What's New in UFT 14.00

UFT license editions and configurations

With version 14.00, the UFT brand includes the UFT Ultimate, UFT Enterprise, and UFT Pro (UFT Pro (LeanFT)) editions, each providing a different subset of UFT functionality.

Includes the use
of these products:
License names

UFT
UFT Pro (UFT Pro (LeanFT))
Sprinter

Mobile Center(for functional testing purposes only)

For more details, see our main product page at https://saas.hpe.com/software/uft .

This change does not affect the functionality entitlement of your existing licenses.

  • If you previously had a UFT license, it's now called UFT Enterprise.
  • If you previously had a UFT Pro (LeanFT) license, it's now called UFT Pro (UFT Pro (LeanFT))

As before, use a UFTRuntime Engine license to enable you to run UFT or UFT Pro (LeanFT) tests only. The UFTRuntime Engine license does not enable you to create or edit tests, or access the UFT IDE or UFT Pro (LeanFT) IDE plug-ins.

For more details, see License editions.

Migrate your licenses

If you have concurrent licenses, you may also choose to migrate to device ID-based licenses, instead of licenses based on your license server IP address.

If you choose to do so, ensure that you migrate all your concurrent licenses.

Note: Migration to the new license editions is not required, and your existing licenses are backwards compatible.

License server configuration

You can now also edit general concurrent licensing behavior using a configuration file provided with the UFT installation.

For details, see Licensing FAQs.

We recommend you use the Autopass License Server version 9 or higher.

For details, see the Autopass License Server User Guide , downloaded with your AutoPass License Server installation.
