I’m trying to implement a test automation project in web applications (using Chrome).
I can run my tests sucessfully in headless mode, but I need to save a video of the execution of the test, but I don’t know how?
I’m using RecordDesktopVideoScope activity, but it in headless mode it just record my screen, (and not the execution of the test).
In Orchestrator I configure Job Recording with video Type but, I never see the video in logs of the execution:
Can you help me, please?
Is there a possibility to run it normally instead of headless? As with headless, you won’t have the browser visible and therefore nothing to record on video.
I coul’d execute normally, the main goal of headless mode is to save resources of machine and allow to work at the same time in that machine if I need.
Other tools allow, to do that and I wan’t to understand if there’s this possibility to do in UiPath, or if I’m doing something wrong.
Thanks in advance.
How would you do that in other tools?
I don’t how that works, but for example in Cypress I just need to configure a variable in a config file.
In UiPath it’s called running it in the background, but background processes cannot do UI Automation.
- Recording on available in jobs…extended menu or job execution menu…
- The job recording in orchestrator will svae only last 3 minutes by default
Did you properly check if it is recording
I don’t think headless chrome recording can be done unless you prepare your own recording function.
