Depending upon the virtual user type and particular circumstances of the system under test, Virtual User Scripts can be created in a number of ways:
- Recording user actions to generate a script
- Generating a script based upon a set of rules and properties
- Hand-coding a script
See the section Working with Virtual User Scripts for more information.
Virtual User Scripts can be executed by a virtual user singly or by placing them within a Workflow as part of a sequence of scripts. A Test is then created with one or more Virtual User Groups. Each Virtual User Group is constructed to either run a script or Workflow and their runtime settings are configured. Next, Data Sources are assigned to the test and/or Virtual User Groups before finally running the test.
