Hi, I’m currently working on a use case where I need to run my workflow virtually, currently I’m using Remote Desktop Connection for this, and I already have a workflow that’s fully functional.
This certain workflow is web-based, and on a high level, it starts and finishes off with:
- Opening chrome, going to a site.
- Signing in to that specific site.
- Doing a bunch of click activities.
- Signing out.
So my problem here is that I need to start the job and make the RDP work with it internally/virtually, it runs but the problem is that it keeps prompting the following error (This is the error that I get when I have the RDP minimized/disconnected when I start the job for the process, but if the RDP is actually open in my PC it’s working smoothly):
It seems like it’s looking for a screen to be able to find the elements, since it has image activities. I need to have the RDP session window open to make it error-free, when the actual intent of my use case is to have it running internally/virtually even if it’s minimized or disconnected from the actual RDP.
Starting the job from a physical hardware (not on RDP) works even if the actual Chrome is minimized, I wanna know why or how is it that this is possible in a physical hardware and not in RDP - it seems like RDP is looking for a physical screen to be able to proceed
So, is it possible to run my process on my RDP without it being actually present/open in my physical hardware?
I’m just looking for second opinions, I don’t want to stop with what I’ve been working on in this use case.
Thank you for reading, please tell me if it wasn’t clear.
