Testsigma provides a UI Identifiers page which is helpful for the testers to manage UI Identifiers without modifying the Test Scripts directly while avoiding duplicates.


We can navigate to the UI Identifiers page by going through:

Applications > Select Application > Select Version > UI Identifiers

Landing Page
