Configure agents

This task describes how to configure Service Virtualization agents. There are several pre-configured agent instances with default configurations. You can use these instances, modify them, or define new instances.


To configure an agent:

  1. From the main menu, select Tools > Options and click the Agents page.
  2. In the left pane, expand the server to display the available agents and configurations.
  3. Select the agent you want to configure, and fill in the properties.
  4. To add another configuration of an agent, choose one of the following:

    • Click Add. A new configuration is added and you can modify its settings.
    • Click Import. Select an agent configuration file that was exported from a Service Virtualization Server (embedded or standalone) and saved on the file system.

      If the configuration file you are importing contains multiple configurations, you can select which configurations you want to import.

      If you choose to import an agent configuration that is identical to a configuration that already exists on your server, you can choose to overwrite your existing configuration, or create a new, additional configuration.

You can also delete, duplicate, and export agent configurations. For user interface details, see Agent user interfaces.

Note: The agents are supported on both Windows and Linux, unless otherwise indicated on the agent configuration help page.
