How to Connect the Chronium DebuggingAddress for Python Selenium

은철 이 1 Reputation point

I first turned on the Edge Browser with the code below and tried to connect Selenium to an open edge, but it seems that the DebugAddress of Selenium was not applied.

from msedge.selenium_tools import Edge, EdgeOptions

        subprocess.Popen('start msedge.exe  --remote-debugging-port=9222 --user-data-dir="C:/EdgeTEMP" ', shell=True)
        options = EdgeOptions()
        capabilities = options.to_capabilities()
        options.use_chromium = True
        options.set_capability("debuggerAddress", "")
        driver = webdriver.Edge(executable_path = "./msedgedriver.exe", capabilities=capabilities)

Please tell me how to use Selenium for an Edge Browser that is already open.

    @은철 이 ,

    I suggest you try to refer to the steps below may help you to connect the Edge Chromium debugger address using Selenium Python code.

    1) First I start the Edge Chromium browser instance from the command prompt (run as Administrator) using the command below.
    msedge.exe -remote-debugging-port=9222 --user-data-dir="<Your_User_Profile_path_here...>"

    2) Run the below python code to connect the Edge browser instance.

         from msedge.selenium_tools import Edge, EdgeOptions  
         options = EdgeOptions()  
         options.use_chromium = True  
         options.add_experimental_option("debuggerAddress", "")  
         driver = Edge(executable_path = r"Edge_driver_path_here...\msedgedriver.exe", options= options)  



    Note: I made this test with the MS Edge Version 87.0.664.57 (Official Build) (64-bit)
