Log onto LoadRunner Enterprise

This section describes how to log onto LoadRunner Enterprise.

  1. Open your web browser and type the LoadRunner Enterprise server URL in the following format: http://<LoadRunner Enterprise server name>/loadtest

    The LoadRunner Enterprise Login window opens.


    • Contact your system administrator if you do not have the correct URL.

    • If LoadRunner Enterprise was configured for external authentication (SSO), you are redirected to the LoadRunner Enterprise Login window from which you need to select a domain and project (the user name and password are already filled in). For details, see SSO authentication.

    • If more than one LoadRunner Enterprise server is installed in your system together with a load balancer, access LoadRunner Enterprise by entering the load balancer's URL. Alternatively, you can also enter the server's defined internal URL.

  2. Enter the user name and password assigned to you by your site administrator.

    If you are logging in using your internal LoadRunner Enterprise password, you can reset the password by clicking Forgot or want to change password (not available when using LDAP or SSO authentication).

  3. Select Automatically log in to my last domain and project on this machine or click the Authenticate button.

    • If automatic login is selected: when you click the Authenticate button, LoadRunner Enterprise opens to the last project in which you were working.

    • If automatic login is not selected: after you click the Authenticate button, select the Domain and Project you want to open. Then, click Login.

    Note: The system administrator can control user access to LoadRunner Enterprise projects by defining user roles that can enter them, and by determining the types of tasks each user role performs according to permission levels. For details, see Assign project roles and permissions to users.

  4. Select the language for displaying the LoadRunner Enterprise user interface.

    The multilingual user interface, or MLU, provides support for multiple languages on a single instance of LoadRunner Enterprise without having to install language packs.

    Supported languages are English, French, Italian, Korean, German, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish. Date formats are mm/dd/yyyy for English, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese, and dd/mm/yyyy for French, German, Spanish, and Italian.

  5. Click the Login button. LoadRunner Enterprise opens.
