Set up environment
This section describes how to configure TruClient's General settings specific to Digital Lab.
Prepare your environment
To prepare your Digital Lab environment for running a test in TruClient or LoadRunner products:
- Make sure you have access to a machine with Digital Lab.
- Ensure that your version of TruClient supports your Digital Lab version. For details, see Digital Lab Support matrix.
Ensure that cookies are enabled on your Internet browser.
Open the General Settings
The TruClient General Settings dialog box lets you set the Digital Lab server preferences globally, so that you do not need to configure them separately for each test.
To open the TruClient General Settings dialog box:
- In VuGen, select File > New Script and Solution.
- In the Create a New Script dialog box, under the Single Protocol or Mobile category, select TruClient – Native Mobile and click Create. The new script opens.
- Select Tools > TruClient General Settings. Wait several seconds. If you cannot see the Settings dialog box, click the Show TruClient General Settings button in the notification window to bring it into focus.
Click the Digital Lab Settings tab.
TruClient General Settings for Digital Lab
All settings you define in the TruClient General Settings dialog box (in the Digital Lab tab) are applied globally to all TruClient - Native Mobile scripts. You only need to configure these settings once. All subsequently created scripts automatically inherit these settings, even after you close VuGen or TruClient. However, server exceptions must be configured for each script. For details, see Add server exceptions.
In VuGen, if you save your script while in TruClient's interactive mode, the settings from the General Setting dialog box overwrite the runtime settings values in the Solution Explorer.
The Digital Lab login password and access key values are encrypted and displayed as asterisks so that their actual values cannot be seen.

The data metrics to collect during replay: CPU on device, Free memory on device, and Consumed memory on device. You can also enable Device logs, for generating logs for each of the devices under test. The device log data is generated by Logcat for Android and Syslog for iOS.

Initial Replay: Whether to restart or install your applications before the first replay.
Iteration. What to do with your applications before and after each iteration: Restart, Install, or Delete.
Reinstalling apps ensures their compatibility with the current version of Digital Lab. This option may not be available if you are using Amazon as a source lab.
For example, if your test runs multiple iterations, and you only want to install the apps for the first iteration, but not on subsequent iterations, configure the settings as follows:

Lets you enable network virtualization, and select a predefined or user-defined network profile.
Beginning with Digital Lab version 2.20, TruClient integration uses the NV 9.12 predefined network profiles. If your script uses profiles from previous versions, they may fail.
For details, see the Network Virtualization help.
Allows you to customize transactions names by adding a suffix to help you identify them after a test run. For details, see Insert transactions.
The suffix can be one or more of the following:

Run on start. Runs the entire configuration flow in the TruClient Digital Lab tab when the TruClient browser opens. When disabled (default), TruClient automatically connects with the Digital Lab server, but does not execute any of the configuration steps.
If you disable this option, you can execute the flow in the following ways:
