Content-Desc locator not working. / how to get unique id for IOS


#1

So our apps UI layout is done in Xaml, and have an AutomationID for their unique identifier. When capturing objects for Android, automationID is mapped to Content-desc, and this property is identified by Katalon. My issue is when I try to use this as the sole locator for the object, it doesn’t get recognized. Why is this, and what can I do to fix it?

As for iOS, the automationID isn’t getting picked up at all by Katalon. I’m aware that iOS needs different unique id from android. I’m wondering what that property would look like for iOS?

If anyone has any answers or reasons why I can’t locate objects this way please share.
