Add-in Manager Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to select the add-ins that you want UFT to load by selecting the check boxes adjacent to required add-ins.

To access

By default, this dialog box opens when you start UFT.

To display the Add-in Manager if it does not open when you start UFT, select Tools > Options > General tab > Startup Options node and select Display Add-in Manager on startup.

Important information
  • If you select the check box of an add-in that contains a child add-in, the parent add-in is selected automatically.

  • If you clear the check box for a parent add-in, the check boxes for its children are also cleared.

  • UFT remembers which add-ins you selected so that the next time you open UFT, the same add-ins are selected in the Add-in Manager dialog box.

  • If you load or unload an add-in that is displayed as a child of the Java add-in in the Add-in Manager, only applications that are opened after loading or unloading the add-in are affected.

Description

License

The currently active license used by UFT.

Add-in

The names of the installed add-ins.

The list of Add-ins might also include child nodes representing add-ins that you or a third party developed to support additional environments or controls using add-in extensibility.

For details, see the relevant Add-in Extensibility Developer Guide.

License column (for add-ins only)

The license used by the add-in, if any, and the time remaining until a time-limited license expires:

  • Licensed. Applies to the add-ins that are provided with UFT. Add-ins use the same license as UFT. Therefore, if UFT uses a Permanent license, the add-ins use the same Permanent license; if UFT uses a Time-Limited license, the add-ins use the same Time-Limited license.

  • Not Licensed. Applies to an add-in that does not have an installed seat license or access to a concurrent license (for example, if all concurrent licenses are currently in use, or if the required add-in license is not installed on the concurrent license server on your subnet). To load the add-in, you first need to install or access a license.

  • Time Remaining. Specifies the number of days and hours remaining until a time-limited add-in license expires. (Displayed only when using a UFT seat license—not a concurrent license.)

For more details, see the Unified Functional Testing Installation Guide.

Show on startup

Instructs UFT to display the Add-in Manager dialog box each time you open UFT. When this check box is cleared, UFT opens and loads the same add-ins it loaded in the previous session, without displaying the Add-in Manager.

(for concurrent license users) If this check box was cleared in the previous session, and the license type selected from the concurrent license server in that session is not currently available, UFT tries to load an available license that matches the selected add-ins.
