During the replay, some of the request headers recorded in Fiddler are missing.
 
Following is my Request Header, but Cookie is automatically removed on replay.
 
Cookie: qan.pc.ticket=V1-289-Q3134673661422182ef1c3; qan.pc.authid=215215351
Content-Type: application/xml
Content-Length: 780
Host: c00000007894.mycompany.com
 
I understand that authentication will not remain the same for every request and that could be the reason for removal. But mine is restful and hence I can replay the request with same credentials.

Appreciate if you could help me resolve the issue, as I am in process of exploring the tool and providing feedback for my management.

By default, StresStimulus emulates browser with caching turned off. To preserve the recorded cookie, you need to enable cache control and then set New VU and VU restarting browsers to zero, as shown below.


 
This way StresStimulus will emulate repeated users that reuse the same cookie from the browser cache. 
 
To realistically emulate multiple user load, you can set a greater than zero percentages, relevant to your user base. it will more accurately simulate the real world, where even repeated users clear cash and reopen browsers from time to time.
