Important information
  • You must open the Siebel application with Siebel Test Automation loaded, by specifying additional URL parameter values. For details, see Siebel Test Automation Module configuration.
  • If you select the Open the following application when a record or run session begins option, UFT automatically appends the Siebel Test Automation information to the URL (you do not need to specify it manually in the URL). If you select to record and run on any open browser, you must specify the required parameter values as part of the application URL when you open the application.
  • If you select the Open the following application when a record or run session begins option, and specify the password in the Siebel automation access code section, UFT automatically appends the password information to the URL. You do not need to specify it manually in the URL. If you select to record and run on any open browser, or do not specify the password, you must specify the required password values as part of the application URL when you open the application.
  • If a session timeout error occurs in your application, the Siebel Test Automation URL parameter values are not saved. After you log out and log in again, you must navigate to the correct URL that contains the required Siebel Test Automation parameter values.
