ALM Creates a folder : _BptTemporaryExecutionFolder_ when runing BPT

Status : New Idea
over 1 year ago

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR: When running an automated component from UFT hosted in ALM, ALM creates a folder named _BptTemporaryExecutionFolder_ in test lab, doesn't matter if the component pass or fails. There are no errors or issues, but this folder contains 2 test sets, we would like to understand what is causing this and why, we open and execute test like that everyday. ALM Documentation doesn't say anything UFT Documentation doesn't say anything SSO doesn't have any article about it We are looking for the following answers:

  1. What is this folder for
  2. Why are there some test sets
  3. If it is a new function, please share the documentation
  4. How can we stop ALM from creating this. This is happening in all the machines All projects

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: Customer does not want this folder to be created in the test lab and want documentation about it.

  1. What is this folder for
  2. Why are there some test sets
  3. If it is a new function, please share the documentation
  4. How can we stop ALM from creating this

HOW-TO-REPRODUCE:

  1. Create a blank project
  2. Create automated components
  3. add the components to a test
  4. open the test from UFT
  5. Run the test It will create the _BptTemporaryExecutionFolder_ folder under the test lab

ENVIRONMENT: (Hardware, OS, OS Version, Browser, etc) OS: Linux ALM Version 12.50.59(Patch 1) UFT Version 12.53.2027.0 IS IT PATCH REGRESSION (IF YES, FROM WHICH PATCH)?: N
