Recording Summary Report
When you record your application, unwanted information is often included in the script, such as Google statistics, advertisements, and third party information.
VuGen's Recording Summary report enables you to make decisions about which parts of the recording to include in your generated script, and which to filter out.
The Recording Summary provides general information about your recording session, as well as detailed information about hosts, headers, and content types. The report also enables you to manage traffic filtering.
Note: This feature is available for Web HTTP/HTML scripts only.
To configure VuGen to automatically generate a Recording Summary report at the end of a recording session:
- In VuGen, select Tools > Options.
- On the Scripting tab, under Recording, select Generate Recording Summary report.
- To open the report after it is generated, select Display the Recording Summary report when recording is finished.
Access the Recording Summary report
Assuming Generate Recording Summary report is enabled (see Enable the Recording Summary report above), when you finish recording your script the Recording Summary report appears in the script tree under the Recording Report.
If your options are set to display the report when recording is finished, the report opens in the Script Editor pane.
