    hi Sarang,

    Did you verified browser extension to Edge and Chrome?
    Also, take not AMC tool is not always a one-to-one mapping of elements, attributes and associated actions and consequently you will need to provide manual fixes where these occur.



    Above will help you to review and adjust accordingly.

    hi Manish,

    Yes, we are using correct extension for Edge and chrome, We are using Blueprism V6.10.2 so i have installed Browser extension 6.10.2 in Edge and Chrome.
    Both option shown in screenshot is already set. 
    In our case after object conversion its not identifying any element.

    Thanks
    Sarang

    Hi Sarang,

    There is no guarantee the conversion would always work for you, this is especially true for elements that are converted from IE. The tool uses the attributes selected for an IE element and attempts to convert them to the equivalent of element in modern browser mode. The reason for this is documented in the GitHub site, under the section Factors that May Impact the Conversion Outcome. I would advise you read through the collateral before using the tool. There is also a blog video you may watch. An example can be found in the video on a converted elements not working after conversion. 

    When you have a converted element not working, my advice is to not dwell on it, just spy the element again using modern browser mode.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Sarang,

    Can I suggest you go and download the latest version of the conversion tool here: https://github.com/blue-prism/ApplicationModellerConversion

    Also, make sure you get the latest conversion rules from the site. Since you are running 6.10.2, you will need the ConversionRules_IE-ChromeEdgeFirefox_6.10.1.xml instead of the current 6.9 ones you have.

    Hello,
    I'm having the same issues.  The converter was working with version 1.3.0 before and now it stopped working.  Since I saw this message a few days ago in the community I downloaded the new version and ensured I was using the conversion file for 6.10.1 (We have BP in 6.10.1) and we have tried the conversion several times and the object is not converted (it doesn't even assign the new path for Edge instead of IE).  Any other suggestions?

    Hi Lourdes,

    Did you update the entire application to 1.3.1, including the conversion rules file and the BPAMConversionToolPlugin.dll? I am not suggesting this can be the issue but at least you do not need to worry about potentialy having incompatible files from different versions mixed.

    Also, are you able to share the CSV report file post conversion? It is not easy to work out what has happened at your end, and the report can help somewhat. But I completely understand if you are not willing to do so due to security concerns.

    FYI that I have just run 1.3.1 on my local environment and I cannot see anything wrong with it. As a minimum, IE path is replaced with Chrome in Application Modeller if that helps.

    Hi Bruce,

     

    I did update everything to version 1.3.1.  After running it states it has converted the object, but it is not creating the CSV file at all.

    Hi Lourdes,

    You must click the 'Download Report' button to the right of the 'Convert' button post conversion to generate a report. It is not done for you automatically. For details, please refer to page 11 of the user guide that comes with the tool.

    Hi Lourdes,

    The reason for non-conversion in this case was quite simple, your object was not an IE object, but a Win32 object. In such a case, the Application Modeller Conversion Tool would skip such objects. This mechanism is in place to prevent accidentally converting objects not designed for purpose. 

    Just out of curiosity, do you actually have IE elements in this Win32 object? One possible reason I can think of is to enable AA spied elements. I am aware some customers have changed their objects to Win32 so they can still work with AA elements present in a browser, otherwise are not useable in modern browser mode. In such a case, you may wish to change the object to IE before running the conversion. Once it is done, you can then manually change it back to use Win32 mode.

    Hope this helps.​
