Properties used to match Web applications

Updated on October 19, 2022

When interrogating a webpage, Pega Robot Studio reads the HTML for the page, identifies the HTML tags for the selected objects and associates the tags with the controls. The following table shows how HTML tags, web objects, and web controls are related.

Note: Because multiple HTML objects of the same type reside on a page. Pega Robot Studio uses multiple characteristics about the object, derived from the HTML tag, to uniquely identify an object. The match rules for Web applications are based on the combinations of object type and HTML code.
