Great, We can follow two approaches here

  1. Parallel activity

     Here you need to use a parallel activity
     One side of the parallel activity will be your actual business logic flow which you already have
     Other side one more sequence with logic to handle the popup 
  2. Global exception handler

     In this case whenever there is a popup there will be a system exception captured where it will hit this and you can just handle popup and continue the execution by retrying the activity which thrown system exception


@Nithinkrishna It I use Global exception handler.

What should I use in catches exception?

With try catch you can’t continue the flow when a popup comes instead you can stop your flow with the error.

To use global exception handler, you need to click on the new on top left and select Global Exception Handler

@Nithinkrishna ok, How to setting in Global Exception Handler ?

Great, After the log. You need to check if your popup exists using Element Exist activity and do click on ok or something which closes the popup.

And then just add retry to the assign at the end.

@Nithinkrishna Right ?

In the else block assign value, instead of retry just use continue.

Hope this should work.

I’m assuming you have commented or removed the default if block which was already present.
