UTA Components and License Restrictions

Anthony Shorten
Principal Product Manager

The Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator is fast becoming a part of a lot of cloud and on-premise implementations as partners and customer recognize the value of pre-built assets in automated testing to reduce costs and risk. This growth necessitates a clarification in respect to licensing of the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator to ensure compliance with the license.

  • Oracle Utilities product exclusive. The focus of the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator is to provide an optimized solution for optimizing testing of Oracle Utilities products. The Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator is licensed for exclusive use with the Oracle Utilities products it is certified against. it will not work with product not certified as their is no content or capability inbuilt into the solution for product outside that realm.
  • Named User Plus License. The Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator uses the Named User Plus license metric. Refer to the License Definitions and Rules for a definition of the restrictions of that license. The license cannot be shared across physical users. The license gives each licensed user access to any relevant content available for any number of any supported non-production copies of certified Oracle Utilities products (including multiple certified products and multiple certified versions).
  • Non-Production Use. The Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator is licensed for use against non-Production copies of the certified products. It cannot be used against a Production environment.
  • All components of the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator are covered by the license. The Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator is provided in a number of components including the browser based Oracle Utilities Testing Workbench (including the execution engine), Oracle Utilities Testing Repository (storing assets and results of tests), Oracle Utilities Test Asset libraries provided by Oracle,  Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator Eclipse Plug In and the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator Testing API implemented on the target copy of the Oracle Utilities product you are testing. These are subject to conditions of the license. For example, you cannot use the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator Testing API without the use of the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator. Therefore you cannot install the Testing API on a Production environment or even use the API in any respect other than with Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator (and selected other Oracle testing products).

Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator continues to be the cost effective way of reducing testing costs associated with Oracle Utilities products on-premise and on the Oracle Cloud.
