Define seat licenses with the command line

Define seat licenses in the command line by running the License Installer and appending the following:

seat "<license key string>"

For example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\Unified Functional Testing\bin\HP.UFT.LicenseInstall.exe" seat "<key> \" Micro Focus Unified Functional Testing"

Note:

  • If the license key contains a quotation mark character (") in the license key string, add a backslash character (\) before the quotation mark.

  • If the license key file is saved locally, run the License Installer, appending the following code and wrapping the path to the license key file in quotes:

    seat "<path to the license key file>"

    For example:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\Unified Functional Testing\bin\HP.UFT.LicenseInstall.exe" seat "Downloads\HPE UFT-licfile.dat"

For more details, see UFT licensing.

Consume concurrent licenses with the command line

These steps configure UFT to consume concurrent licenses installed on the AutoPass License Server.

Verify available licenses on the AutoPass License Server

Run the License Installer, appending the following:

licenses <primary server name/address>:<port> [<secondary server name address>:<port>]

For example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\Unified Functional Testing\bin\HP.UFT.LicenseInstall.exe" licenses 11.11.111.111:5814

Note: secondary server name/address and port are optional.

The available licenses are displayed by unique ID and version.

Consume a concurrent license

  1. Run the License Installer to verify which licenses are available on the AutoPass License Server, as described above.

    The available licenses are displayed by unique ID and version.

  2. Run the License Installer again, this time appending the following command and parameters:

    concurrent <license ID> <license version> <primary server name/address>:<port> [<secondary server name/address>:<port>] [/force]

    Address

    Optional.

    The address format must be identical to the one used in the Main tab of the AutoPass License Server Configuration pane.

    For details, see the Autopass License Server User Guide , downloaded with your AutoPass License Server installation.

    Ports

    Optional.

    The Default port for the primary and secondary servers is 5814.

    /force

    Optional.

    /force saves the license installation information even if the current installation fails. In subsequent sessions, UFT or LeanFT will check the listed license server for the listed license.

For example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\Unified Functional Testing\bin\HP.UFT.LicenseInstall.exe" concurrent 11.11.111.111:5814 /force

Modify server connection protocol

Run the License Installer, appending:

  • Primary license server: config protocol.primary <protocol>
  • Secondary license server: config protocol.second <protocol>

where <protocol> is http or https as needed.
