A transaction is a set of sequential requests representing a meaningful step in a test scenario. It is used to track performance characteristics of a specific business transaction that includes several user actions. Transactions add another level of performance tracking in addition to requests and pages.
You can define transactions while recording a test case or after the test case is created.
To create the first transaction, enter its name in the Test Wizard when prompted.
To create a transaction during the recording, enter the transaction name in the textbox on the recorder and complete navigating through transaction steps.
Entering a new transaction name will designate the end of the current transaction and the beginning of the subsequent transaction.
To complete the current transaction without creating a new transaction, clear the transaction name from the box on the recorder.
