User management

In the USERS tab, you can add users, reset passwords, change roles, or delete users.

If you are using LDAP, you can change user roles, however, creating and deleting users, and resetting user passwords options are disabled. When SAML SSO is enabled, resetting user passwords is disabled.

Add a new user

Only authorized users can access UFT Mobile. To allow others to run tests with UFT Mobile you need to add them to the list of authorized users.

To add a new user:

  1. Click Administration in the right of the masthead, and click the USERS tab.
  2. Click Add User and enter the new user's email address and password. The password must be at least 6 characters long (maximum of 20 characters) and must contain at least:

    • one digit from 0-9
    • one lowercase English character
    • one uppercase English character

    SSO:  When SSO is enabled, enter the user name as defined in the Identify Provider (IdP).

  3. To assign a user an administrator role, select the Admin check box. If the check box is unselected, a non-admin role is assigned.

    The following table shows the main differences between roles:

    Permissions Admin User
    View system info
    Download logs Can download all logs. Can only download logs for devices to which they have access.
    Devices Has control of all devices. Can move devices between workspaces.

    Can only access their private devices, devices in shared assets, or devices belonging to workspaces to which they have been assigned as users.

    View Connectors Can view and manage all connectors. Can view only their own connectors.
    View Reservations Can toggle between All and Mine in the Reservations tab. Can manage only their own reservations in the Reservations tab.
    Administration Menu

    Visible

    Workspaces Menu

     

    Visible

    Can access the workspaces area of the Lab to create and manage workspaces, and to assign users and devices to workspaces.

    Note: When using UFT Mobile as a managed service provided by an MSP or when shared spaces are enabled, administrators cannot download server logs. Operators (MSPs) can download the logs and also reset passwords. For details, see Shared spaces and workspaces.

  4. When using multiple workspaces, assign the user to a workspace.

    1. Click the MANAGEMENT tab and select ALL USERS.
    2. Select the user you want to assign, and click Select Workspace.
    3. Select the workspaces that you want the user to access, and click SAVE

LDAP users

You can also integrate LDAP with UFT Mobile by defining the LDAP settings in the Administration Settings page. This enables individuals in organizations that use LDAP for managing user credentials and permissions, to access UFT Mobile with their LDAP credentials, without the need for the administrator to first add them to the list of authorized users.

Once you enable LDAP integration:

  • You will not be able to add, delete, or change a user's password from the Users page.
  • Users that do not belong to the LDAP database will not be able to log into UFT Mobile, with the exception of the admin@default.com user.
  • Before an administrator can assign an LDAP user to a group, the user needs to perform an initial login to UFT Mobile.
  • Upon the first log in, the user receives a User role. After the initial login, an administrator can change the role to Admin.

  • When using UFT Mobile as a managed service provided by an MSP or when shared spaces are enabled: If the Allow access to all users option was enabled at the global level in the LDAP integration settings, the Remove button will not be displayed and you will not be able to remove users from the Users page. (The deletion of users was disabled, since the removal would be temporary—it would only be effective until the next log in.)

Filter the user list

Filtering the user list is useful if you want to find a specific user, or to update their details. Make sure you are on the USER MANAGEMENT page.

  • To filter by role, Admin or User, select the appropriate check boxes in the left pane.
  • To filter by name, hover on the Search button adjacent to the User Management header, and enter the text of the user's email or username.

Edit a user's password or role

To reset a user's password or to change a user's role:

  1. Click Administration in the right of the masthead, and click the Users tab.
  2. Hover on the user and click .
  3. Enter a new password or select/clear the Admin check box.

You can also use the user_management script to change a user's password, change the role of a non-admin user to an administrator, or create a new administrator. For details, see Manage user accounts with scripts.

Delete a user

To delete a user:

  1. Click Administration in the right of the masthead, and click the Users tab.
  2. Hover on a user and click . When you delete a user, the user is removed from the workspaces to which they were assigned, and any execution tokens generated by the user are also deleted.
