uhm! how do you make protractor pointing to the global installed webdriver in standalone mode? do I need to set the chromedriver and geckodriver path manually?
in my case protractor directly uses the globally installed version, but if this does not work you can always navigate to the node_modules directory where the webdriver-manager dependency was installed when installing protractor and update that local version
yes I updated the local version to test for now, the global version was not picked
@tediroca thanks for pointing out the ticket

Does anyone here has any thoughts?
Hi @pedrohyvo . Latest versions of Chrome are not supported through the chromedriver versions installed via the webdriver-manager version that Protractor 5.4 installs. There is more info and a workaround in angular/webdriver-manager#404

Hi! Is it possible to use different args for each instance of Chrome when running with shardTestFiles: true? I need to set the debug port to a specific value for each instance so I can access DevTools protocol during our tests.
Jon Wallsten
Has anyone ever had issues with shardTestFiles: true causing "No specs found" error? It only happens in our CI where we run Jenkins on RedHat machines. Locally on Windows it has never happened.
Jon Wallsten
Is it possible to enable more debug-info to see why I can't find any specs?
has anyone encountered this on jenkins when trying to run protractor tests?

Hi All. I'm using the below code to check the Column headers in a web table and then perform actions if the header exists.
this.enterCellValueBasedOnColumnName = function (columnName, textValue) {
return this.getColumnHeaders().then(function (val) {
console.log('All Column Headers: ' + val);
var ColumnNameIndex = val.indexOf(columnName);
return element.all(by.xpath('(.//table[contains(@class,"htCore")])[1]/tbody/tr/td')).count().then(function (totalCells) {
console.log('totalCells in the row are:' + totalCells);
for (var i = 1; i <= totalCells; i++) {
console.log("val[ColumnNameIndex] is" + val[ColumnNameIndex]);
if ((val[ColumnNameIndex].includes(columnName)) && (ColumnNameIndex < 15) && (val[ColumnNameIndex] !== 'Tax TransactionNum') && (val[ColumnNameIndex] !== 'Tax Filing Date')) {
var index = ColumnNameIndex + 1;
browser.actions().mouseMove(element(by.xpath('(.//table[contains(@class,"htCore")])[1]/tbody/tr[' + i + ']/td[' + index + ']'))).doubleClick().perform();
basePage.waitUntilElementVisible(yearSearchInputField, 3000);
basePage.enterTextWithActions(yearSearchInputField, textValue);
is there any other function other than includes which I can use here?

I am in a decision-making situation to either use Protractor or Selenium to create test automation framework for two apps, one is Angular-based, another is Vue JS based.

Advantages of using Protractor:
Comes bundles with Aungular app, no need to add exrta dependency
Supports more element locating mechanisms by providing methods like filter() and cssContainingText()
Supports scripting languages like Typescript and JavaScript

Main reason for using Protractor was because prtractor had its own locator types (like ng-model, etc) in order to handle elements in ealier version of Angular apps. However after Angular 2, those locators types have become irrelevant and now protractor uses locators just like in Selenium

I also have expert level knowledge in Selenium and Java

What should be my parameters to select either Protractor or Selenium to create a test automation framework and automate integration test cases? Is execution faster in Protractor because it uses scripting language?

Raul Molina
Buenas, me gustaría saber como puedo automatizar con protractor el interactuar con el mapa por medio del click por coordenadas. Los elementos del mapa no tienen id vienen incrustados por mapBox y estoy intentando localizar los elementos del mapa por coordendas pero no son las correctas y me salta un mensaje de error diciendo que estoy fuera del mapa a la hora de hacer, click. Necesito ayuda ya que me estoy volviendo loco. Gracias compañeros !!!

Hello. Is it true that Google plans to stop supporting protractor? And what are your plans with version 6?
