We can identify a parent from its children in DOM with the help of xpath. There are situations where we have dynamic attributes for the parent node in html but the child nodes have unique static attributes for identification.
This can be achieved with the help of relative xpath along with the parent xpath axe. Method.
Code Implementation for child to parent traversal.
