Creating Parameters with the Parameter Wizard

The Parameter Wizard enables realistic functionality to be created for virtual users during tests by replacing recorded or scripted values with constant values, random values, or values pulled from multi-column data files. Each of these value types can be generated using the wizard. This means that you can furnish virtual users with varied personal data for all the information commonly required by Web forms (for example, names, addresses, zip codes, or credit card numbers).

The Parameter Wizard guides you through the process of creating variables and then places the variables in test scripts. A wide range of variable types are provided. Each variable type can generate different value types (strings containing text and/or numbers, serial numbers, whole numbers, and floating-point numbers).

Values can be randomized using different distribution patterns. Comprehensive sets of pre-defined data (for example, names, addresses, or passwords) are also provided.
