Preparing to Create Your First Test

Applies to LoadComplete 4.97, last modified on May 20, 2019

Before you start recording your first test, consider the following prerequisites:

  • LoadComplete must be added to the list of trusted applications of your firewall and antivirus (see Configuring Your System).

  • If you use a web browser other than Internet Explorer, Edge or Google Chrome, configure your browser to use the system proxy settings to connect to the network.

    To configure Firefox:

    1. In Firefox, click Open menu and then click Options.

    2. On the Options page, locate the Network proxy options. You can type proxy in the search box on the Options page to find the options faster.

    3. Click Settings.

    4. In the Connect Settings dialog, select Use system proxy settings.

    5. If you use Firefox 65 or later, clear the No proxy for list.

    6. Click OK to close the dialog and save the changes.

    To configure a third-party web browser:

    For information on how to configure your web browser to use the system proxy settings, see the web browser’s documentation.

  • If you use Firefox 49 or later, we recommend that you configure your Firefox browser to use a Windows certificate store:

    1. In Firefox, type about:config in the Address bar. This will open the Firefox preferences page.

    2. Locate the security.enterprise_roots.enabled property in the list and set it to true.

  • If your computer is connected to the network via a proxy server:

    1. Select Tools > Options from LoadComplete main menu.

    2. Select Network > Proxy from the tree in the Options dialog.

    3. Select Manual Proxy Configuration from the Mode drop-down list.

    4. Enter the address and port of your proxy server. If the proxy server requires authorization, enter your login and password.

    5. Click OK to save the changes and close the dialog.

  • (Optional) You can add a server, where your sample application resides, to the Record traffic to these hosts only list:

    1. In LoadComplete, select Tools > Options from the main menu. LoadComplete will open the Options dialog.

    2. Choose Recording > Filters from the tree in the left part of the dialog.

    3. On the Record traffic to these hosts only list, enter the name of the computer, where the sample application resides. If it resides on the same computer, where LoadComplete is installed, enter localhost or the network name of that computer.

    LoadComplete will ignore requests other applications on your computer may send to network during the test recording. This way, you will be able to avoid unnecessary traffic in your scenario.
