I have a desktop flow which runs in unattended mode. It logs into a third party portal and searches for users based on their user name (e.g. smithj).
However, when this search is undertaken, anything containing "smithj" is returned (so sometimes more than one person) e.g. smithj2, smithj3.
The purpose of the flow is to set this user to inactive, so what it does is search for the user name, and this displays a list of all users in that portal where that user name is contained, in the form of a table...
Let's say the user to be selected was smithj2... how can I tell the PAD flow to go to this record in the UI table and select the user which matches the input (smithj2) - by the way, each user has a hyperlink to their page which is in the User column
User User name
John Smith smithj
John Smith smithj2
John Smith smithj3

The selector should look something something like this: tr:contains("%User%") > td > a
