If you selected a browser as a recording source, the Test Wizard will display the Browser Recording Settings step. Enter initial URL and select a browser cache option.
If at least one test case already exists in the Test, the following dialog will give a choice to either replace the current test case, or add a new test case.
After that the floating Recorder bar will appear. StresStimulus is ready to capture client actions from the recording source. Click through the application scenario that you want to test. StresStimulus will record all user actions.
During recording, the number of captured sessions is displayed in the recorder title bar. The list of captured sessions will appear in the StresStimulus session grid (in the standalone version) or in the Fiddler grid (in the add-on version). If the captured sessions counter in the Recorder does not increment, check Proxy Settings in Standalone Version.
To skip the recording of some pages, click Pause in the Recorder . To continue recording, click Resume .
When recording is finished, click Stop in the Recorder or in StresStimulus. If you record in the browser, it will be closed. A new test case will be created. StresStimulus will filter out unrelated requests from other browsers or non-browser processes and will create a test case.
Note: Filtering unrelated requests is based on checking initiated processes. Filtering may not work when security software installed on the test machine masks the initiated processes (e.g. Kaspersky security software marks all requests as issued by AVP process). To restore filtering, disable such security software.
Note: StresStimulus supports system proxy automatically. Some companies use a proxy that requires custom configuration. In this case, the recorder may not capture traffic by default. StresStimulus will display an error message recommending you modify your proxy settings if this occurs.
