I am trying to locate elements with generated ids wherein some part of the ID is known; for example:


in which the last 3 words (_default-create-firstname) are known but anything preceding that is subject to change. Is this possible?

You can use the below methods:




element = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//[starts-with(@id, ‘the_text_you_want_to_match’)]");

element = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//[contains(@id, ‘the_text_you_want_to_match’)]");

element = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//*[ends-with(@id, ‘the_text_you_want_to_match’)]");

Hope this helps!
