Creating a Custom Virtual User type

To create a custom virtual user (VU) type, select the Workspace tree, right-click one of the existing VUs and select New VU Type. Then specify a name and description for your new virtual user.

Note that if you create a VU type based on an existing Java or .NET type, then you will also be prompted for a package/namespace.

Click OK, and the new VU type will be added to the tree view.
