Running GUI tests from Business Process Monitor

Relevant for: GUI tests only

Consider the following guidelines when running tests from Business Process Monitor:

  • Before you try to run a test in Business Process Monitor, check which versions of UFT are supported by your version of Business Process Monitor. For details, see the Business Process Monitor documentation.

  • To run a test in Business Process Monitor, UFT must be installed and closed on the Business Process Monitor computer

  • Business Process Monitor can run only one test at a time. Make sure that the previous UFT run session is finished before starting to run another test.

  • Transaction breakdown is not supported for tests created with UFT.

  • Tests must be zipped before uploading them to Business Service Management Admin.

    If you make changes to your local copy of a test after uploading it to Business Service Management, upload the zipped test again to enable Business Process Monitor to run the test with your changes.

  • UFT cannot run tests on a computer that is logged off, locked, or running UFT as a non-interactive service.

  • You should start Business Process Monitor by running the magentproc.exe program when running tests from Business Process Monitor.

  • You cannot use the ResultDir environment variable when running a test in Business Process Monitor.

Tip: You can simulate how the test will run from Business Process Monitor by using Silent Test Runner. For details, see Silent Test Runner.
