About the Panel

To determine whether a request was simulated successfully, LoadComplete compares the response code received from the server during the test run against the expected response code the scenario specifies. If the response codes differ, LoadComplete posts a warning to the test log.

In the Expected Codes panel of the operation editor, you can configure how LoadComplete will treat this or that response code: Warning, Error or OK (success). For example, you can command LoadComplete to treat the response code 307 for the request as an error (307 - Temporary Redirect).

Note: If a request is redirected unexpectedly during simulation (though it was not redirected during the recording), LoadComplete will validate the code of the successive server response rather than the actual 3xx Redirection response. To learn more, see Handling Unexpected Redirects.
If a request is declined unexpectedly during simulation due to the absence of credentials (though it was accepted during the recording), and a 401 Unauthorized response is received, LoadComplete will attempt to send an authentication request automatically. If the authorization passes, LoadComplete will validate the code of the successive server response rather than the initial 401 Unauthorized response. To learn more, see Automatic Authentication.

LoadComplete uses the panel for these operations:

  • Scenario (a top-level node in a scenario)
  • Request (HTTP requests)
  • WebSocket Connection (a request that establishes a WebSocket connection is a regular HTTP request that includes WebSocket-specific data.)
