Hello and very happy new year to all.
I created my scripts using only the xpath of the elements. The problem is that I often have regressions, ie scripts that have already worked no longer work. Do you have any idea about these regressions?
Thanks in advance!
I have no idea on why it already worked and no longer work. Could you put more detail to explain it?
If XPath doesn’t work anymore, there may be two problems:
- Your developers do significant changes in UI code every release
- Your XPaths are poorly written, so even a small code change breaks the path
In first case, there is really nothing much to do and I would consider terminating whole test automation in your project (as maintenance itself requires a huge effort), in second case I would recommend this article:
@Ouleye_BARRO Can you provide more details on WHY your tests are failing? You mentioned that all of your locators are XPaths, which is fine (mine are too ). Are you saying that all of your XPaths are now failing? Thanks for any more info you can provide.
