Following are my code:

driver.switchTo().frame("iframe-8c590576-9047-4baf-a34f-69fe67a295a1");
Thread.sleep(2000);


I tried using the xpath as below however no luck:

driver.findElement(By.xpath("//html/body/div[1]/div[4]/div[3]/div[2]/div[3]/div[3]/div[2]/div/div[4]/div/div/div[1]/div/div[3]/div/div[2]/iframe/html/body/div[2]/div[6]/div/table/tbody/tr/td[1]/div/div/table/tbody/tr/td[1]/[contains(@class, 'field-link') and contains(@class ,'external-link')]")).click();
Thread.sleep(2000);

Answer

You can locate the iframe as web element using partial id or class and use it to switch.

It looks like the src attribute is unique. You can use it to locate the frame.

WebElement iframe = driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("[src*='en_US/Person_homePagePDCPag']"));
driver.switchTo().frame(iframe);
