Detecting and resolving changes

Relevant for: business process tests and flows

When using business process tests in UFT with the BPT Packaged Apps Kit, you can run business process tests and flows in Change Detection mode. When you run a test in Change Detection Mode, UFT checks for changes made in the application since the test or flow was last updated and displays the changes in a Change Detection report.

Note: Running tests in Change Detection mode is supported only for SAP GUI applications.

For each change in the report, UFT offers possible resolutions. This enables you to update your test or flow automatically without learning or manually updating the component's steps.

For example, you are testing a screen for adding new customer contact information. The screen contains the fields Name, Address, and Phone Number. You create a test that verifies that information entered in these fields is correctly added to your customer database. Suppose you now add an E-mail address field to the screen. If you run your test in regular mode, the test may pass and you may not notice that there is an additional field that should be tested. However, if you run the test in Change Detection mode, UFT notices that the field was added to the screen and suggests adding a step to the component corresponding to the new field. You can then run an updated version of the test that includes verification of the additional field.
