How to use same browser object in subsequent workflow


#1

Any help is appreciated! I am breaking down a large workflow into several smaller workflows. The first workflow logs into a browser app. I would like the 2nd workflow to select the area of the app to work in. I’m having trouble figuring out how to tell UiPath to use the browser from the previous workflow.

I’ve been trying to set an out going argument (Activities.Core.Browser type) from the first workflow and then pass that to the 2nd workflow.

It’s not working at all!

A verification error that pops up is: "The following overload groups are configured: Find Browser, Use Browser. Only one overload group should have its arguments configured.

I have no clue how to fix the verification and still pass the browser to the next activity.

Direction Please!!

Hi ,
Please remove the selector from the attach window/browser activity .
Either pass browser variable or selector .
You can’t have both .

To adding Dilip’s inputs, please use browser title and unique key with wild key character("*") in the selector to detect. That will pick the same browser. I am using in the similar way for my design.

if you can rely on selectors there’s no need.
