Our workers forget to close UFT. Is it possible to set an idle timeout on UFT to release a concurrent license back to the license server?

For UFT v11.5x/12.0x, it's not possible. See here: https://eyeontesting.com/questions/17408/can-you-set-an-idle-timeout-on-uft-120x-to-release.html

For UFT v12.5x/v14.x and above:

Navigate to the following LicenseSettings.xml file:

> %ProgramData%Hewlett-PackardUFTLicenseLicenseSettings.xml

Edit the file and change the **LicenseAutoReleaseInterval** element's value from the default of 0 (disabled) to your desired idle timeout in minutes + 1 (e.g., set to 15 for a 16 minute idle timeout).

Example:




5814
HTTPS

5814
HTTPS
Seat
None
15

This works. My UFT client will now disconnect from the license server and release the concurrent license upon idle timeout!
