VuGen's Recording Report 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.
- This feature is available for Web HTTP/HTML, SAP - Web, and DevWeb scripts only.
- DevWeb scripts: Design Studio, and some of the Recording Report functionality, are not supported for DevWeb scripts.
Enable/disable the Recording Report
By default, VuGen automatically generates and displays the Recording Report in the Script Editor pane at the end of a recording session. A link to the report is also added to the script tree:
You can change the default setting in Tools > Options > Scripting > Recording > Generate Recording report.
If you disable the option to Display the Recording report when recording is finished, VuGen automatically opens the correlation Design Studio instead.

Drilldowns and traffic filtering for script content
