Create Vuser script templates

This topic describe saving a Vuser script as a template for future scripts, and working with the script templates.

About user-defined templates

You can save a script with a specific configuration as a user-defined template. You can then use this template as a basis for creating future scripts.

User-defined templates support the following files and data:

  • Runtime settings

  • Parameters

  • Extra files

  • Actions

  • Snapshots

Generic settings, such as Recording options and General options, are not supported as they are not relevant to a specific script.

Template guidelines

  • If you configure a script for a specific protocol and then save the script as a template, further scripts based on that template will work only with that same protocol.

  • After you create a template, you cannot edit it directly in VuGen. To make any changes, open the template and save it again with another name or overwrite the existing template.

  • If you regenerate an original script from a template, you will lose all of your manual changes.
