Hello Nisala,

the "Element Not Found" exception indicates that the bot was unable to find the web element based on the indicated search criteria. Make sure that you are enabling the appropriate "Element Search Parameters" and that the parameter value matches the site's element.

Usually the search parameter is set by indicating the targeted element�s xpath on the Xpath field. The xpath can be modified as needed by using the site�s HTML information, also variables and wildcards can be included.

The search criteria can be easily extracted through the Native Element Recorder. Another option is to obtain the xpath manually, by inspecting the element on your web browser.

Hello Nisala,

Please, let me know if you are using the Selenium Browser Commands or the Native Browser Commands. If you are using the latter, the shared error indicates that the Chrome Extension has not been setup properly.
