I would like to connect to the following page: SAD Consultation - workarea (geneve.ch)
While this work in my normal browser, Distill is not able to see any of this page, and remains stuck at waiting_doc, so I cannot make any macro.
Anyone could think of a solution? Greatly appreciated.
Hello @lime91, welcome to the community forum and reporting the issue. I have noticed an issue that could be related to the problem with this URL:
When I open http://etat.geneve.ch/sadconsult/sadconsult.asp?wci=frmFicheSyno&td=DD&nm=113425/1 in Firefox, it always redirects to https://www.geneve.ch/en
The way this page loads, differs depending on the platform being used. We will look into it and get back to you.
What were you trying to autotmate?
Hi @ajitk and many thanks for your feedback.
The link works on chrome when you open it from incognito mode, I think it relates to the cookies or the cache that sometimes creates this weird redirect.
An alternative which works would include the following steps:
Open SAD Consultation - workarea (geneve.ch)
Type: 113425 under “Numéro de dossier”
Wait, and click on the File number: DD 113425/1
Wait, and click on “Suivi” in the left menu.
The result of this page is the one I need to monitor for any change.
Thanks for your help.
Hi @lime91, SAD Consultation - workarea website uses frameset and frames to render the page, and they are not supported as of now. We’ve picked up this issue and have started to work on it. We’ll keep you posted and reply to this post once we add the support.
hi @pallavJha, thank you very much. Highly appreciated and looking forward to hearing back from you.
We’ve updated the Macro recorder and a few other components to handle frames.
To fetch the required data, we’ll have to create a macro to perform the steps you’ve shared and then configure a monitor to run it so that the same steps are performed before getting the data.
Here’s a screenshot of the Macro I’ve created:
You can follow this doc to learn more about Macro: Macro: Record and Replay Automated Actions – Distill
Afterward, we’ll have to configure the monitor to use this macro.
- Open the remote browser and select the macro:
- Run the macro and click on the save button after the macro completes:
- In the Monitor options page, open the config and set the frame index to 7 from 0:
The frame at index 7 contains the table.
- Save the monitor.
The table should be available once the monitor runs:
Thank you so much for the great effort! Really appreciate it. Will continue using your services. And what a great customer service, congrats!
