Hi @Reenka_M

Can you try to use the browser’s developer tools to inspect the HTML structure of the webpage. This will allow you to identify unique attributes or classes associated with the UI elements you want to anchor. Look for elements such as IDs, classes, or other attributes that can help you locate and interact with the desired elements.


Yes, or you can use UiExplorer to refine your selector
