Seems like the button wasn't found. You'll need to test and probably edit the button selector, maybe something is dynamically changing every time you load the site.

Hello @Shashankpuli ,


I was facing similar problem for upload attachment. Please check below post for solution.


Also if button is not found then as mentioned by @fraenK, in button selector, select name instead of id. (ids can have dynamic values). I also selected id but with 'start with' operator.
