Could someone give me some input? I am considering migrating files to a new system through the front end (no POST method available). I’ve built two POCs on a demo environment:
- Send keys: loop through the location (URL) of each group of files, and submit them at once (concatenated string).
- Send file: group loop each group of files based on their final location (URL) and loop upload them.
After a few loops, both send keys and send file path run successfully in the workflow, but they fail actually to upload the files on the front-end.
Am I picking the wrong selector, or how could I improve it? (see in the workflow 3 selector alternatives I’ve used).
I’m grabbing at the low hanging for now - I checked your WF and at first sight this looks very reasonable. The selector
//input[contains(@id, 'html')] looks generic enough (no randomly assigned IDs, etc.)
Did you try to enable the “Wait up to X seconds” option and give it a few seconds? It’s quite likely that the
<input> is not yet in the DOM when you try to access it, and thus the execution fails.
Probably that already fixes it?
I tried, but it didn’t work.
Looking deeper, I noticed that the files show on the UI as “uploading,” but they aren’t (in green on the screenshot). I tried to manually upload
package.json and it works.
Mmmmh, what’s the error message you see when the workflow fails? Is there any more details in the logs?
Hi, no I couldn’t solve the issue. We tried running the workflow on my colleague’s laptop, and it ran super smoothly with no issues, so maybe a cache issue. The final version of the flow included two loops (one for folders, and one for files inside the folder). I wanted to add a way to double-check the successful upload of files (thought of a try-catch) but we did a GET request to see what files are uploaded instead.
