Import Network Capture Dialog Box

Relevant for: API testing only

This dialog box enables you to import the contents of a network capture file. After you import the file to your test, UFT creates test steps for the transactions included in your file.

To access
  1. Create, open, or select an API test.

  2. Select Tools > Import Network Capture File.

Important Information
  • Only .pcap and .har network capture files are supported.

  • If your file contains errors, you cannot import the file and the Import button is disabled.

  • Steps created by importing a network capture file are not stored in the Toolbox pane. If you need to add the steps to your test again, you need to import the network capture file again.

  • For .har files: Open the file in a text editor and navigate to the response section of the desired HTTP transaction.
