Modify a custom configuration file manually

Open the .xml file that you saved in any text editor, and modify the file according to your needs. To enable UFT to recognize the modifications that you made, the .xml file must keep its original structure. For details on the XML file structure, see Web Event Recording Configration XML Files.

Reset configuration settings to pre-configured basic levels

  • From the Custom Web Event Recording Configuration dialog box. In the Reset to box, select the predefined event recording level you want, and click Reset. All event settings are restored to the defaults for the level you selected.

  • From the Web Event Recording Configuration dialog box. Reset basic level configuration settings by selecting Default Settings. The configuration slider is displayed again, and all event settings are restored to the Basic event recording configuration level.
