The option to export the list of UFT Mobile users to a CSV file was also added. You can import the list of users into UFT Mobile with the existing CLI tool. For details, see Manage users.

App uploads

In this release, there is no auto-packaging toggle on the Apps page, and apps are uploaded without packaging by default. By removing this global toggle, you no longer need to waste resources on unnecessary signing and packaging.
