I am getting an error on my screen while running appium throug Serenity bdd, though the element is visible and has correct locator as define in my script. I want to try clicking on just the button while the app is open and on the correct page. Problem is as soon as I start appium, the app shutsdown and has to go through the whole testcase to reach that button. Is there any way to not make the app shutdown and basically just have the app open on the right page and test the button without having to go through the entire script each time?

My serenity bdd properties file is as follows:

webdriver.driver = appium

appium.platformName = Android

appium.platformVersion = 10.0

appium.deviceName = R52N20ALVDN
