UI Element



Enables you to add or remove automation to/from the business component. When adding automation, click the down arrow next to the button and choose the type of automation:

  • Keyword GUI

  • Scripted GUI

  • API

Note: If you click Add Automation without selecting the down arrow, ALM adds the type of automation used the last time you added automation to a component. If you have not yet added automation, ALM adds keyword GUI automation (assuming the UFT add-in or the UFT for Business Process Testing add-in is installed on your machine. These add-in are available from the Application Lifecycle Management Add-ins page (Help > Add-ins)).

For details on the automation types, see Automation Types.

Available when: At least one testing tool is installed on your machine.
