ui flow login

Hi, 

On this website https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/ui-flows/create-web it says:

Temporary user profile for playback

Selenium IDE recordings are done with the current user's profile, but playback is done using a temporary user profile. This means that websites that need authentication may not ask for credentials during a recording session, but the authentication steps will be needed during playback.

To address this, the user needs to manually edit the script to insert the commands needed for the login process.

I am struggling exactly with this. 

 

After building my webapp flow, I tested everything in Selenium IDE where things work perfectly. 

I even made sure that I am logged out from any website/application when I recorded my webapp flow. 

In other words, my webapp tests open a website where Selenium logs in and then executes the steps. 

So far so good. 

 

Problem:

If I add my webapp flow into a normal one then the login does not work. 

There seems to be a refresh of the login page and things get stuck immediately. 

 

Can somebody provide some hints how to overcome this issue?

 

Many thanks, 

 

Ludwig

Re: ui flow login

Hi @lreinhard7,

 

The browser you tested before was successful because it cached your authentication and password, so when you tested the UI Flow, you could use the information you already had. But testing in a normal one (presumably a new browser) results in an error because the authentication information is gone, or because there is no way to invoke the information.

 

The UI Flow still in preview, it still some limitation exist and some feature need to perfect, please pay attention to wait it rolling out.
