This topic describes common tasks you can accomplish in the Load Test editor:

Adding Virtual Users to Load Test

To add a new virtual user (or several virtual users) to a load test:

  • If the load test does not have a group of virtual users with the needed properties:

    • Click New Item on the editor’s toolbar. LoadComplete will add a new row for one virtual user.

    • To create more users, set the needed number in the User Count column.

    • Set the needed properties for the created virtual user(s).

To add a copy of existing virtual users to a load test:

  • Select the needed group of virtual users in the load test.

  • Click Copy on the editor’s toolbar.

  • Click Paste on the editor’s toolbar.

Deleting Virtual Users

To delete a user (or several users):

  • In the Virtual Users table, select the row that holds the needed user and reduce the number of virtual users in the User Count column.

To delete a group of virtual users from the test:

  • Right-click the row and choose Delete from the context menu.

Setting Virtual User Properties

You set virtual users’ properties in the columns of the Load Test editor:

  • Click the needed column of the virtual user to edit. This will activate the in-place editor.
