Run LeanFT tests

Note: LeanFT tests can be run using any of the supported licenses, including the UFT Runtime license.

Run your LeanFT test

To run your tests locally, you compile your project, and then use either your testing framework's runner, such as NUnit or JUnit, to run your compiled .dll or .jar, or any other relevant runner.


  • When you run a LeanFT test based on a LeanFT template, the inherited UnitTestClassBase launches the LeanFT engine so that LeanFT can interact with your application during the run.
  • If you are working with your own C# or Java framework, or with JavaScript, you must use SDK.Init to enable communications:

Run multiple tests in parallel on one LeanFT machine

Save testing time by running multiple tests, or a single test with multiple data sets, in parallel on the same host machine.

When using a seat license, LeanFT can run up to four test operations in parallel.

When using concurrent licenses, LeanFT dynamically consumes additional licenses, each enabling four parallel test operations. The maximum number of licenses to consume is defined in the LeanFT runtime engine settings.

Run parallel testing on:

  • Native and hybrid mobile applications

  • SAPUI5-based applications

  • Web applications in the following browsers:

    Browser Window Linux
    Mac Mobile
    Google Chrome
    Google Chrome (on Android)


    N/A N/A
    Headless Chrome
    Mozilla Firefox

    Safari (on iOS) N/A N/A

Create and run your tests in a unit testing framework that supports running tests in parallel. LeanFT supports TestNG and NUnit 3, but you can also use any custom framework that launches tests in parallel.

Tip: To minimize performance issues when testing mobile applications, lock each device once for all tests. To do this, lock the device at the beginning of the class running your tests and not before each test.

Run tests remotely

You can run LeanFT tests from your local computer, even if the application you want to test is located on a remote computer. This requires adjusting settings for your test, configuring the runtime engine settings on the remote computer, and in most cases, setting up secure communications between the two computers.

For details, see Run tests remotely.

Run multiple tests using a LeanFT grid

Use the LeanFT grid to run the same test operations on different environments by changing the parameters that describe the required environment. You can achieve distributed parallel test execution, by running all of your tests on the grid, locally or remotely, and letting the grid allocate nodes for each test run, as needed.

For details, see LeanFT Grid.

Run LeanFT tests in ALM

You can use ALM tracking and traceability features to manage automated LeanFT tests and business components.

For details, see Integrate LeanFT and ALM.

Add tests into the continuous integration system

When your tests are ready for integration into your organization's automation testing suite, you can add them to Jenkins or another continuous integration build system. For details, see Run tests using a CI system.
