Is there a way to parametrize the data to choose random times and dates?

We ran into the issue where the script would only create about 10 orders since it was running out of time for that chosen date and time frame.

Yes, this can be done.
I assume that you need to parameterize date/time recorded in request(s).

Generally, parameterization includes 2 steps:
A. Creating a variable
B. Replacing the recorded request value with a variable.

Here are the details:
A. To create random times and dates you can use a Data Generator variable described http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc49/Data-Generators
  • Select the data generators node on the Test Workflow Tree.
  • Click Create New Data Generator to bring up the generator dialog.
  • Select DateTime type on the left
  • Select Min and Max values.
  • Enter a format string that you want the generator DateTime to look like. For a list of formats see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/base-types/custom-date-and-time-format-strings










  • B. To create a parameter see http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc49/Creating+a+Parameter
