About LoadRunner Enterprise CI plugins

The LoadRunner Enterprise plugins for continuous integration provide a mechanism for executing performance tests as part of a build script.

These plugins allow you to trigger a LoadRunner Enterprise test as a build step and present the results in the CI server's user interface.

Secure integration using SSO or LDAP authentication

For LoadRunner Enterprise's CI plugin tools to integrate securely with LoadRunner Enterprise, you must configure the following:

  • SSO or LDAP authentication must be enabled on the LoadRunner Enterprise server. For details, see SSO authentication and LDAP authentication.

  • LoadRunner Enterprise must have an API access key which it uses during authentication. The LoadRunner Enterprise site administrator configures a unique pair of ClientId and ClientSecret keys for a specific user, which enables that user to login using a REST API. For details, see Set up API access.
