Element Selection for Dynamic Components

Use Case 1

When the application is extremely dynamic, most of the attributes will have numeric values which are going to keep changing frequently. In such scenarios, we will use either of the following or both if needed. 

1. Formatting with an asterisk "*" after removing the dynamic suffix or/and prefix part of the selector

For example: If the dynamic selector is[title="Dashboard029"],then we would first remove the suffix, format it with an asterisk as[title*="Dashboard"],and then verify if this is selector is pointing to a unique element. 

2. Using a combination of parent and child selectors to make the selector more accurate.

Make sure you follow the above-mentioned formatting.

Use Case 2

In List pages where the filter of data is needed, point to the filter section and provide the instruction per below.
