Run mode

Define run mode settings to instruct UFT how to run your test or component.

Normal mode (default)

Runs your test or component with the execution arrow displayed to the left of each step or statement as it is performed.

If the test contains multiple actions, the tree in the Keyword View Item column expands to display the steps, and the Editor displays the script, of the currently running action.

Delay each step execution by. Specify the time in milliseconds that UFT should wait before running each consecutive step (up to a maximum of 10000 ms.).

Fast mode

Runs your test or component without the execution arrow displayed to the left of the Keyword View or Editor (for tests) and does not expand the item tree or display the script of each action as it runs.

This option requires fewer system resources.

Note: When running a test set from ALM, tests or components are automatically run in Fast mode, even if Normal mode is selected.

Submit defects

Select Submit a defect to ALM for each failed step to instruct UFT to automatically submit a defect to ALM for each failed step in your test.

This option is available only when using the Run Results Viewer.

Enable other products to run tests and components

Select Allow other Micro Focus products to run tests and components to enable other ADM products to run tests and components on this computer, such as ALM and Test Batch Runner.

Note: If the Windows Firewall is turned on on your computer, and you want to enable business process tests to be run on your computer from a remote ALM client, you must also manually create a firewall exception for the bp_exec_agent.exe remote agent.

For details, see Enable the Remote Agent.
