Scenario Testing - Automation Recorder issue

I have found that a recorded scenario test can fail when a recorded scenario spans multiple UI pages and UI page transition lags behind the execution of the steps in the recorded scenario. As an example, I record the following scenario:

  • UI page 1 has a button. I click the button. The click action causes UI page 2 to be displayed.
  • UI page 2 has a button. I click the button. The click action sets the case status to completed.

I playback the recorded scenario.

  • UI page 1 is rendered correctly. The button on UI page 1 is clicked.
  • There is a delay rendering UI page 2. In the meantime the recorded executes the click button action on UI page 2.
  • The case fails since the button action on UI page 2 was not executed properly.

My questions are:

  1. Is this a defect within the playback of a recorded scenario?
  2. If not, then should I assume recorded scenarios should be limited to a single UI page?

Thank you!
