Unsupported features

Most of the features defined in previous versions are displayed and work in the same way in LoadRunner Enterprise 2020 SP2 and SP3.

The features listed below are not available or fully implemented:

Feature Comments
ALM integration

As a result of decoupling LoadRunner Enterprise 2020 from ALM, there is no official integration between LoadRunner Enterprise and ALM. This means that the Analysis and UFT integrations are not supported with LRE Connectivity.

Cloud hosts
  • Dynamically provisioning load generators on the cloud using Microsoft Azure cloud accounts is supported from LoadRunner Enterprise 2020 SP3.

  • Credits reports and calculations have been deprecated.

Database

LoadRunner Enterprise can only work with a single database server. As a result, all project schemas must be located on the same database server.

Define IP addresses

Defining IP addresses to use as a target for performance testing is currently not supported.

Diagnostics

Diagnostics integration is currently unavailable and was removed from the user interface.

Elastic dockerized hosts
  • Elastic dockerized Controller hosts are currently not supported.

  • Monitoring orchestrator metrics using the Prometheus monitor (for Swarm) and the Heapster Server (for Kubernetes) are currently not supported.

  • When migrating a project that contains tests using dockerized hosts, only the Orchestration configurations are migrated; the path to your updated Docker images must be redefined. For details and suggested resolution, see Notes and limitations.

File repository
  • The file repository for each project is located under the same root folder with a fixed structure.

  • A distributed file repository is not supported.

For details, see Manage the project repository.

PAL

PAL is currently unavailable and was removed from the navigation toolbar.

Note: PAL data is still migrated from earlier versions to LoadRunner Enterprise as part of the migration process (support is planned for this feature in an upcoming version).

Projects
  • Deleting projects from the LoadRunner Enterprise Administration user interface is not supported in LoadRunner Enterprise 2020 SP3 or later. If you need to delete a project, follow the steps for removing a project (Remove a project) and then delete the project's schema from the database and the project’s repository folder.

  • Project history data is not currently supported.

    Note: All relevant historical audit data is in the original project's schema.

Reports
  • All previous cloud reports were removed except for the Cloud Operations report.

  • Cloud and Docker usage data is now centralized under the Elastic Cloud Utilization and Elastic Docker Utilization reports.

For details, see Reports.

Service Virtualization The integration with Service Virtualization is currently not supported.
SSO authentication

When LoadRunner Enterprise is configured with SSO authentication, the following are not supported:

  • REST APIs.

  • VuGen—LoadRunner Enterprise integration.

  • Entity Unlocker.

Template projects The ALM template projects feature is not supported.
User-defined fields (UDF)

UDFs are currently not supported.

Note:

  • UDF data is still migrated from earlier versions to LoadRunner Enterprise as part of the migration process (support is planned for this feature in an upcoming version).

  • The default UDFs appearing in the schema during the creation of ALM Lab or projects are migrated. If additional columns were added to a project, only the columns up to the number listed in parenthesis below are migrated:

    • For Projects: Test (24), Test instance (24), Runs (12), Test Set (6)

    • For Lab: Project Properties (4), Host (5)

UFT integration

The integration with UFT is supported from LoadRunner Enterprise 2020 SP3.

Version control

LoadRunner Enterprise does not currently support version control. As a result, only the latest checked in tests and scripts from ALM are migrated to LoadRunner Enterprise.
