Access SRL control components using DNS records for approved IPs

A new option enables you to access LoadRunner Cloud control components using an SRL sub-domain dedicated to your tenant, instead of configuring specific approved IP addresses. This enables you to open your firewall or proxy to any control component address included in the sub-domain, eliminating the need to configure and maintain specific IP addresses.

For more details, see Dedicated IP addresses.
