Use the Edge Agent for UFT

Note: For the most up-to-date list of supported versions of Microsoft Edge, see the Unified Functional Testing Product Availability Matrix.

UFT communicates with Microsoft Edge via the Microsoft WebDriver to test Web applications running in Edge browsers. However, you must ensure that the Microsoft WebDriver is present in the UFT installation folder:

  1. Prerequisite

    The download and copy steps below may require Administrator permissions.

  2. Open the Microsoft WebDriver page. Follow Microsoft's instructions to download or install the correct version of the Microsoft WebDriver for your Microsoft Edge version.

    Note: We recommend updating the WebDriver version after performing Windows 10 updates, as specific WebDriver versions are required for each Edge version.

  3. Copy the downloaded or installed MicrosoftWebDriver.exe file to the <UFT installation folder>\bin directory.

    Tip: If the installed WebDriver file's location is not immediately obvious, consult Microsoft's documentation. For example, the file may be located in your System folder, under C:\Windows\SystemWOW64 or C:\Windows\System32.

  4. Start the Edge Agent for UFT from one of the following:

    • The desktop shortcut

    • Start -> All apps ->Micro Focus > Micro Focus Unified Functional Testing -> Edge Agent for UFT

    • In the Record and Run Settings dialog box, select Edge as the Browser type

    Note:  

    • UFT cannot spy, record, or run tests on an Edge browser window opened before UFT.
    • In UFT 15.0, the agent is named Edge Agent for Functional Testing.
