  1. Some of the properties of some of the controls are aligned to be uniform across different browsers

  2. Additional web objects supported on chrome.

  3. Now you can specify the browsers for the recording and execution of tests. You can also parameterize the browser from the data table/Test Parameters.

  • LeanFT: You can now use LeanFT for developing the automated scripts using your development IDE.

  • Lighter, HTML based results: Now, you can instruct UFT to generate the HTML based reports. These results will have all of the details available in the report viewer, including Screen captures and data table)


  • Add functional libraries as a solution Item: you can now add functional libraries as the part of the functional libraries. This will help us in moving the common functional libraries to the solution instead of keeping them in each test.

  • Integration with Git Source code repositories: Now you can store UFT tests in Git repositories and work directly on these tests from UFT.

  • Run UFT without UFT IDE: Now you can use the UFT’s runtime engine for executing the tests without installing the complete UFT IDE.

  1. Hello Sumeet, Is there a way using UFT 12.5 we can store the value in Global DataSheet which we can use it in another action that follows at the end of the test.

    I am using something as described below, But it doesnt seem to set the value in the Global Data Table

    submissionID = Browser(“Logon”).Page(“GeneralInformationPage”).WebElement(“SubmissionID”).GetROProperty(“innertext”)
    print submissionID
    DataTable.Value (“User”, dtGlobalSheet) = submissionID


    • Hi Tilaknath,

      UFT creates the sequence of actions to be executed at runtime using Datatable, so you will have to make sure that, it fits into that sequence properly.

      There can be different things which you can try

      Instead of writing it into the datatable, you can also create environment variable or call the Action with the parameter “SubmissionID”

      Let me know, if you need any other details.


      • Hello Sumeet,

        Web elements are not recognized by firefox browser, The test doesn’t seem to execute in firefox version 40 and above eventhough UFT 12.51 states it supports it, Is there any additional installation that needs to be done for UFT to support firefox?
