How to make working GUI Test into application that other users can use?



I currently have a GUI Test that goes into ALM and exports the Defects into an Excel File which my colleges can then use to generate summaries and charts as they wish.


I am wondering if there is a way to take this test and make it into an application that they can then use without having to open UFT everytime they want to update the list of defects.  


My end goal is to make it so they can push a button and the Excel would be updated with the latest data from ALM.  Is there a way to do this and if so, could you please point me in the right direction?  If you can think of another way this is possible, I would very much appreciate any help you are willing to give!  Thank you very much.


Have a great day,

Re: How to make working GUI Test into application that other users can use?

First off, are you using QTP/UFT to actually record and replay actions against the ALM UI? That by itself could be problematic.

An alternative would be to write a stand-alone program that uses the ALM OTA API or REST API instead of using UFT.

You could also create macros within Excel itself that would access the ALM APIs to extract the data.
