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.

    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.

  2. Hi Ankur

    QTP 12.1 is not identifying Mozilla 31 .

    Could you please suggest what could be the reason .

  3. 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

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

      • 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.

      • Mary

        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

    Hi, based on UFT PAM, IE 11 is not supported in UFT 11.5x but will be in UFT 12 (KM00654269).
