Relevant tasks

Run a test or component

User interface elements are described below:

UI Element


Run mode

Instructs UFT how to run your test or component:

  • Normal (displays execution marker) (default). Runs your test or component with the execution arrow to the left of each step or statement as it is performed. If the test contains multiple actions, the tree in the Keyword View Item column expands to display the steps, and the Editor displays the script, of the currently running action.

    Delay each step execution by. You can specify the time in milliseconds that UFT should wait before running each consecutive step (up to a maximum of 10000 ms.).

    The Normal run mode option requires more system resources than the Fast option, described below.

  • Fast. Runs your test or component without the execution arrow to the left of the Keyword View or Editor (for tests) and does not expand the item tree or display the script of each action as it runs. This option requires fewer system resources.

    Note: When running a test set from ALM, tests or components are automatically run in Fast mode, even if Normal mode is selected.

Submit a defect to ALM for each failed step (Run Results Viewer only)

Instructs UFT to automatically submit a defect to ALM for each failed step in your test.

Allow other HPE products to run tests and components

Enables other HPE products such as ALM and Test Batch Runner to run tests and components on this computer.

Note: If the Windows Firewall is turned on on your computer, and you want to enable business process tests to be run on your computer from a remote ALM client, then you must also manually create a firewall exception for the bp_exec_agent.exe remote agent. For details, see Enable the Remote Agent.
