UFT Mobile Integration

This section describes how to configure ALM for running tests of your mobile applications directly from ALM. These tests access the mobile devices and applications from your UFT Mobile server and post the test results in ALM.

Enabling UFT Mobile

This section describes how to configure ALM for running tests of your mobile applications directly from ALM.

Note: When working with the UFT Mobile extension from ALM, the ALM server needs to align with the UFT Mobile server time.

For details on how to use the UFT Mobile integration from ALM, see UFT Mobile Dialog Box.

  1. Set ALM Configuration Parameters for UFT Mobile

    In the Site Configuration tab, define the following configuration parameters:

    Parameter

    Description

    MOBILE_CENTER_SERVER_HOST Enter the UFT Mobile server IP address or FQDN (fully qualified domain name).
    MOBILE_CENTER_SERVER_PORT Enter the port number of the UFT Mobile server.
    MOBILE_CENTER_SSL_ENABLED If UFT Mobile uses an SSL connection (starting with https:), set this parameter to "Y". If SSL is not in use, set it to “N”.
    COMMUNICATION_SECURITY_PASSPHRASE

    If the communication between the ALM server and UFT Mobile is enabled after authentication by a Single Sign-On (SSO) token, enter the appropriate value.

    Note: The same value must be set in UFT Mobile (Administration > Settings > General > Single Sign On Init string). For more details, see the UFT Mobile Help.

    UFT Mobile's multi-project early access feature: If you are using the multi-project feature, the same value must be set in UFT Mobile > Project Management > Global Settings > General > Single Sign On Init string.

  1. Set email addresses for authorized users

    1. In Site Administration, click the Site Users tab.
    2. In the User Details tab, make sure to define an email address for each user. The email address must match the email address defined in UFT Mobile(Administration > Users).

      For more details on setting users in Site Administration, see Adding a New User.

      For more details on setting users in UFT Mobile, see the UFT Mobile Help.

  1. Enable the UFT Mobile extension

    Create a project and enable the "ALM UFT Mobile Extension". For more details, see Create projects and Enabling Extensions for a Project.

  1. Customizing a UFT Mobile enabled project (optional)

    You can customize the settings of a UFT Mobile enabled project by overriding the configuration parameter values defined in the Site Configuration tab. For example, you may need to set a project with a server IP address that is different than your other projects.

    You customize you project using the UFT Mobile Configuration page in Project Customization. For more details, see Configuring a UFT Mobile Enabled Project.
