How do you set an idle timeout on UFT from the server side (AutoPass)?
Question ID: 108756

Our workers forget to close UFT. Is it possible to set an idle timeout from the license server to release an idle UFT client’s concurrent license token back to the license server?

For UFT v11.5x/12.0x, it's not possible. See here:

For UFT v14.03 and AutoPass License Server (APLS) 9.3.2 and above:

**1)** Navigate to the license server data configuration folder and edit the UFT configuration file:


*Default location and file name for APLS 9.3.x:*

> %ProgramData%HPHP AutoPass License ServerAutoPassLicenseServerdataconfHPE UFT.xml

Note: be careful to only modify **HPE UFT.xml**


*Default location and file name for APLS 10.7 (new install only):*

> %ProgramData%autopassaplslicenseserverdataconfUFT.xml


**2)** Add the following key before the </properties> tag closes in the UFT configuration file:

<entry key="autorelease.interval">15</entry>

Change the value as needed (this example is for a 15 minute timeout on UFT after an idle time of no keyboard or mouse interaction.

Full file example:

10027_1.0_UFT_14.50 properties
<entry key="autorelease.interval">15</entry>

**3)** Restart the AutoPass license server Windows Service for your changes to take effect.

This works. Setting the autorelease.interval key in my UFT.xml data config file on our AutoPass license server makes UFT clients timeout after an idle period, releasing the concurrent license token back to the license server.
