Select AUT Parameter Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests and API testing

This dialog box enables you to link a test parameter to an AUT parameter contained in an ALM AUT environment configuration.

To access
  1. Open a test stored on an ALM server with Lab Management enabled.

    Do one of the following:

    • Open an API test, select the Start or End step in the canvas, and open the Properties pane. Then select the Test Input/Output Parameters tab .

    • Select a GUI test in the solution explorer. Open the Properties pane, and select the Parameters tab .

  2. In the parameters grid, select a parameter and click the Edit Parameter button .

  3. In the Add/Edit Input Parameter dialog box, click .

    Note: Available only if UFT is connected to an ALM server that has the Lab Management module, and a test stored on that server is selected in the solution explorer.

Important information

AUT parameters are used for server-side execution. To set up server-side execution, create functional test sets in ALM, and use ALM's Lab Resources module to define hosts on which the tests run. For details, see Running tests in Server-Side Execution, and the Application Lifecycle Management User Guide.

Note: All of the AUT parameters that you use must be from the same ALM AUT environment.

Relevant tasks

Run a test using Server-Side Execution

User interface elements are described below:

UI Elements


AUT Environments

The list of AUT environment configurations defined in the Lab Resources > AUT Environment module.

Expand the AUT Environments node to view the available AUT environments, and then select an environment to view the available parameters.

If any test parameter is already linked to an AUT parameter, only the environment containing that AUT parameter is displayed.

Parameter column

The AUT parameter names, grouped in AUT environment configurations.

Value column The value defined for the AUT parameter in ALM.
Copy default value (override)

Specifies whether to copy the parameter value displayed in this dialog box into the Default Value box in the Edit/Add Input Parameter dialog box.

Copying overwrites any Default Value previously defined in the Edit/Add Input Parameter dialog box. However, after it is copied, you can edit the Default Value manually.
