Hello Developer Team,
UiPath studio selectors service has a serious bug that should be fixed soon.
In observation we found that UiPath robots only work fine if a website is not already opened. If a website is already opened ? Then again its opened in any robotic process ?
Robot will swtich to work on old website (which is already opened ) instead of working on newly opened webpage.
Suppose… If we already have opened sellercentral.amazon.in chrome browser. And suppose new order’s page is open in amazon. and the page have 50 orders. Due to any reason we did not close or refresh this order tab 4- 5 hours. And meanwhile we get 25 more order. Mean total is 75 orders now.
Suppose if we have built a bot to schedule orders for pick up… and now we run this bot.
What should we expect? We expect that it should schedule all 75 orders. Right ?
Oh no… But its don’t. Its will only schedule that earlier 50 orders.
What ? Its seems buggy Where is the issue ?
On investigation we found that…the bot just open new order page. And leave it. And its selector auto switch to earlier opened website. which is not refreshed in last 5 hours. and only have 50 orders loaded.
That earlier opened website & newly opened website both have same selector. UiPath will always work on selectors which is earlier opened. But all users expect… it should work on newly open website.
I think UiPath developer should add few code in open browser / navigate activity which make the selectors to work on active window if more then one same selectors available.
Tested on Studio Version 2019.12, Chrome browser latest version. We tested it on amazon and a lot other websites. And found the same issue.
