Renaming Projects and Project Items

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

You can rename test projects, tests and scenarios displayed in the Project Explorer. For example, you may want to give them descriptive names that reflect their purpose better.

For information about renaming test results, see Renaming Log Items.

To rename a test project, test or scenario
  • In the Project Explorer, do any of the following:

    • Right-click the item you want to rename and select Rename from the context menu.

    • Click the item twice (do not confuse this with a double click).

    • Select the item and press F2.

  • Enter a new name for the item and press Enter.

You can also rename projects, tests and scenarios by saving them under a different name. To do this:

  • Select the desired item in the Project Explorer.

  • Select Save Current As from the item’s context menu.

    -- or --

    Select File | Save As | Save Project As or File | Save As | Save Current As from the main menu of LoadComplete.

  • Specify a new name for the item and click Save.

Note that in this case, the original project or item file remains on the disk. Use Windows Explorer or some other file manager to delete that file.

  • When you rename a project, test or scenario, LoadComplete automatically renames the corresponding file on the disk.

  • When you rename a scenario, LoadComplete will update the scenario name in Call Scenario operations that call that scenario automatically.

    Important: Remember to update the scenario name in load tests that use the renamed scenario. LoadComplete does not track scenario renaming in tests.

  • The Save Project As menu command saves the project under a new name to some folder other than the current project folder, and copies all the project item files and subfolders to this folder.

  • LoadComplete stores data of projects, scenarios and tests in files under the same name, so the naming rules for projects and items correspond to file naming rules in Windows. Specifically, a name:

    • Must start with a character other than a space or a dot,

    • Must not include the following reserved characters:

      < > : " / \ | ? *

    If you specify a name that contains illegal characters, LoadComplete will offer you to correct the name by replacing the illegal characters with underscores.
