Projects

The Project Management's Projects tab lets admin users create and configure projects within your tenant.

Create and configure projects

The Projects tab allows admin users to designate a LoadRunner Cloud project for specific work groups, products, or projects within your group.

Load generators can be shared by multiple projects. However, assets such as scripts, monitors, and load tests, cannot be shared between projects.

Admin users create and configure projects in the Project management > Projects tab.

Note: If you do not see the Projects tab in the Project Management area, open a support ticket requesting to enable it.

To configure cloud load generator limits for a project:

  2. In the Active column, toggle the switch to ON for the protocols that you want users to be able to customize Vuser capacity in their tests. If you do not activate the protocol, it will use the tenant’s default limits.

    Note: Only those protocols included in your bundle will be available.
