    Note: The Eggplant Functional: Options tab in the Group Specification dialog box only appears if the group you're editing is running a script or a workflow which uses an Eggplant Functional VU type.

As the title of the checkbox itself reads, selecting the Use Eggplant Cloud to host your Eggplant Functional SUTs checkbox ensures that additional VMs are started for each virtual user to be used as a SUT. Typically, during a test, virtual users will run Eggplant Functional in drive mode, and connect to the new SUT VM, where Eggplant Functional can launch the browser and perform testing.

Note: Tests with virtual users running on Eggplant Cloud SUTs cannot use the Add extra virtual users option in Test Controller, as described in Add Virtual Users During Test Runs.

New feature: The Eggplant Cloud option is available in Eggplant Performance 9.0 and later.

For each group of Eggplant Functional virtual users (VUs), you can specify a main suite. When an Eggplant Functional VU starts up, it automatically loads the main suite. The scripts and images in this suite will then be available for use in the test run. If a test includes Eggplant Functional VUs, and the suite used in the scripts includes a helper suite, then that helper suite is transferred to the required injectors before the test begins.

When detailed logging is enabled, Eggplant Functional records screenshots of every action performed. You can use the Eggplant Functional Viewer to view these screenshots in real time or browse a history of screenshots. Only a certain proportion of VUs will save screenshots, because the amount of data accumulated can become very large. It is recommended to keep the proportion low.

Note: You can collect screenshots for all VUs by selecting the Turn on Detailed Logging for one VU in every X option. For eg., if x is 100, then it means that only 1% of VUs produce detailed logs for every 100, and similarly if the X value is 1, then 100% of the VUs produce detailed logs.

The logging level corresponds to the details reported by Eggplant Functional.

The Remote Work Interval is the time between individual commands executed by Eggplant Functional. This value can be changed to speed up or slow down a group of VUs.
