Get user action info



Is there a way to get: user interaction & element identifier... from a user action?
The only way I can see that right now is in the preview of the user action naming rules.


How can I see that for a specific user action?

I am not exactly sure what you're asking. You can configure User Action Naming Rules on your Application. These User Action Names can include User Interaction and Element Identifier.

Then, each User Action will include those properties in their name.


But what iam asking is how can i get this info if i go from a user action.

For example in an application X, i chose a specific xhr user action

How can i see the element identifier and the user interaction of that exact user action

Currently after renaming a user action we can't tie it back to the actual naming rule. But you can use the preview to find this information!

Find the preview at the bottom of the user actions page or on both sub pages for creating either placeholders or user action naming rules.

Simply use the URL visible in the default action name and enter it into the preview filter. The check the attributes such as the identifier there. See screenshot

To improve this process, we are currently working on a browser extension that lets you see all such values/attributes right in your browser and right as you trigger the action in your application. This will cut away all the processing on the server that you would usually need to wait to use the preview and all the required navigating through the UI. We plan to release the extension in Q1 next year. If you are interested in using it earlier (e.g. in a preview) ping me!

Hello @zietho any chance this extension is now available and if so how can I access it?
Even as a preview.
