Starting Appium Desktop Inspector to inspect Android/iOS Apps from TestObject


Once you have started the Inspector session, we can Inspect Apps in Appium to get the UI Identifiers easily. Here's how it is done:


1. Select the required element on the UI Snapshot view on the left and then check for the available 'Find By' and 'Selector' in  Selected Element view on the right.



2. Use the Find By method(xpath, id, resource id, accessibility id) in the Identifier Type field and the Selector value in the Enter <selector> value field in the Create/Update UI Identifiers page in Testsigma.



3. Repeat the procedure until all UI Identifiers are captured.
