AI actions

AI actions transform human-understandable goals into groups of preset commands. When an AI action is invoked, our web agent continuously generates and runs preset commands until the specified goal has been achieved. For example, the goal "add ice cream to my cart" on a shopping page may transform into a series of clicks.

Since they are powered by LLMs instead of hardcoded selectors (opens in a new tab), AI actions are self-healing, adapting automatically to minor changes to your website without human involvement. We recommend using AI actions to complete user flows such as logins, searches, and checkouts where the specific actions taken are not as important as being able to accomplish the goal.

Creating an AI action

AI action initial state

Initial configuration of an AI action

The configuration for an AI action consists only of the goal that should be achieved. The prompt should include any variables required to complete the task, such as credentials ("login using mypassword"), descriptors ("add a 128GB iPad to my cart"), and option choices ("decline all add-ons and checkout").

Once you have entered the prompt, click the play button to run the action. You will begin to see Momentic's web agent generate and execute commands:

AI action generating state

Web agent generating commands. You cannot modify the test while it's running.

The web agent will continue generating commands until it believes your goal has been accomplished, at which point it will output a special Done command that is only allowed at the end of AI actions and cannot be moved. If the agent is acting unexpectedly, you can click Cancel Execution and manually tune the sequence of commands.

AI action final state

A fully completed AI action

Adding a success condition

On the first run, the web agent will always terminate the AI action with a Done command that has a blank Success condition. This means that, on subsequent runs, the AI action will be marked as successful if all nested commands within it succeed.

You can customize this behavior by adding a condition to the Done command, which functions like an AI check that runs after the other nested commands in the AI action complete. If the check fails, the entire AI action will be marked as failed. This condition will also be used for auto-healing during scheduled runs if your website changes.

Tuning AI actions

If the web agent chooses an incorrect sequence of commands, there are two ways to tune the AI action.

Changing the prompt

You can edit your original prompt to provide more details about the correct sequence of commands.

Changing individual commands

You are free to edit the commands generated by the web-agent, move commands around, delete commands, or add new commands. In the event your website changes and auto-healing is required in a scheduled run, your edits will incorporated as feedback by the Momentic web agent when generating new commands.

Note that you cannot delete or move the final Done command. If you wish to regenerate all generated commands, please delete the entire AI action.
