Security Exception in TrueClient FFOpen in a New Window

Hello ,

I am trying to record an http intranet site in TC FF with Vugen 12.50.  While replaying the script in the URL launch section, it prompts to add security Exception due to invalid Certificate status. This is an expected behaviour from FF as by default it will try to block anything that is not secured.

My problem is that I am not able to bypass this anyhow and it keeps coming back for every iteration. What I have tried till now:

1) Try to Confirm Security exception and move to next step but It comes back in during next iteration (option for parmanently store this exception is disabled) (screenshot attached)

2) Record a new script and while recording check in the box for permanently store this exception as this option is enabled during new recording. The prompt still appears again in next iteration. 

3) Export certificate and attach in the Trueclient general Setting. Certificates has valid dates. (Screenshot attached).

4) Add the certificate to Microsoft Management Console (MMC) to Pesonal, Trusted Publishers and Third Party Root certificate.

5) Open Firefox installed in %vugen_path%\bin\firefox\firefox.exe and go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Encryption and navigated to the certificate and did import. (i did not want to do this!)

Is there any way we could direct FF to bypass this and not look for https?

web_reg_find failsOpen in a New Window

I am unable to capture the count for a text string on an HTML page of a web based application.

When I open the application manually, I can see the text string but I cannot find the text string from View Source option of the browser.

I tried with both HTML mode and URL mode, it does't work. Looks like there are some async calls.

Please help me in handling this text check, as the result of this test check is used as entry criteria for other actions.

Parameterize XPath Object IdentificationOpen in a New Window

I am writing a script to select a checkbox in a row from a table, and either click yes or no. However, once I finish that checkbox the checkbox cannot be used again since it has already been given a yes or no. On the 2nd iteration, it will choose the 2nd checkbox, and give a yes or no. The 3rd, 4th, etc. 

I am trying to parameterize a number given from the XPath from the object identification. The Xpath given as, (for 3 rows):


As you see, the third digit (red) corresponds to the row that the checbox is in that the script will select. I need to parameterize that number so that the script will check a different row every iteration, and also work for multiple pages. I will have to go through over 3000 rows, so I will need a way to make the script work for every page. Also, the table has 25 rows per page, so once the 26th iteration comes, the parameter number will need to be back at 1 again, since the 1st row on the second page is still the 1st row, not the 26th. 

Is there a way to do this?

Re: Pop - up recognition in Ajax Tru Client Protocol


Truclient 12.5  firefox/chrome  OS popup window while uploading text file

I am trying to upload .txt file using firefox (also tried chrome)  and popup window is opened( this window seems like from local system).Thing is , the script is able to enter the file path in the  browse field..Now, the popup remains open and its not clsoing as this is not recorded. 

However , the next step in the script is to click upload. As the pop window is opened , the application  browser window is not activated and the script is failing. My script passes only after closing the popup window (or click cancel button on pop window).  Can you please help me if tehre is anything code that closes OS opened window?

In simple , after browing file path from OS pop up window , the script should activate main application browser window  and continue by ignoring file uplaod pop window.

the request URL and body can be parameterizied only if using callback?Open in a New Window


According to 'https://community.hpe.com/t5/LoadRunner-and-Performance/Testing-asynchronous-business-processes-with-LoadRunner/ba-p/6029011#.WD6bl9J96mw',

The request callback is called before each request is sent. This allows you to modify the sent request (for example, it allows parameterizing the request URL and body).

Q: That mean the request URL and body can be parameterizied only if using callback?


For example, 





Q: Can I just use parameter to replace '123' in body instead of using the concept of Callbacks?


Thanks a lot for the help. Hope that I have explained the question clearly.

Load Runner Analysis - Transaction Summary not generated in the ReportsOpen in a New Window

We've recently moved to Performance Center, and while everything is appearing normally in the Load Runner Analysis tool, when I attempt to generate a report, the transaction summary (which I've always configured and included in reports in the past), is just not generating.  I'm not receiving any errors, or even blank pages in the report.  Just the transaction summary is completely missing, and the next element in the configuration appears.

I'm using LR Analysis 12.53 Build 1203

If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated.  Thanks in advance!
