Support for Chrome Incognito mode

[Incognito mode is a stealth mode where Chrome won’t track your activities you perform on the web]

To work with this mode, you need to allow some settings in Google Chrome browser.

  1. In Chrome, go to Tools > Extensions and check the developer mode.
  2. Make sure that the UFT agent at the bottom is enabled.
  3. Check “Allow in Incognito mode”.
  4. Make sure you have a single window of Chrome open during record/replay.

  2. hi, someone can help me – I have a QTP script, saved & ran on QTP10/UFT11 …etc. But recently upgraded to 12.51 and while running the same script on IE 11, when it opens up the browser, clicks on any image button it brings up not only required a window as tab but also bring up an extra separate blank window (browser).

    Could you tell me what is happening in here and how to avoid the Blank window?…. The expected is it should just bring up a window which is currently happening but as a tab.

    So, i need it like:
    1. It just display it a separate window (the one currently showing as a tab)
    2. Avoid the blank window

    • @Nishant: Browser version change seems to be the culprit. Check where are they failing and if they are invoking Smart Identification.

  8. Ankur,
    We just got UFT 12.02 and it does not run scripts recorded on earlier QTP versions…i get object NOT found…i tried removing the name property from object repository and it enabled the smart identification…and i still got the same error…How can i run UFT scripts that are recorded on QTP to run well on IE 9 ?

    Reply
    • Scripts recorded prior to QTP 10 won’t work directly in UFT 12.5, you would need to first open them with QTP 10/11 save it and then try to open them with UFT 12.5

      In your case it seems some issue with object identification, check these tips

  16. Dear Ankur Jain,

    I have one issue about Regular Expression.

    VbWindow(“frmABTInventory”).VbComboBox(“cboProducts”).Select “Nails”

    Could you please kindly tell me how can I use Regular Expression for “Nails” ?

    Thanks sincerely,

  19. Hi Ankur,

    I am using UFT 11.5 and mozilla V28 browser for our application testing. I have installed two pathces (UFT_00044 + UFT_00068) as described in the browser support matrix. But when I spy the objects on mozilla, objects are not identified as standard objects (showing as Window: Mozilla Firefox etc).
    Please let me know do I need to install any other patch to work with Mozilla V28.

  20. QTP 12.1 is not identifying Mozilla 31 .

    Could you please suggest what could be the reason .

  21. Dear Ankur,

    Have checked with UFT 12.0 & Firefox 27.0, it looks does not support this version or would require any specific patch.

    Kindly suggest,
    Thanks,
    Santosh

    Reply
    • @Santosh: Please have a look, If it is supported, it would be mentioned in the matrix above.

      Reply
      • Yes Ankur, as per the given matrix it is supposed to support. But I see it doesnot.

        Also, a quick query, do we have to make any further setting on installation of specific patch? As I have tried even 11.0,11.5 & 12. In none UFT I found recognize FF/Chrome browsers. If I am missing any step. Thank you.

      • @Santosh: As of now, any browser other than IE would only provide replay support. Regarding additional settings/patches etc, I would suggest you to check the ReadMe file that comes with every Patch and Service Pack.

      • Ankur,
        What do you mean by any browser other than IE would only provide replay support. We have done all of our UFT automation in IE with no issues. But now we are being asked to automate a web app that was built for Chrome only. We cannot recognize any individual objects on the webpage. The webpage comes back as one big objct. Is this the issue you mentioned about the extensions or we can’t automate chrome?
        Thanks, Mary
