Re-sign the Agent apps

The Agent apps are standard iOS applications that need to be installed on each device that you want to use with UFT Mobile.

More about the Agent apps

The Agent apps provide a communication channel between the device and UFT Mobile. The Agent apps must be re-signed with a Development certificate of an Apple Developer account, and a development provisioning profile belonging to the same account. The certificate and provisioning profile provide the identity of the developer, and the list of devices on which distribution of the app is allowed. Admin users view and manage the Agents apps in the Apps tab of the UFT Mobile console. For details, see Manage apps.

Re-sign the Agent apps

To simplify and support automation of the Agent app re-signing process, UFT Mobile administrators can set up automatic Agent signing.

Note: For cloud labs that support automatic signing with their own certificate (Micro Focus public and private devices, ADF public devices, and WeTest devices), there is no need to re-sign the Agent apps.

UFT Mobile on-premises deployments
  • Remote signing service
    Automatic signing requires a Mac machine that is always available, with a connection to the UFT Mobile server.

  • Embedded packager service
    You need a Development certificate of an Apple Developer account, and a development provisioning profile belonging to the same account.

For more details see, Automatic signing services.

To re-sign the Agent apps manually, see Package an iOS app manually with the packager service.

Before signing the Agents, make sure that your Mac machine meets the required system requirements. For details, see Support matrix.
