The DéjàClick Test on Demand feature allows AlertSite customers to run scripts on a remote server immediately, right from your desktop. This gives you instant results for checking a website’s transaction performance. It also allows you to ensure your script is fully functional before deploying it to your AlertSite account or distributing it to your team.

DéjàClick Test on Demand is similar to AlertSite's test on demand, except you can run it for any DéjàClick script without creating an AlertSite monitor first.

Requirements

To run a test on demand, you must have an AlertSite account. You can sign up here.
