Async Tab [Design Studio]

The Async tab of the Design Studio lists all the occurrences of asynchronous communication that VuGen detected in the Vuser script.

To access
  • Select Design > Design Studio, and then click the Async tab.
  • Click the Design Studio button on the VuGen toolbar, and then click the Async tab.
Important information
  • The Design Studio button is enabled only when you display a recorded Vuser script in the Solution Explorer.
  • The Async tab enables you to only view the asynchronous communication that is included in the Vuser script - you cannot edit any of the asynchronous details from the Async tab. Changes to the asynchronous details must be made in the Vuser script.

User interface elements are described below:

UI Element Description
Type

Indicates the origin of the asynchronous code in the Vuser script:

Record. The asynchronous code was added by VuGen during an Async scan that was performed after recording or regenerating the Vuser script.

Rule. The asynchronous code was added by VuGen due to a specific rule in the Async rules file.

Manual. The asynchronous code was manually added by a user.

Action The section of the Vuser script in which the asynchronous behavior is located.
Occurrences
  • For push-type conversations, Occurrences is always 1.
  • For poll and long-poll conversations, Occurrences indicates the number of steps or extra resource attributes that were removed [commented-out] by VuGen during the Async scan of the Vuser script.
Status Always has the value Applied.
Async Type The type of the asynchronous behavior that was detected: Push, Poll, or Long-Poll.
URL The URL in the web_reg_async_attributes step that starts the asynchronous conversation.
Filter Select which asynchronous conversations to display in the conversation list.
Details Expands the dialog box to show details about the selected asynchronous conversation.
Name Always has the value web_reg_async_attributes.
Line The line in the Vuser script that contains the web_reg_async_attributes step.
Action Name The section of the Vuser script in which the asynchronous behavior is located.
Description The comment in the Vuser script that precedes the web_reg_async_attributes step.
Occurrences in Snapshot
  • For push-type conversations, displays the response body.
  • For poll and long-poll conversations, displays HTTP attributes associated with the asynchronous conversation.
Options Opens the Asynchronous Request Thresholds dialog box.
