Could not be uniquely identifying object using id/name

Post by praneet » Tue Mar 17, 2020 1:34 pm

I have used id/name for objects identification, even though search object taking more than 2sec and showing yellow exclamatory mark showing
'One element found for current selection. The parent repository folder for this item could not be uniquely identified'. How to make object with unique identification and less search times.
Ranorex Version-9.1.0

At first, please update Ranorex to more recent 9.2.1 or 9.3.0. Only these versions are currently supported. 9.1.0 is obsolete.
At next, please upload a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) of the problematic element and full xpath you are using, so anyone here can review these two critical pieces and eventually, suggest the solution. Without, at very least, a Ranorex snapshot, there is not much anyone here can do or suggest.

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
