transaction_name The name of the transaction.

The lr_start_transaction function marks the beginning of a transaction. To indicate a transaction to be analyzed, use the lr_start_transaction and lr_end_transaction functions. These functions are inserted immediately before and after the transaction.

Transactions can be nested, but each lr_start_transaction statement must be associated with an lr_end_transaction statement or it will be interpreted as an illegal command.

Note: For information on allowed characters and maximum length for transaction names, see Transaction guidelines in the Virtual User Generator Help Center (select the relevant version).
