Defining User Types

The next step in the process of conducting a Silk Performer load test is to define one or more user types for the active workload. A user type is a unique combination of a script, a user group, and a profile. By selecting a user type, you determine which script will be executed with which user group and profile.

To find out what your active workload is, expand the Workloads node in the Project tree. The active workload is shown in bold text.

Click Define User Types on the workflow bar to access all necessary settings.

Note: The Define User Types button on the workflow bar is only visible when the simple workflow bar is enabled. The workflow bar displays the simplified workflow by default. To switch between the workflow bar types, right-click on the workflow bar and click Show Simple Workflow Bar, Show Full Workflow Bar, or Show Monitoring Workflow Bar.
