Web Remote Connections Pane (Options Dialog Box > GUI Testing Tab)

This pane enables you to define connection information for controls in your Web application developed with advanced Web technologies, including Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF), Electron, JxBrowser, NW.js, and Microsoft Edge WebView2.

Access the Remote Connections pane

To access the Web Remote Connections pane, first do one of the following:

  • Ensure that a GUI test, action, or component is in focus in the document pane.

Define remote connections

Define a remote debugging address for each Web application to enable UFT One to find your application objects.

To define a remote connection:

  1. Click to add a new URL. Define your address URL and port.

    The port required for this URL is defined by the developer during application design.

  2. Select the Connect checkbox to establish the connection when you start recording.

  3. Set the framework.

    • If you are testing objects developed using NW.js, in the Framework column select NW.js.

    • If you are testing objects developed using Microsoft Edge WebView2, in the Framework column select WebView2.

    • For other frameworks, leave this field defined as Default.

Add as many connections as you need. To remove a connection, select it in the table, and click Delete .
