This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to automate a minimal form interface using Selenium to capture an element & later Java code.

But the challenge is the minimal form has only one input container which is constantly changing and the input container generates dynamic id's so finding the element by id name is not possible.

The input container cannot be mapped with xpath because xpath also uses the id eg. //md-select[@id='select_15'].
