Creating Vuser Scripts - Overview

Creating a Vuser script includes the steps shown below. This topic provides an overview of the first step, creating a Vuser script.


The first step in developing a Vuser script is to create a blank script. For details on how to create a blank Vuser script, see Create and Open Vuser Scripts. The contents and structure of the blank Vuser script vary slightly based on the protocol of the script. Therefore, before you create a blank Vuser script, you must know the protocol to use for the script. After you create a blank Vuser script, you are ready to perform the next step in the script creation workflow - recording user actions into the script. For details, see Recording.

When you create a Vuser script, VuGen creates a series of configuration files, data files, and source code files that comprise the Vuser script. These files contain Vuser runtime and setup information. For details on the files that comprise a Vuser script, see Script Directory Files.

VuGen enables you to:

  • Create or open a script from a template. For task details, see Create and Open Vuser Script Templates.
  • Open or work with a .zip script. You can unzip or work with a script in .zip format. For task details, see How to Work with .zip Files.
  • Work withApplication Lifecycle Management:

    • Open a script stored in Application Lifecycle Management.
    • Use Application Lifecycle Management to store and retrieve Vuser scripts, scenarios, and analysis results. You can store scripts in an ALM project and organize the scripts into unique groups.

    For more information, see Working with Application Lifecycle Management.
