UI flows fails - UIAElementMismatch

Applies to: Power Automate

Symptoms


When trying to run UI flows, you may see this error:

UIAElementMismatch Error

Verifying issue


This error usually occurs if your UI flows has the property "Use coordinates" set to true and UI flows is unable to locate the right element using coordinates. It is possible that the version of the recorded app is different from version of the app used while playing back which may cause this discrepancy.

Check that the version of the app that you are using while recording and the version of the app that is being used for playback are the same.

Solving steps


If you see that the version of the apps are different between recording and playback,

  • Install the version of the app that was used while recording on the playback machine (OR)
  • Re-record the steps using the version of the app that is available on playback.
