User account actions and access key management

You can manage your access keys and UFT Mobile account from the Keys Management and User Account menus in the top-right of the masthead. Using the User Account menu, you can change your password or log out of UFT Mobile.

Change your password

Click or hover on the User Account menu to change your password. The default settings of UFT Mobile allow non-admin users to log in with the same password for 180 days. Twenty days before the password expires, UFT Mobile issues a warning, asking you to change your password. If your password expires, you must contact a UFT Mobile administrator to reset it.

When changing a password, it must be different from your current one and must contain:

  • from 6-20 characters

  • at least one digit from 0-9

  • at least one lowercase English character

  • at least one uppercase English character

Generate and manage access keys (non-admin users)

To run a test in UFT Mobile using a testing tool, you may need an execution key. An execution key can be used to connect to UFT Mobile from a testing tool, as an alternative to using a username and password for authentication of the connection. You enter the execution key in the testing tool settings or in Appium scripts. Note that when using Single-Sign On (SSO), an execution token is mandatory to connect to UFT Mobile from a testing tool.

Non-admin users can view and manage their execution keys by clicking Keys Management in the top-right of the window. The Access Keys page provides details of your execution keys.

Note: An expired access key is indicated by the "Expired" prefix.

To generate a new execution key:

  1. In the Access Keys page, Click + Generate new. Enter a name and (optionally a) description for the access key.

  2. Click GENERATE. The Client ID and secret for executing tests in the UFT Mobile lab is displayed.

    Important: Once you close this window, you will no longer be able to retrieve the access key, so you must either copy or save the credentials.

  3. Admin users can generate execution tokens in the Administration menu > ACCESS KEYS. For details, see Access key management.

To use an execution key with a testing tool:

To use the execution key with Micro Focus testing tools, click COPY KEY to place the generated credentials on the clipboard. Click DOWNLOAD to save it to a text file that you can reference at a later time.

For UFT 14.53 Patch 1 and higher, enter the tools connection in the UFT Mobile connection settings. For details, see Mobile Options pane in the UFT Help Center.

To use the execution key with Appium tests, click COPY to copy all of the listed items UFT Mobile URL, oauthClientId, etc., to the clipboard. Click DOWNLOAD to save all of the items to a text file that you can reference at a later time. Set the oauthClientId and oauthClientSecret capabilities. For details, see UFT Mobile Appium Capabilities. ]
