Project Management assets

The Project Management > Assets area lets admins manage the assets in LoadRunner Cloud projects. Currently, the assets include load generators and agents.

Load generator management

Admins can share load generator assets—on-premises load generators, with multiple projects. In addition, admins can delete on-premises load generators that are shared by several projects.

To manage your load generator assets, expand your user name, select Project management and click the Load Generators tab.

The following actions are available for managing load generators:

Action How to
Share

Share a load generator with multiple projects:

  1. In the left pane, select one or more projects.

    Tip: Use the Search box to find a specific project. Select Unassigned to only show the load generators that have not been assigned.

  2. From the grid, select a load generator to share.
  3. Click the Share button to open the Share load generator: <LG_name> dialog box.
  4. Select which projects will share the load generator and click Save.

Delete

Delete a load generator that has been shared with multiple projects:

  1. In the left pane, select one or more projects.
  2. From the grid, select a load generator to delete.
  3. Click Delete.
Search In the right pane, use the search box to find load generators in the grid.

Older versions of on-premises load generators

For best results, use an on-premises load generator of the same version as your current LoadRunner Cloud tenant.

Beginning with OPLG version 2021.04, unsupported on-premises load generators will be disconnected automatically.

LoadRunner Cloud supports up to two versions back. For details about supported versions, see On-premises load generators (OPLGs).

  • An old, but supported version, is indicated by an warning icon .

  • An old, and no longer supported version is indicated by an error icon .

For information about downloading and installing a newer version, see Update an on-premises load generator.

Agent management

Admins can share agent assets with multiple projects or delete agents shared by several projects.

To manage your shared agents, expand your user name, select Project management, and click the Agents tab.

The following actions are available for managing shareable agents:

Action How to
Share

Share an agent with multiple projects:

  1. In the left pane, select one or more projects. The grid shows all agents that were marked as shareable during registration. For details, see Install the LoadRunner Cloud Git agent.

  2. In the grid, select an agent to share.
  3. Click the Share button to open the Share agent <agent_name> dialog box.
  4. Toggle which projects will share the agent that you selected, and click Save.

Note:  

  • The Share Agent dialog box will list all projects. If the account that configured the Git agent does not have access to a certain project, it will be disabled.

  • A Git agent can be shared by a maximum of five projects. Therefore, it is best to avoid unnecessary sharing of Git agents (for example, in projects that do not require the Git agent).

  • If multiple users upload or synchronize scripts using the same shared agent simultaneously, the uploading or synchronizing time will increase.

Delete

Delete an agent that has been shared with multiple projects:

  1. In the left pane, select one or more projects.
  2. From the grid, select an agent to delete.
  3. Click Delete.
Search In the right pane, use the search box to find agents in the grid.
View the projects sharing an agent

Select an agent in the grid. The Project section in the lower part of the right pane, shows the projects that use the selected agent.
