Automation with UFT

This feature is available only in the Premium version of Squash AUTOM.


Squash AUTOM/Squash DEVOPS current version only supports "GUI Testing". "API Testing" and "BPT Testing" are not available yet.

Test configuration

The result publication in Squash TM requires UFT be configured to generate a "Run Result Viewer Report":
(This configuration is tied to the test, so it has to be committed in the Git repository.)

UFT report format

Test reference in Squash TM

In order to bind a Squash TM test case to a UFT automated test, the content of the Automated test reference field of the Automation block of a test case must have the following format:



  • [repository]: Name of the Git repository.

  • [folder]: The path to the test folder to execute.

Nature of the exploitable Squash TM parameters

Here is a table showing the exploitable parameters (these parameters are transmitted as test parameters, see below, Squash TM does not generate global parameters):

Nature Key
Name of the dataset DSNAME
Dataset parameter DS_[name]
Test case reference TC_REFERENCE
Test case internal UUID TC_UUID
Test case custom field TC_CUF_[code]
Iteration custom field IT_CUF_[code]
Campaign custom field CPG_CUF_[code]
Test suite custom field TS_CUF_[code]


  • [code]: Value of the "Code" of a custom field
  • [name]: Parameter name as filled in Squash TM

As indicated, Squash TM adds a prefix to the code of the transmitted custom field. Make sure to take it into account.

Refer to the Squash TM documentation for more information about custom fields.

Parameters usage

It is possible, when running UFT tests, to exploit parameters within it. A parameter can be a test parameter or a global parameter. Squash TM transmits only test parameters. Test parameters and global parameters can be used in Squash DEVOPS with the uft/params action.

Each parameter is available in UFT as a test parameter (see the UFT documentation).

If the same name is used for a global parameter and a test parameter, the latter is taken into account in UFT.


Below is an example of a UFT solution and the corresponding Squash TM test case automation:

Supported versions

Squash AUTOM and Squash DEVOPS have been validated with UFT 15.0.2. Any recent version should work properly.
