after we were able to add the load agents to our controller, they disappeared when we loaded a test case. Is there a setting we should check to ensure that the load agents remain connected to the controller? We have 40 test cases and we’re wanting to avoid having to manually add the load agents for every test case.

Load agents are part of the test and not the machine. Every test has its list of load agents. However, all test cases within a test can use the same agents.

It looks like in your situation the test cases are stored in the separate tests. In this approach, you would need to add agents to every test manually. Below is a technique that can simplify this process.

Alternatively, if you put all 40 test cases into 1 test, then you will only need to add agents once.

The simplified method of Copying agents from one test to another:

The agent data is stored inside a .ssconfig file in XML format. Here are the steps:

  • Add load agents to one test.




  • Open script editor
  • Navigate to the bottom and copy the entire <Agents> section to the clipboard (or to the notepad)
  • Close script editor
  • Save the test.
  • Open a second test that you wish to copy the agent information to
  • Open script editor
  • Find the <Agents> and overwrite the entire section with data from the clipboard (or notepad)
  • Click the Save & Exit button to reload the test.
