Hi All, is there any way to pass elementFinder objects(or object locators) as parameters in function

can you match element using regex? something like by.model('.*value$') ?

Hi All, Which version of Protractor should i be using for Angular 7 and above application? I am planning to use node 11.15 , Protractor 5.4.4 . We already have a huge test suite written using Protractor 5.3.2. We are migrating the app from angularjs to angular7 and above. We want to migrate to async await also during this migration phase.Can someone please share the version if you are already using and working for you? This would be very helpful. Thank You in advance

Hi Everyone

I am using Allure reports for reporting purpose in Protractor. when I am launching report , it is showing loading in the browser.

using below in conf file for generating reports-
onPrepare: function () {
var AllureReporter = require('jasmine-allure-reporter');
jasmine.getEnv().addReporter(new AllureReporter({
resultsDir: 'allure-results'

is there anyone who faced this issue earlier or I am the first :)
@RashmiKalpeshChauhan even I have faced. Sometimes it shows partial data. Still not yet got clear idea about that
@Sandeep1217 -How did you fix that , due to that I am not able to see report.
@RashmiKalpeshChauhan Not fixed, still doing r&d on that. It worked fine with wdio for me

Shoud i do this:

expect(await page.getCurrentUrl()).toEqual('http://localhost:4200/page');

or this:

await expect(page.getCurrentUrl()).toEqual('http://localhost:4200/page');
Basically, all my page object requests should be async?
i'm getting a test (not the one from the example) that sometimes fails, when i'm only comparing string after typing on a table.

Looking for a solution with uploading a file for a react front end. Here is what I have attempted. Stuck in passing the file path with the system window, which will take you to the upload button.
const fileToUpload = "./testData/docs/test_1.docx";
const absolutePath = path.resolve( fileToUpload );
element.all('documents_header_uploadButton')).then(function(items) {items[0].sendKeys(absolutePath)});
Whether latest version of protractor can test angular 9 or 10 web application??

                    if (myguid !== firstGUID) {
                var surveyName = element(by.xpath("(//div//h2)"));

Can you please help me ?

@astorcanch_gitlab apologies, just now saw your response. We also do some similar strategies to make locators more generic depending on the scenario. Off topic, but I think your approach can be simplified a bit - you shouldn't have to set your private variable each time.
import { by, element, ElementFinder } from 'protractor';
import { BasePage } from './common/basePage';

class MyLibraryPage extends BasePage {

    async createNewLessonFromSlide (creationOption: string) { element(by.xpath(`//p[contains(text(), ${creationOption})]`)));
export const myLibraryPage = new MyLibraryPage();

Beyond that, I was seeking more of a try/catch approach to locating elements, and one where protractor would perhaps need to be aware or keep a history of which element was found "last" time (so this likely extends protractor's base functionality). But these other "AI" frameworks seem to keep a history of the properties of each element from previous runs, then use that information to find the element in subsequent test runs, even if developers have since made minor changes to the html.
So for example, you have a test which runs fine for 2 weeks, then a developer changes a button name from Open Invoice to Show Invoice. So with the approach you & I currently use to locate elements - the test would instantly fail. But maybe that same button had a class name called invoice-button which DIDN'T change. The new approach I'm suggesting would recognize the same button still exists (by searching it's alternative properties - classname, attributes, etc). So it would click the button, save those new properties for later, then continue passing the test, with no extra work needed by the automation tester.

Hi! I'm trying to figure out how should waitForAngularEnabled() behave by design - should it keep given value (true or false) until it was explicitly changed or should it be true when any new page is loaded? It's not mentioned in documentation (, but after updating to Protractor 5.4 I have to reset value to false from time to time during test execution. Thanks for any information about that!

Can anyone please let me know how we can encrypt and decrypt the password in Protractor-javascript-cucumber framework
Also could anyone please let me know how to write the script for multiple test user with same user id and password and Multiple user with differet password set
Aasim Anwar
As per my understanding you need not to define the waitForAngularEnabled() if you're dealing with the Angular Application, and if you're dealing with non-angular application then define like this: browser.waitForAngularEnabled(false);

Konstantin Bläsi
@ChristianDellarosa_gitlab add a handler for
make the handle log the trace of the error, then fix the error using that info
unhandled rejection means your code contains async functions and you forgot to handle some errors (here promise rejection)
something like process.on("unhandledRejection", error => console.error("Unhandled rejected promise:", error))
Christian Dellarosa
Thank you!!, Where is that controller added? in the config.js?
Konstantin Bläsi
@ChristianDellarosa_gitlab yes that's a good place, add it as early as possible
