Includes the use
of these products:
License names

  • The UFT Ultimate license is available only as a concurrent license.

  • Sprinter is available for UFT Ultimate or UFT Enterprise concurrent licenses only.

Upgrading licenses from before UFT 14.00

Backwards compatibility

If you are upgrading, and currently have an FT, QTP, or UFT license, you are not required to migrate to one of the new license types.

UFT will continue to function with your existing license.

UFT and LeanFT licenses will be automatically renamed as follows:

  • UFT license: Your license is automatically renamed to the UFT Enterprise license.
  • LeanFT license: Your license is automatically renamed to the UFT Pro (LeanFT) license
Device ID - based licenses

Starting in UFT 14.00, UFT supports device ID-based concurrent licenses, in addition to concurrent licenses based on your license server IP address.

However, you cannot use both IP address-based and device ID-based licenses simultaneously.

Once you've installed an ID-based concurrent license on your AutoPass License Server, any IP address-based licenses for the same features are automatically archived.

When upgrading, select the type of licenses you want to use moving forward, and migrate your licenses as needed.

For more details, see the License Management - Frequently Asked Questions section of the Autopass License Server User Guide.

Licensing fallback mechanism

Note: The licensing fallback is relevant only when working with concurrent licenses, and is not enabled by default.

When starting UFT or LeanFT, the Autopass License Server attempts to consume the exact license edition configured on the UFT or LeanFT machine, such as UFT Enterprise or UFT Pro.

To modify this configuration, see Define license usage behavior. Do this if you are concerned about the availability of the license edition configured on your UFT or LeanFT machine.

When the fallback mechanism is enabled, licenses are consumed as follows:

Define license usage behavior

Define how your UFT or LeanFT installation uses licenses in the HPE UFT.xml file.

This file is located on your UFT or LeanFT computer at: C:\ProgramData\HP\HP AutoPass License Server\AutoPass\LicenseServer\data\conf\.

Note: If you are upgrading from a previous UFT or LeanFT version, you must upgrade your Autopass License Server to version 9.3 or higher to access this file.
