HP UFT, or Unified Functional Testing, has been widely utilized for automation across various organizations and projects. Users have employed it for different types of testing, including desktop application testing, cross-browser testing, and API testing. UFT one has been implemented to create a stable automation framework for multiple ways of maintenance and execution. Users have heavily implemented UFT one in ERP, Mainframe, and other ERP web applications. With UFT one, automation developers can implement clear logic using programming snippets to pass or fail scenarios. The BPT framework can be leveraged with UFT one, and it can be executed through third-party tools like Jenkins, Postman, and MF ALM.

HP UFT has been used to automate regression and functional test cases, reducing time to market and increasing delivery quality. It has been chosen based on the skill level of the existing QA team and compatibility with back-end and web service testing. The QA team quickly became proficient in UFT and automated over 2000 regression test cases in four months. HP UFT is mainly used for DevOps activities, including automated tests and continuous integration for multiple applications/products. It integrates with HP ALM for requirements management and JIRA for defect tracking.

HP UFT allows users to work with databases, execute against web services and REST services, and perform UI tests for web. Integration with HP Loadrunner enables performance testing. It is used for test automation projects across various applications, including mainframe, web, and desktop-based applications. HP UFT is also used by the testing team to automate regression testing for application implementations or enhancements on platforms like Salesforce, Oracle, PeopleSoft, or SAP. Automated tests with UFT allow multiple regression cycles to be executed without allocating testers to the task. Moreover, UFT has been used to convert a large regression suite into a robust automation suite that runs unattended for the IT department.

Simple Front End: Novice users have found the simple front end of UFT to be helpful for easily grasping the basics of automation and gaining confidence in using the tool.

Scalability: Users appreciate UFT's ability to scale up and run tests across multiple machines from a single controller, such as ALM. This capability allows them to execute hundreds of tests overnight, saving time and effort.

Active Support Community: The active support community surrounding UFT, consisting of both official HPE sources and independent users, provides a valuable resource for getting help and assistance when encountering problems with the tool. Many users have benefited from this supportive network.

Expensive Cost: Some users have found the cost of the software to be expensive, especially for startups or small organizations. They feel that the pricing makes it a very expensive tool and suggest that HP should consider offering more cost-effective alternatives.

Script Maintenance and Resource Consumption: Users report that maintaining test scripts is a pain and mention that the software is not lightweight, consuming a lot of memory. They find it frustrating when the software breaks, causing them frustration due to its simplicity of record and playback.

Limited Cross-Browser Compatibility: Some users have mentioned that UFT should improve in terms of cross-browser compatibility and supporting different operating systems, particularly Mac OS. They find frequent browser crashing issues during long execution cycles to be problematic.

Users recommend UFT for automating various applications because it covers all their needs and is easy to use. They suggest trying the trial version before purchasing and advise self-exploration. Despite acknowledging its high cost, users consider UFT as the best tool in the market for automation purposes. One user specifically highlights its usefulness for end-to-end test automation of ERP solutions as it can save time and money. However, there is a cautionary recommendation from another user who warns against purchasing the product, stating that it is unfinished and contains errors.

UFT One is well suited
1. Good tool for all kind of applications (S/4 Hana->DB validations->Frontend legacy applications) through one tool
2. Integrate many 3rd party applications
Less appropriate
1. It should support all applications within organizations rather than looking other tools
2. Taking a bit time to the market when preparing script/component
3. Need a build interface/UI for less time to prepare an automation script/componenta

Desktop automation is well suited and all CI integrations are possible with HP UFT. It also requires less coding experience from the person who needs to develop automation scripts. Web automation should be improved a lot, in the sense of meeting the demands of the challenges of web automation.

Mainframe applications are easy to automate as it classifies all the objects into three categories only. It becomes much less complicated and faster to automate & run. In some scenarios like PDF form filling it is very tedious to automate. Descriptive programming may take a lot of effort and still yield unsatisfactory results.

When we need to execute the same test in different browsers cross-browser testing), UFT is the best tool as it supports all the major browsers. In a smaller organisation budget is the key, UFT will not be wiser to use. Since in my program as well we are able to get even- after 2 years. I will recommend any open source tools like Selenium for automation where a budget is key. Selenium can integrate with just about anything to give you a robust framework such as Maven or Ant for source code compilation, Test NG to drive tests, Jenkins for continuous integration and different reports or dashboards like allure reports.

UFT is well suited if the price is not an issue, and if the requirement is about testing different technologies.
If the application is based on Legacy platforms like Siebel or Mainframe, UFT fares quite well.
For low cost web-based projects, there are other cheap and open source tools available.
If it is about API testing or Mobile Testing, it is better to use other tools like TOSCA.

The tool has evolved to be the market leader in paid GUI testing, at last count, there are over a dozen add-ins (not including subtypes) that can be selected at startup based upon the technology of the application being tested. This includes the standard web types to new mobile applications. It can be plugged into your development tool of choice and reports the results to whatever level you desire.

It is well suited for functional automation and also manual test scenarios. It is not a tool to be used for load or performance tests. It's mainly an automation test tool, but good to be combined as a product with HP ALM and then used to store requirements and defects also, so that tracking and managing the same is easy. Best if the user knows VBScript and also has taken some training on the HP UTF Tool, before the user starts to work on it.

U have used QTP by it self, and have used UFT for many years for doing GUI and API testing. Since both types of these tests are combined in one tool, it is easier to run them.


UFT is excellent for nightly regression of Web based applications. Our applications were Java applications, and we used UFT to run our automation scripts.


It is not a great tool for a quick performance test. Would like to see some basic features of Load Runner in UFT for a quick performance test

It's excellent to automate testing for applications such as SAP, PeopleSoft, SugarCRM, Oracle, web browsers etc. HP UFT is almost ready out of the box to support those and many other platforms. Where sometimes HP UFT falls short is in applications or web pages where dynamic or media plugins are present, such as flash, video etc. But in general for testing of data driven end-to-end business processes HP UFT is the best.
