Hello UiPath Community,
I recently ran into an issue with one of my automation that is in production. The robot logs into service now in chrome and then must navigate to a specific report by searching using the search bar. I have the robot type into the search bar and then hit the magnified glass to search. The type into uses “SimulateType” and the click uses “SimulateClick”. Both of these actives executed correctly a month ago, when the automation last ran. All of a sudden these actives have stopped working.
Here is the part that I do not understand. When I already have ServiceNow up and just run the type into and click portion of the automation, it works correctly. When I run the automation from the beginning, where it logs into ServiceNow and navigates to the reports page, it fails. It’s almost as if the robot looses connection with the web browser (chrome). The automation faults after these 2 actions, since the selection is not found due to the search not executing properly. I have tried changing the actives to the defaults and SendWindowMessges with no success. I am unable to attach my workflow due to sensitive information. I was wondering has anyone experience this with their automation?
I am running the automation using robot version 2018.2.3 and chrome version 69.0.3497.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)
