Hi,

In order to see the agent on Chrome, go to Options> More Tools> HPE Unified Functional Testing Agent.

Make sure that is enabled and the version is an 14x version (you can see this on 'Details')

I'm waiting for your response.

Best Regards,

Hello Harika,

Regarding your concern about the recognition in the application you are trying to automate.

First at all it is very important to know the technologies that were used to develop the AUT, since UFT is based on technologies/controls and its versions to confirm its compatibility.

The best option to know under which tehcnologies Appian is developed is asking directly to the vendor or developers.

Once you get this information you can go through UFT addins and select the correct ones and if the unrecognition persist, we will need to check the compatibility from UFT against technology version and verify if those are custom controls or not.

I really would like to help you looking why Appian is not recognized, however there are several details that are required to know before automate with UFT against application.

UFT offers some sample applications that are based in Java, Flex, Web, .NET, Delphi within installation package that can help us to check and define if the recognition functionality is being affected directly UFT or if it is part of the above causes for AUT, but as mentioned in this case first we have to know the technologies used in Appian.

Warm regards,

Luis Alonso A.

Hi Luis Alonso,

Thanks for responding.Appian is developed on Java and it uses Web Services for connecting to some Web API.

Can you please let me know where I am going wrong in identifying Objects?

TIA

Harika, from what I have seen, it should work with web add-in. Becuase they are web forms right. Try few things specified below,  ( if its not web based.. then try with java add-in). for web follow the below steps..

1. first launch UFT and then the application. 

2. Try recording. Before you start recording, in the record and run settings, change the settings to record on all open applications.

3. IE settings. Make sure in IE add-on manager,  HP functional testing agent is enabled. Add the site to trusted sites.

Let us know.. how it goes.

Hi Harika

On Chrome the objects are being recognized as WinObjects or WebElements?

Are you ensure that the Agent for chrome is enabled?

Which version of UFT and Chrome are you currently using?

Does the problem only happens while spying/recording on this application?

The zoom of the Page is cofigured at 100% level? also the resolution scaling of your computer?

Please let us know this information to isolate the cause of the recognition problem. I'm waiting for your response.
