Device description properties

The Device test object supports the description properties listed in the table below.

Object description properties can be used in the object repository description, in programmatic descriptions, in checkpoint and output value steps, and as argument values for the GetTOProperty and GetROProperty methods.

Using the GetROProperty and CheckProperty methods, you can retrieve and/or check only the values of the following properties in the application during a run session. You can also use these properties with the WaitProperty, Check, and Output methods.

Property Name


extraAppsThe applications to use for the test run (when multiple applications are selected in the test's Record and Run settings).

Requires UFT Mobile version 3.4 or later.

The fleet type of the device.

Note: This property is relevant when the source property's value is AWS and HOSTED (available in UFT Mobile version 2022 or later).

Possible values:

  • any. (Default) Any of the following devices.
  • public. A public device stored on an AWS device farm or hosted by Micro Focus.
  • private. A private device stored on an AWS device farm or hosted by Micro Focus.

The unique device ID that identifies the device.

When learning a Device object, UFT One creates a test object without this property to avoid binding the test object to a specific device.

If you plan to test multiple devices in the same test, make sure to add the id property to the list of mandatory properties. This ensures that when UFT One learns the objects, it adds the objects under the correct Device test object in the object repository.

By default, during a run session, UFT One uses the device ID of the device specified in the Mobile Record and Run settings for the test. If the Device test object contains an ID description property, UFT One uses the identified device instead.

You can also add this property to the test object description manually, in which case, UFT One uses the device specified in the test object.


Requires UFT Mobile version 2022 or later.

The geographic location of the device. Relevant only if the fleetType property's value is public and the source property's value is HOSTED.

Possible values:

  • any. Any geographic location.

  • A value retrieved from UFT One.

manufacturerThe manufacturer of the device.
modelThe model name of the device.
ostypeThe operating system currently running on the device.
osversionThe operating system version currently running on the device.

The service that provides or hosts the device.

Possible values:
  • Any. The device is stored or provided by any of the supported sources.

  • UFTM. The device is stored on Digital Lab (UFT Mobile). (Default)

    Note: The value MC is supported as well, for backward compatibility.

  • AWS. The device is provided by an AWS device farm.

  • HOSTED. The device is hosted by Micro Focus.

UFT Mobile version 2022 or later:
