Editing Scenario Options

To perform a test, you should create a test scenario. WAPT Pro test scenario defines parameters of test run: the number of virtual users, test duration, date and time when the test will be started, user simulation options and the list of included user profiles. Scenario also contains options for saving log files and test results.

To create a new test scenario, click the New button on the program toolbar. New Scenario Wizard will be initiated. This wizard will help you create a new test scenario depending on your test goals. It also includes a short guide on test results.

You can modify the properties of created test scenario. Select the necessary item in the Scenario folder of the tree view:

Test Volume - the number of virtual users and test duration
Report Options - general options for reports and graphs
Log Settings - options for log files
Extended Results - options for CSV data output
Pass/Fail Criteria - here you can specify the criteria of successful test execution

Saving a Test Scenario

You can save a newly created test scenario and open it later to continue testing your site. Scenario file includes information on all user profiles of the current scenario, test volume options, user simulation options and settings for saving log files and test results.
