LeanFT supports a variety of license editions, giving you a different set of functionality.
The following license editions can be used to activate LeanFT:
LeanFT standalone, now called UFT Pro (LeanFT): UFT Pro (LeanFT)
UFT / LeanFT:
- UFT Enterprise
- UFT Ultimate
UFT Runtime Engine - enables test execution only.
If you are upgrading, and currently have an FT, QTP, or UFT license, you are not required to migrate to one of the new license types. LeanFT will continue to function with your existing license.
When upgrading, existing licenses are automatically renamed as follows:
- UFT license: Your license is automatically renamed to the UFT Enterprise license.
- LeanFT license: Your license is automatically renamed to the UFT Pro (LeanFT) license
Note: The licensing fallback is relevant only when working with concurrent licenses on Windows, and is not enabled by default.
When starting LeanFT, the Autopass License Server attempts to consume the exact license edition configured on the LeanFT machine, such as the UFT Enterprise or UFT Pro (LeanFT) license.
To modify this configuration on your Windows machine, see Define license usage behavior. Do this if you are concerned about the availability of the license edition configured on your LeanFT machine.
LeanFT consumes licenses in the following order, starting from the license edition configured on the LeanFT machine:
If the UFT Pro (LeanFT) license is configured on your LeanFT machine, but there is no available UFT Pro (LeanFT) license on the License Server, LeanFT will try to consume a UFT Enterprise license.
In turn, if no UFT Enterprise license is available, LeanFT will try to consume a UFT Ultimate license.
If the UFT Runtime Engine license is configured on your LeanFT machine but there is no available UFT Runtime Engine license, LeanFT will try to consume a UFT Pro (LeanFT) license.
In turn, if there is no available UFT Pro (LeanFT) license, LeanFT will try to consume a UFT Enterprise license, and so on.
Define how your LeanFT installation uses licenses in the HPE UFT.xml file.
This file is located on your LeanFT computer at: C:\ProgramData\HP\HP AutoPass License Server\AutoPass\LicenseServer\data\conf\.
Note: If you are upgrading from a previous UFT or LeanFT version, you must upgrade your Autopass License Server to version 9.3 or higher to access this file.
Open the HPE UFT.xml file in a text editor, then edit and add keys and values in the following format:
Edit and add keys to do the following:
Depending on the license configured on your LeanFT machine, define whether your system uses the licensing fallback mechanism by setting the following values to true:
|LeanFT license||Entry key value|
|UFT Pro (LeanFT)||
|UFT Runtime Engine||
Note: If there are LeanFT users using the LeanFT IDE plugins to create and modify tests, do one of the following:
Define the number of minutes, with no keyboard or mouse input, after which LeanFT releases the currently used concurrent license.
In the HPE UFT.xml file, add the following line of code:
The number in this entry key is the number of minutes of inactivity.
For example, the following syntax defines that your license expires after 10 minutes of inactivity.
