Some users are emulated, but one user is not

To troubleshoot why sqa3 wasn’t not used, check the following: how many virtual users are you running the test with? In order to use all authentication sqa’s you need at least 3 VUs and each VU will consume the next available row in the Authentication grid. If you use more VUs than rows in the authentication grid, then the credentials are re-used in round-robin order (http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc46/_Authentication). If you use Host-specific credentials, as shown below then the process is a bit more involved and I can explain if you need.





Also, make sure that you enter the correct credentials for sqa3 and that this user has sufficient permissions to complete the actions that you recorded.

We are testing our product on Dynamics CRM 2016 on premise with AD authentication using 3 sets of credentials.

In the results it appears that only users sqa1 and sqa2 were used to login and run the scenario. Sqa3 was never used.

Topic: Serial does not activate
It looks like your firewall blocks access to our licensing server. In this situation, you can create and email an off-line activation request. Once we receive it, we will email you back an off-line activation license.
Here are the steps:

1. In the licensing window click the Advanced tab
2. Click the Request Offline Activation button
3. In the appeared dialog, check the box “I agree to bind StresStimulus instance to this machine”, click Save Request File and save the license request file which is a text file containing your machine's hardware fingerprints.




4. Email this file to me. I will generate and email you back your off-line activation license.

What proxy to use for mobile device

Recording a test case from a mobile device is described here http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc47/Recording+from+Mobile+Devices

You need to configure a proxy on a mobile device as described there. The device should use WiFi. The mobile device and StresStimulus machine must connected to the same router.

Also, to record secure applications, you need to enable SSL on the mobile device as described here http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc47/HTTPS+on+mobile+devices

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I have a question regarding connection of StresStimulus with mobile devices. Since configuring the proxy, the application to test indicates that the device has no internet connection, but this happens when the proxy is configured.
Could you confirm what exactly is the proxy to user and the port?

Topic: VU ramp-up pattern
Currently StresStimulus supports step load pattern with constant VU increments as described here http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc47/Load-Pattern
For example, you can start with 50 VUs, and then every 30 minutes ramp-up 50 more VUs. As a result, you will get:

1. START with 50VU
2. After 30 min, Increase VU to 100
3. After 30 min, Increase VU to 150
4. After 30 min Increase VU to 200
5. After 30 min Increase VU to 250
6. After 30 min Increase VU to 300
7. After 30 min Increase VU to 350
8. After 30 min Increase VU to 400
9. After 30 min Increase VU to 450
10. After 30 min Increase VU to 500
11. STOP

Would the above load pattern work for you?

Thanks for the quick response, and yes that will be great if we can set up a support session, I think my issue is probably that it's extracting in the wrong place but I can't figure out where I need to change it

How do I setup this test case :

  • Target 500 VU
  • START with 30VU
  • After 30 min, Increase VU to 100
  • After 30 min Increase VU to 200
  • After 30 min Increase VU to 250
  • After 30 min Increase VU to 300
  • After 30 min Increase VU to 350
  • After 30 min Increase VU to 400
  • After 30 min Increase VU to 450
  • After 30 min Increase VU to 500
  • STOP

  • Is this possible?

    There will not be a single solution to the issue described that works for all test scenarios. Based on your description I can imagine several possible test scenarios, Here’s one example:

    1. Login.
    2. Select an account from the grid (or search by account number).
    3. This opens the form for this account.
    4. In the cases subgrid, create a new case for this account.


    In this scenario, you need to create an extractor for the recorded account number. Then you need to replace this account in all subsequent requests with the extractor.


    Typical errors for this situation could be:

    • The account number is extracted from a wrong place
    • Not all occurrences of the account number in the requests are replaced with the parameter. Make sure you use bulk replace when creating a parameter as described here and here


    Unfortunately, issues that require adjusting test case script are difficult to resolve on a public forum. If you would like, I can privately email you a link for scheduling a support session where our staff will complete your test configuration.

    We have a customized Dynamics CRM 365 form for accounts that contains a Cases Subgrid. I'm trying to test case creation from the subgrid and it seems I can't get the correct parameter setup for account look up because all the Cases end up being created in the same account even when I try to use replace the Account Number(which is the lookup field) with VU _Iter Bound values from the dataset

    How to suppress encoding in a parameter

    Yes this can be done. To avoid encoding the braces you need to create the parameter in the free format editor (instead of the parameterization editor). Here are the steps:

    • In the test case tree right-click on session 211 and select Create Parameter
    • Select the Url and Query tab
    • Click the switch to free format editor button. Click ok on the StresStimulus alert.






    • In the free format editor create the same parameter the same way as you created the existing parameters.


    Your existing parameters will be converted to a new parameter that will not encode braces

    In order to activate your license on a machine that is behind a proxy that needs authentication, in the main menu Help > License > Advanced tab and in the Proxy Credentials section, provide your proxy credentials. For more information see http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc47/Activating+License

    Recording scenario from a fat client

    Most of our Dynamics apps are thin client apps (web) but we do have a few that are thick client. Can I use StresStimulus for those?

    If they must be web apps, can I emulate the thick client apps via a browser and use xy coordinates to perform?

    You can load test thick clients with StresStimulus if they use HTTP(s) protocol. To record thick client test cases open the recorder and select the “non-browser” option. http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc47/Recording+Test+Case

    Check couple of things:
    • Make sure that StresStimulus is running on Windows machine
    • Make sure that you configured the proxy with correct port (49386 ) and IP address of your Windows machine with StresStimulus. After that you should be able to browse Internet from your iPhone
    • after that you should be able to download certificate by opening a browser on iPhone and navigate to http://{StresStimulus_IP}:49386/root.cer
    If this does not work, try using StresStimulus fiddler version.
    After that you should be able to record your iPhone traffic in StresStimulus fiddler add-on.
