Have you tried to validate only "My claims" as plain text? Without "Evaluate as regular expression" enabled.

Hi @ravikiranchalla,

I can see that you've selected "contains text in element", have you added the locator for the element containing the text as well?

if yes, then I think we need more details like screenshots from the page if possible or you can open a support ticket and include all details.

if the locator was not added, then I think you need to add the locator, please check the following URL for more details:

We tried with Add Locator option as well, but facing same error element not found.


Is your website public available to have a look?

Can you use check plain text in all page instead of using CSS locator?

Hi @AntonPineiro & team,

Can you please help us on how to configure an alert (Email notification), in case of content validation fails. We already created alerting profile named TEST UI_Validation and selected it in the Problem notification. When we run the Synthetic Monitor it is failing as expected but NO alert/mail is sent. Please find the below images for reference.






I would re-check these two things when problem is raised:

  1. Is problem mathing alerting profile "TEST UI_Validation"? AntonPineiro_0-1684176690474.png


  2. If yes, has problem tag "Synthetic UI Validation - UAT"? Have you assign it to synthetic script?
