Issues uploading files into a web application

Hi All,


I'm reasonably new to the Power Platform, and I'm attempting to create an automated solution for uploading files into a web application.


Through Power Automate, I've created a Selenium script to upload the files into the application, however the script is failing at the point it attempts to specify the file for upload.  The application has a ‘Choose File’ button that we can interact with via Selenium, however once the resultant ‘Open’ child window opens to allow the filename to be specified, then Selenium doesn’t seem to recognise the child window and therefore can’t interact with it.


I’ve done some investigation (with the help of Google and this forum) and noticed that many people have encountered a similar issue, and it's often been resolved by enabling the 'Allow access to file URLs' setting in the Chrome browsers ‘Selenium IDE’ extension.  Unfortunately this hasn't worked for me.


Could anyone suggest what the issue could be, and how I could resolve it?


Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have!
