GUI web testing tutorial

The UFT tutorial for GUI web testing is a self-paced guide that teaches you the basics of testing your web app with UFT.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create and run automated GUI tests on a web app, and then analyze the run results.

Tutorial audience and scope

This tutorial is intended for users who are new to GUI testing in UFT.

In addition to GUI tests, UFT enables you to create and run API and business process tests. However, this tutorial reviews topics related to GUI testing on web apps only.

As such, while performing the steps outlined in this tutorial, you may notice other elements in UFT that are not covered here. These may be for BPT or API testing only, or for GUI testing on technologies other than web. They are not relevant for GUI web testing.

Additionally, this tutorial refers to file system paths and browser options in Windows 10 and Chrome. The paths in other operating systems or browsers may be slightly different.

Tip: If you will be creating business process tests, note that the procedures in this tutorial can mostly also be applied to creating keyword-driven components.
