Hi,

I am running a stress test on an internal web app that uses windows authentication. My organisation doesn't want to create a large number of test users due to security reasons and time constraints.

i have found that I can create one test user and use their user name and password multiple times for authentication ie. all my simulated users will be logging on using the same credentials.

Will using this method still create a "fair" test or will this produce inaccurate results?

Thanks.

Hi,

All results should be correct, there should be no problems using the same login\passwords data for all users.
