"One of the features that I like is Object Recognition. It worked very well, and it allowed me to create a dynamic expert based on my requirements."
"The automation is very fast and you don't need to be overly proficient in coding."
"It has been good so far for API testing on Mac. It is not that hard to learn and use. There is so much support out there, so if anyone wants to start using it, there is enough help."
"Our clients have requested by all types of testing, including mobile, desktop, and API testing and all of those are covered by Katalon. I find that very valuable, very complete."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward and easy enough to complete."
"The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality."
"The scalability of the product is good."
"The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds."
"Has improved our organization by allowing us to obtain fast, detailed information about the behavior of our products and to supply this to the customer, enabling us to work together without the need for special programming knowledge."
"On a scale of one to ten, I would give Micro Focus UFT One a 10 because it is a reliable product, it works, it's as good or better than similar solutions especially because you get technical support from real people. Additionally, upgrades are always provided on a consistent basis."
"For traditional automation, approximately half of our tests end up automated. Therefore, we are saving half the testing time by pushing it off to automation. That gives it an intrinsic benefit of more time for manual testers and business testers to work on possibly more important and interesting things. For some of our applications, they don't just have to do happy path testing anymore, they can go more in-depth and breadth into the process."
"It helps in identifying defects earlier. With manual testing, that 15-day timeline meant there were times when we would find defects on the 11th or 12th day of the cycle, but with automation we are able to run the complete suite within a day and we are able to find the failures. It helps us to provide early feedback."
"The production and the efficiency of making your test cases can be very high."
"Micro Focus UFT One gives us integration capabilities with both API and GUI components. I like the user interface. It doesn't require that much skill to use and has automatic settings, which is useful for users who don't know what to select. It also has dark and light themes."
"This product is easy to use, understand, and maintain."
"The initial setup is relatively easy."
"The price of the solution is a bit high. It's one of the reasons we decided not to continue using the product."
"There could potentially be more reporting within the solution. We need more issue reports, for example."
"It would be helpful to have an automatic save feature."
"There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved."
"It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code."
"It would be helpful if they can integrate a feature for performance testing."
"The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all."
"UFT has a recording feature. They could make the recording feature window bigger for whatever activities that I am recording. It would improve the user experience if they could create a separate floating panel (or have it automatically show on the side) once the recording starts."
"The AI feature needs improvement. For banking applications, we input formatted text from documents, but the AI feature is recognizing three fields as one field, e.g., for a phone number, it puts all 10 digits in the international code or country code. Then, the script fails."
"Technical support could be improved."
"We have had some issues with stability, where it crashes sometimes."
"There is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to friction-free continuous testing across the software life cycle, as a local installation is required to run UFT."
"The artificial intelligence functionality is applicable only on the web, and it should be expanded to cover non-web applications as well."
"We used to run it as a test suite. Micro Focus provides that in terms of a test management tool as ALM, but when we think of integrating with a distributed version control system, like Jenkins, there isn't much integration available. That means we need to make use of external solutions to make it work."
"Sometimes, the results' file size can be intense. I wish it was a little more compact."
