Creating or Editing Unified Functional Testing (UFT) Tests

To execute UFT tests, the Unified Functional Testing software must be installed on the same computer on which Silk Central execution servers are installed.

To create or edit a UFT test:

  1. In the menu, click Tests > Details View .
  2. Select a container or folder node in the Tests tree where you want to insert a new test, or select the test that you want to edit.
  3. Click New Child Test (New Child Test) on the toolbar, or click (Edit).

    The New Test/Edit Test dialog box appears.

  4. Type a name and description for the test.
    Note: Silk Central supports HTML formatting and cutting and pasting of HTML content for Description fields.
  5. If you are creating a new test, select Unified Functional Testing Test from the Type list box. Click Next.

    The Unified Functional Testing Test Properties dialog box appears.

  6. In the Test field, select the source control location of the UFT test to be executed.
    Tip: You can select the test (.tsp) itself, or the folder where the test is located.
  7. Optional: Check the Validate HPE UFT add-ins option to validate all specified add-ins of the selected UFT test.
  8. Optional: Check the Show HPE UFT application option to display the application under test during test execution.
  9. Optional: Check the Log debug messages option to log debug messages in the test run results.
  10. Optional: Use the Inherit from parent check boxes to inherit the settings from the parent UFT test.
  11. Click Finish.
Note: Parameters are passed to the UFT test by defining parameters with the same name as the test parameters that are defined in the UFT test itself.

The original UFT result files, run_results.xml and run_results.html, are available in the Files tab of the test run results.
