This topic describes how to connect to your Mobile Center lab from UFT.
In UFT, browse to Tools > Options > GUI Testing > Mobile.
Define and then test your connection.
The IP or DNS address of your Mobile Center server, including access port. If you are accessing a machine on the cloud, enter the instance’s DNS name.
FQDN (fully qualified domain name) values are case sensitive.
Default port: 8080. Modify this value during installation if needed.
User name and Password
Enter your login credentials for the Mobile Center server.
Define whether to use SSL when you connect. This is enabled by default.
If you are using CA certificates, install the certificates on the UFT computer. For details, see SSL with CA certificates.
Use proxy settings
Select to connect using a proxy. Required for websocket communication.
Proxy type. Defines the type of proxy to use when connecting to the Mobile Center server:
Proxy address. The proxy IP address and port. If System proxy is selected, this field is populated automatically, and is read-only.
Specify authentication. Enables you to connect to the Mobile Center server using a specific account.
Proxy user name and password. The credentials used to connect to the Mobile Center server, if Specify authentication is selected.
Shared Space and Workspace
Click Get Workspaces to get a list of available shared spaces and workspaces.
Then, from the dropdown lists, select the shared space and workspace you want to connect to.
Note: Shared spaces are relevant only for Mobile Center servers shared space support enabled. For more details, see the Mobile Center Help.
Show device during test run, required for Insight and bitmap checkpoints
Enables you to watch the actions performed on the device in a remote access window.
This setting does not affect remote access windows that are opened manually or when running tests on AWS.
- Select this option to watch tests performed, and for steps that must "see" objects in your app, such as for Insight, Bitmap, or Text area checkpoints.
- Clear this option to run tests silently and improve performance.
Troubleshoot your connection
If your connection fails, try any of the following:
Check the connection details defined
Check the network connection
Verify that the Mobile Center is available and accessible, and that the port specified for Mobile Center is available.
If you are trying to connect to a specific Mobile Center project, verify that your project is configured correctly on a mutli-project enabled server. For more details, see the Mobile Center Help.
Accessing your device connector
If your connection test succeeds, but you are still unable to show the remote access window with the device, check that the device connector is accessible.
If you have a proxy defined and are unable to access the device connector, define your proxy as follows instead:
UFT Options dialog box. Select the Use proxy settings option, and select the System Proxy type.
Internet Options. Add the IP address of your device connector as an exception in your machine's Internet Options proxy settings (Connections > LAN settings > Proxy server > Advanced).
