Set up UFT One for advanced mobile testing

This topic describes how to set up your Digital Lab devices and the UFT One testing environment for advanced mobile testing. This provides you with access to all the devices and apps available on Digital Lab.

For basic mobile testing, on one device at a time, see Set up UFT One for basic mobile testing.

Set up Digital Lab to integrate with UFT One

Before you connect from UFT One, set up Digital Lab and the devices you want to test from UFT One.

Enable browser cookies

Prepare your iOS apps for testing

Hybrid or native iOS apps

If you are testing hybrid or native mobile apps on iOS, you may need to prepare your apps before you start, including packaging and signing.

For details, see the Digital Lab Help.

Flutter-based apps

You can test Android and iOS packaged apps developed with the Google Flutter SDK. When working with iOS apps, prepare the apps as described in the Digital Lab Help.

Handle your apps after a Digital Lab upgrade

If you've upgraded Digital Lab, ensure that the app you are testing is compatible with the current version of Digital Lab.

To reinstall apps after an upgrade:

  1. Remove all apps that were installed using the previous version. Do this on all relevant devices.

  2. Before running existing tests, select the Install check box in the Record and Run Settings to instruct Digital Lab to install the app before running it.

Additionally, load the Web Add-in if you are testing any of the following:

  • Hybrid apps

  • Web apps using the Chrome emulator

  • Web apps using the Digital Lab Browser app through Digital Lab

Tip: If you want to create new tests, load the add-ins from the UFT One Add-in Manager. For details, see Manage add-ins. If you are modifying or running existing tests, UFT One will load the necessary add-ins when you open the tests.
