Web application interrogation

Web application interrogation

Web application interrogation is similar to Windows application interrogation. Without modifying the web page source code, Pega Robot Studio™ evaluates an object's properties against match rules to ensure the object is a unique control every time the application runs within the solution. During interrogation, a green check mark is displayed when an object matches.

The major difference between the interrogations of web applications and Windows applications is the code used for matching. Since web applications use HTML code, the interrogation process reviews the HTML tags to determine the object type. If Studio can use the object type to match the control, the process completes. If Pega Robot Studio cannot use the object type, it uses the attributes found inside the HTML tag to differentiate between similar object types.

When reviewing the Object Hierarchy of an interrogated web application, the objects differ from Window-based objects to web-based objects. The first web-based object shown in the image below is the Sign_In webpage. From there, all the children of the webpage are web objects. All objects above the webpage are windows-based objects. The web browser is a Windows application in structure, so those objects are Windows objects. Only the webpage and its children are web objects. The following image shows an interrogated web application with global web pages disabled.
