is called “UiPath”.
If you mean to say that we don’t have to worry about what version of the Chrome extension we’re using because UiPath Studio handles the installation, then I see where you’re coming from. However, the version/extension ID matters in my situation because my company’s Chrome extensions are managed by the system administrator. I couldn’t install the UiPath Chrome extension at all before IT whitelisted the correct extension ID.
Yes, UiPath successfully identifies elements in Chrome. However, I have to manually enable the extension at least once a day, sometimes multiple times a day. My company’s IT thinks the issue could be due to an internal inconsistency in our permissions system because they have a different extension ID on record. Therefore, I’m trying to confirm that the version that I’m using (version 9.0.6821, extension ID dkgencfabioofgdmhhjljpkbbchbikbh) is the most current version.If I can confirm that, then we can have IT overwrite any conflicting extension IDs with the extension ID I have.
