Does LoadRunner Cloud support legacy UFT GUI scripts?

Jump to solution

According to current documentation, LoadRunner Cloud supports UFT Developer scripts for GUI Vuser. In previous versions of StormRunner Cloud, I recall there was support for UFT GUI scripts to be used as GUI Vuser. The documentation is no longer available online.

Are legacy UFT scripts still supported in LoadRunner Cloud? If yes, what prior versions of UFT is supported in LoadRunner Cloud and the public cloud load generators?

I appreciate if anyone in the community or Micro Focus product team can advise. Thanks!

Confirmed. LRC/SRL only supports UFT Developer (LeanFT) scripts with JUnit & Selenium.  Its Vuser type is GUI.  UFT GUI is never supported. The UFT Developer script is replayed on Linux.

Hello,

LoadRunner Cloud (current and prior versions) dosen't support UFT GUI scripts.

UFT Developer (LeanFT) script which uses JUnit testing framework & Selenium is supported.

What kinds of GUI scripts are you using?

For testing scenarios with browsers (web pages), we suggest TruClient.

If you have existing testing assets in Selenium (with either JUnit or mocha), you can also upload them to LRC to run them. For details, refer to https://admhelp.microfocus.com/srl/en/2019.12/Content/Storm/create_a_selenium_script.htm.

@sunbruce , Thank you for your prompt response and recommending possible solutions.

Are you certain LoadRunner Cloud, or formerly StormRunner Load, never supported GUI Vusers for UFT scripts?

In older documentation for StormRunner Load 3.5-3.7, I do recall seeing UFT as a recommended scripting tool and GUI Vuser license listed support for UFT when using only cloud load generators. Unfortunately this documentation is no longer accessible online. So I am curious if the functionality has been deprecated.

LoadRunner Professional documentation still shows support for UFT: link 

LoadRunner Enterprise documentation still shows support for UFT: link
