Automatically submit defects to an ALM project

This task describes how to set the Run options in UFT to automatically submit defects to your ALM project for specific failed steps in your GUI test, eliminating the need to remember to submit these defects after a run session.

When configured, defects are submitted to ALM for checkpoint errors and events defined by the user to be included in the Run Results (Reporter.ReportEvent events).

Prerequisites

You must be connected to ALM before you start.

In UFT, make sure you are connected to the relevant ALM project prior to the run session (ALM > ALM Connection). The run results must be stored in this ALM project.

Note: If you are using the Run Results Viewer on a computer running Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016, you must connect to ALM the first time with administrative privileges.
