Known Issues with Actions

Relevant for: GUI tests only

Test names in actions

If a test contains a call to an action stored in another test, and that other test was renamed in ALM, the original test name still appears (in square brackets) in the canvas.

The obsolete name in the canvas does not affect UFT's ability to locate and run the action.

If it is important to display the correct test name, delete the action call from the test and reinsert it.

Nested actions

You cannot add a new action as a nested action to an external action.

Instead, open the external action and add the call to the nested action directly.

Copies of tests

If you make a copy of an existing test, you cannot insert call to parallel actions in both tests from the same test.

Instead of copying the test, use Save As to create a duplicate of the test.
