Working with Remote Agent in UFT

Let us comprehend the role and settings of a “Remote Agent” in UFT/QTP.

It is an inbuilt tool inside HPUFT, which comes into picture when we run a test from ALM.

UFT Remote Agent opens on the UFT computer where the test runs.

The UFT Remote Agent determines how UFT behaves when a test is run by a remote application such as ALM.

Automatic: – It will be automatically triggered on the machine (UFT Machine) where we are running our tests from ALM/QC.

Manual: –
1. Look for the Unified Functional Testing (installation) folder ->bin->AQTRmtAgent.exe. Launch this .exe file.


2.Invoke the Remote Agent by following the path, Start > All Programs > HP Software > HP Unified Functional Testing > Tools > Remote Agent
