Found element in XML document with recorder fails in actual test


I’m trying to verify if a certain value is set in an xml node. The recorder renders the xml document differently then the actual browser test. So while my test works in the recorder, it fails when it’s run in a browser.

Below a screenshot of the recorder and xpath:

How should I handle this test?


Thanks for the suggestion, we now use an HTTP GET request to check for status 200 which is a much simpler way validating if the server is up and running.
