Thank you for contacting Telerik Support Team.
Telerik Test Studio uses an intelligent element identification scheme to auto-generate find expressions. It is based on the element attributes available. However it is important to use static attributes or part of the dynamic ones which is static. This is a requirement for each and every testing framework since otherwise there is no way to identify the element by next execution.
Test Studio offers flexible handling of the find logic
used to identify an element and you could adjust it to your application. Elements that are using the same find expressions are merged to a single element. Another thing that you might find useful is the base URL setting
available in project settings. I would like to share with you the article for the compare mode of URL
by recording that might actually be the answer of your first query.
Please take your time and give a try on the above shared features to adjust your tests to your application. Do not hesitate to contact me in case of any further assistance required. But please bear in mind that we might need access to your application for further investigation.
Thank you for the cooperation in advance and I hope to hear from you soon.
