UI Flow (preview) Timed out connection to chromium Edge/Chorme



I have created an instant flow that runs when triggered and uses web based UI Flow (Selenium IDE chrome pug in). The issue faced is that the connection is very inconsistent between the selenium IDE and browser. In our UI flow, it opens the browser and searches a specific content (in specified URL)and closes the browser. This happens in a loop but due to connection break it is unable to search and just tries a couple of times and then fails. Ideally this should take a single run but in this case we have to run it 2-3 times.


Also, It has stopped working with chromium edge and is only accepting chrome as browser.

Hi @v-devve ,


Could you share the specific configuration of Flow so that we can try to reproduce similar issues?

Also for configuring UI flow, please refer to the Online doc:

Re: UI Flow (preview) Timed out connection to chromium Edge/Chorme

Hi @v-bacao-msft 


So we used chromium edge (beta) to run the flow and the browser UI flow uses is google chrome. We have used Selenium IDE extension version (3.16.1)


Basically the flow uses a manual trigger along with the following connectors : 

1. List rows present in table (which gives the input data for the UI flow)

2. Apply to each followed by Run a UI flow for web that stores an element corresponding to the input value and Update row to store the results


The issue we're facing is the connection time out between the browser and selenium IDE due to which we don't get the complete results and hence have to re-run the flow.
