How to set permanent user profile for Selenium - Chrome/Edge profile

When you are recording/running a test via Selenium browser profiles in Rapise - by default a new user profile is created when new instance of a browser is launched. It means that new browser instance starts with empty cache, no cookies, etc. Sometimes it complicates testing. If you are testing a Web application that requires SMS/Email code to authorize a browser then you will have to do it every time. Automation of  input of SMS/Email codes may be really hard. It is much easier to authorize a browser manually once and then run tests for long period of time. To make it work you will need to configure a permanent user profile for the browser used for testing. Learn how to do it for Chrome/Edge from this article.

How to define a profile for Web Application in Rapise

Each web application is unique in terms of assigning attributes to elements and this complicates the process of generating XPath locators. Some applications assign dynamic IDs to elements, some use ARIA attributes and some do not, some values of class attribute have meaning related to element position and some just used for styling . There are also cases when an app contains hidden DOM layers which stack on top of each other. So usage of same set of attributes for generating XPath is not efficient and may lead to weak locators that break after application reloading or slight modification. To cope with these problems Rapise introduces Web App Profile. It is a simple JSON file of a defined structure that instructs Rapise how to build XPath for elements in a particular application. From this article you will learn how to define a profile for your web application.
