How to get a attribute of UI element?

Hi Community,
I have a problem with my ongoing case.

When adding UI elements in Chorme, the whole webpage will be identified as a document.
When adding UI elements in Edge, the login function will be identified as a iframe.
I can't control UI element to login.

But the webpage can be logged in with IE. I can add the whloe webpage as a UI element, and see an attribute names authkey. If I get the authkey after everytime I logged in, I can add it to the URL of Chrome or Edge, and then I can proceed to the next steps.

Is there any function to get the attributes(authkey) of UI elements?

Usually when it's not possible to capture UI elements (when dealing with iframes, for instance), the best approach IMHO is using a mix of navigating by images to select fields (using desktop recorder with images) and 'Send Keys' actions to fill them.

See, as reference, Images - Power Automate | Microsoft Docs

Long term I think it's more trustworthy than depend on IE, a browser that will go out of support in 2022.
