Google Account Selection Automation IOS

Post by dogus.sebcioglu » Thu Jul 01, 2021 8:10 am

Hello there,

While we were automating one of our applications, we noticed that the pop-up for selecting an account on the iOS side could not be automated. Do you have any plugin, a new feature or a solution for this?

Unfortunately, there is no workaround for system dialogs on iOS. As far as I know, iOS systems dialogs are not automatable with Ranorex (none UI test automation tool), because of iOS security restrictions. It's only possible to work with system dialogs (on certain level) with Android.

Being unable to get past iOS system prompts is a very discouraging limitation for mobile automation testing.
The original post was a couple years ago. Has any known workaround been discovered since 2021?
