I am encountering a wide range of automation blockers on the iOS platform. It feels like “restart the device” is the most common solution suggested by websriver. I’m 10 miles away from my device under test, and XCUiTest does not seem to have a button for doing that kind of thing either. Do we know what the big think is on handling alerts that block the driver, and the Facebook web driver just wanting to “rebuild” in xcode every time being a general source of perplexity.
The vague architecture image I have also does not help me to work out where to try prod around to solve an automation blocker like webdriver just being an ass, or the target driver not supporting ability to handle alerts well in all situations. I would post for help on the Selenium forums, but there is a lot of “drivethrough” people, on discuss.appium.io that often goes nowhere near serious application usage.
