Mobile Labs Trust Licensing

The Mobile Labs Trust license is stored in deviceConnect. For UFT automation, the automation enabled flag determined if the flag is set, allowing UFT operations. To verify the license, click the About deviceConnect link on the deviceConnect footer. The about dialog will display the number of devices licensed and if automation is enabled.

How Mobile Labs Trust Works

When connecting to a device with Trust deviceViewer the application under test (AUT) is dynamically instrumented allowing the application to be automated. After launching UFT with Mobile Labs Trust add-in enabled, UFT will recognize the objects in the AUT. Once the add-in is loaded you can use UFT features such as Record, Object Spy, Object Repository, and descriptive programming. After the script is built, the test can be executed against the real mobile device.

Because of the instrumentation process, Trust will allow the user to recognize the objects natively and make a cross platform script.

Enable Mobile Labs Trust Add-in

Select the option on the UFT Add-in manager to enable Mobile Labs Trust for UFT. When enabled, it will then begin to recognize objects in the application using the Trust deviceViewer window

NOTE: Automation cannot be performed against the browser based deviceViewer.
