Micro Focus UFT Developer Review

Good stability but it is complex to set up and should support module-based testing


What is our primary use case?

I primarily use this solution for the automation of regression testing in SAP.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is stability.

What needs improvement?

This is a script-based tool and the usability needs to be improved.

Easier connectivity and integration with SAP would be helpful.

In the future, I would like to see module-based tests instead of scripting.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with UFT for about one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is quite good and we haven't had any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is not an issue except that you need to create quite a few scripts. It is not easy to just create new test cases for new solutions. When you have to consider other solutions or applications then it's a bit tricky.

The number of people using the UFT application is quite limited, at perhaps three or four. However, there are a couple of hundred people responsible for performing the tests it creates.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate the technical support as okay, but not better. There are bugs between UFT and HTLM that they have not been able to solve. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is complex because of the integrations. A lot of knowledge is required to do the scripting, we did not have it, and it is difficult to find. Our deployment took about two months.

What about the implementation team?

A consultant assisted us with the deployment and we were satisfied with the service.

What other advice do I have?

Ultimately, due to the scripting, integration, and other functionality that is missing, we may switch to another solution in the future.

I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
