Enable the Micro Focus UFT Agent extension on Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based)

UFT One communicates with the Micro Focus UFT Agent Chromium Edge Extension to test Web applications running in Microsoft Chromium Edge. This topic describes how to install and enable the extension in your Chromium Edge browser.

Note: If you are using Microsoft Edge 79 or later, this is the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, which replaced the HTML-based Microsoft Edge Legacy. For the most up-to-date list of supported versions of Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, see the UFT One Support Matrix.


Your browser policy must allow you to install browser extensions. Otherwise, see Extension installation.
