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.

MF UFT one is a good solution for automation coverage. Using UFT one would create a stable automation framework that would suit multiple ways of automation maintenance and execution. Also UFT one supports many browsers and applications that I have heavily implemented in ERP, Mainframe, and other ERP web applications. In UFT one automation developer can implement clear logic using programming snippets to pass or fail scenarios. Also, this is a great tool that can leverage the BPT framework. This can be executed using through other 3rd party tools like Jenkins, Postman, and MF ALM.

In our program when we decided to reduce time to market a major roadblock identified was long regression cycles. All regression suites were manually executed which makes it impossible to increase production deployments, ultimately impacting time to market. So the decision was made to automate the regression and functional test cases using HP UFT. The decision regarding the tool was made considering three factors:

1) Skill level of existing QA team, no knowledge of JAVA scripting but fair knowledge of VB scripting.

2) The regression did not involve only UI testing but back-end (Oracle, Greenplum) & web service testing as well. HP UFT supports all of them.

3) We were using HP ALM for project management and obviously, UFT is very compatible with ALM in several ways.

Also, HP UFT was quite easy to learn and the QA team got proficient in UFT pretty quickly. We were able to automate 2000+ regression test cases in 4 months. Automation not only helped in reducing time to market but also helps in increasing the delivery quality.

HP UFT is being used in the software testing department. Being a chemical manufacturing company, SAP is being used across the organization in multiple departments. Along with SAP there are other technologies that are also used.With new releases, upgrades and batches, it is extremely critical to test the updated software/application properly. With HP UFT the same can be done without so much manual intervention. The tool solved the purpose of automatic testing.

HPE UFT (and previously HP QTP and before that Mercury WinRunner) has long been our main test automation tool of choice and underpins the majority of our regression testing activities. The versatility of it means it is also used to load data for the training department to use thus speeding up their work too. Without a robust automation suite, businesses would not be competitive in this day and age and for me, UFT helps to fulfill that need with ease.

The main use of the HP UTF Suite is for DevOps activities which include automated tests and continuous integration for the builds being developed for the 9 applications/products which are being enhanced and built by the client. The product is mainly used by the business analysts and the QA testing team. HP UTF being the enhanced version of QTP, it addresses the issue of making tests automated and then running these same via a CI tool like TeamCity or Jenkins.

Also, as it integrates with the HP ALM product line (we are using it to store requirements), we connect to the requirements and the defects encountered for each of the JIRA cards. It also allows the users to work with databases and execute against web services and REST services, along with the usual UI tests for web. Integration with HP Loadrunner makes it possible to run performance tests also, which are valuable for the client and the services they have on offer. Integration with these other tools allows us to maintain a specific stack and lower the TCO across the organization and bring in a valuation and Agile practises across to all the teams involved. We have even started working on the concept of having a central team to work across all the projects.

HPE UFT is our platform of choice for automation needs. In my current organization, we have automated custom, commercial, ERP and mobile apps using UFT. It's a great tool and supports multiple technologies. The skill inventory is easily available. It also connects very well with other HPE suites of products like ALM and HPE Mobile Center.

HP UFT is being used by the testing team in the company, the main use of HP UFT is to automate the regression testing, that is for projects where we do application implementations or enhancements to our current functionality on any of the platforms like Salesforce, Oracle, PeopleSoft or SAP. Testing is a phase of the project, during this phase the team creates manual functional tests that get executed during the first release or sprint. A few of those manual tests get selected in order to be part of the regression test suite. Those selected tests are then automated with the use of HP UFT in order to execute multiple regression cycles without having to allocate testers to this task. With HP UFT, the tests can be automatically executed with minimal supervision.
