What's new video
Watch the What's New video to learn about the new features included in UFT Mobile 3.5.
During a recorded manual test, submit a defect directly from UFT Mobile to Octane. Relevant details such as the steps performed, screenshots, and the device log are added automatically. For details, see Defect Tracking System integration, and Manual testing.
We've added record and replay support for Android and iOS apps built using the Google Flutter SDK. For more details, see Flutter SDK apps.
Audio streaming for iOS
You can now hear audio from a remote iOS device on your PC during manual testing, and test functionality that requires audio validation. For details, see Device control panel.
UFT Mobile 3.5 introduces support for LDAP groups, to allow centralized, more efficient user management. The administrator can grant an LDAP group access to relevant devices and applications in the organization, without having to manage permissions for each user separately. When the administrator assigns one or more LDAP groups to a workspace, all the users included in these groups can access the workspace. For details, see Use UFT Mobile with LDAP.
ADM Consumption Token license
UFT Mobile 3.5 supports the ADM Consumption Token license. Now you can use one license with multiple Micro Focus Application Delivery Management (ADM) products.
This release provides improved performance for large-scale deployments.
The embedded Appium version was updated to 1.18.3.
Manual testing enhancements
Now you can manually add steps to the step report, delete steps, and delete a screenshot for a step. The date and time that a step was performed is added after the step in the zip file, and in the defect. You can also record tests on Amazon Device Farm devices. For details, see Manual testing.
Tracking device metrics can assist you in detecting and analyzing issues with your apps. Additional device metrics are available in the UFT Mobile wizard when using the latest version of UFT One (version 15.0.2): WiFi connection, WiFi signal strength, iOS thermal state, and available disk space. For details, see UFT Mobile wizard.
For more convenient lab management, the Users tab is now removed. User management options are now incorporated in the Management tab, so that actions for managing the lab are now in one place. For details, see Lab and workspace management.
The UFT Mobile server installation options give you the flexibility to:
- Install the UFTM server without the embedded connector.
- Specify the folder for temporary files used by the UFTM service.
This release includes support for CentOS/RHEL version 8.
The administrator can now define the maximum duration of connector and execution keys according to the organization's security policies. If defined, users generating new keys need to set an expiration date within the allowed time period. For details, see Administration Settings.
