Backward compatibility for upgrades

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

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:
