Unable to identify elements in web app

Hi guys,

I’m not able to automate clicks/read text from this site. FYI - it is in IE because the org I’m working in does not allow installing chrome/edge extensions.

Issue is, when I try to select the elements using UI explorer, I cannot select individual elements. I can only select big blocks (can only select 3 big horizontal canvas blocks (selector below) covering the whole width of the screen). “Get Text” for these returns blank.

I can automate input using keyboard tabs & get output using screen scraping from the big block. But there is one part of the page which is a table where some rows are not displayed (need to scroll down) so I cannot scrape that unless I am able to access the data table. But the website is preventing me from accessing any elements beyond the canvas elements.

I have pasted the full selector for the deepest level block which I can access (have hidden some information that might be sensitive). Can anybody suggest anything I can do to access the elements further down? I think the issue is because this website is being protected by a security layer that prevents us from accessing the elements, but want to check if there is any way around this.

With out browser extansions you can not access and do browser automation…


Thanks shaikmdrafi, to clarify - I’m automating in IE, so I don’t need to separately install browser extensions, is that correct?
