Define license consumption behavior
You can configure various aspects of license consumption. Edit the UFT.xml file associated with the license server, or the config*.json files that store UFT Developer configuration data.
Configure the fallback mechanism and idle time
Define how your UFT Developer installation uses licenses in the UFT.xml file.
This file is located on your UFT Developer computer at: C:\ProgramData\autopass\apls\licenseserver\data\conf\
Open the UFT.xml file in a text editor, then edit and add keys and values in the following format:
Edit and add keys to configure the licensing fallback mechanism or set maximum idle time.
Depending on the license configured on your UFT Developer machine, define whether your system uses the Licensing fallback mechanism (Windows) by setting the following values to true:
|UFT Developer license||Entry key value|
|UFT OneRuntime Engine||
Note: If there are users using the UFT Developer IDE plugins to create and modify tests, do one of the following:
Define the number of minutes, with no keyboard or mouse input, after which UFT Developer releases the currently used concurrent license.
In the UFT.xml file, add the following line of code:
The number in this entry key is the number of minutes of inactivity.
For example, the following syntax defines that your license expires after 10 minutes of inactivity.
By default, UFT Developer waits for 120 seconds for the license server to respond, before returning a "no license available" indication.
If you experience license availability errors because your license server is slow to respond, you can extend this timeout period. In the UFT Developer config.json file, locate and modify the licenseServerConnectionTimeout definition (in milliseconds, default = 120000).
To modify the license server timeout:
On the UFT Developer computer, open the config.json file in a text editor.
If you are using UFT Developer as a grid, open grid-config.json or grid-node-config.json, depending on the role of this UFT Developer instance.
On Windows, the file is located in %localappdata%\LeanFT\config\. If this folder does not exist, create it.
On Linux/Mac, open the file from the following location:
Linux ~/.leanft/config Mac ~/Library/Application Support/LeanFT/config
Note: If this is your first time editing the configuration file, the config folder will be empty. You need to copy the file from:<UFT Developer installation>/lwe/lightweight-engine/config
Modify the licenseServerConnectionTimeout setting, save the file, and restart the runtime engine.
