Fileupload using Rest APIOpen in a New Window


I am currently developing VU Gen script for Fileupload REST API. This functionality has no UI and we need to test API with large files up to 100 MB.

So, we used


    "Name=File", "Value=C:\\Users\\justLR\\Desktop\\testupload.jpg", "File=yes",
    LAST );


 While testing API manually using CURL command, we need to give user ID, business unit ID ( Amazon S3 bucket name, where file gets uploaded), Content DIsposition as attachment, content type as multiplat/form Data.

When we used, web_custom_request ..we are getting an error with boundary ID at multipart/form-data. But, after switching to web_submit_data..there is no error with boundary ID. But, we are getting an error while uploading file to S3 bucket. The error message in server log diplays as Error during upload: Unnecessary filed occurs. Logfie is attached to showcase the error

I would like to know if there is any issed in web_submit_data.

Regarding failed web_custom_request is


"BodyFilePath=C:\\Users\\justLR\\Desktop\\testupload.jpg", "File=yes"",


Logfile for web_submit)data is as follows

Unable to record Citrix events while working with Multiple Protocol (Citrix ICA / Web HTTP/HTML)Open in a New Window

I am unable to record Citrix Applications published on Web portal using Multiple Protocol (Citrix ICA + Web). Web parts records properly but when I launch the published application it stops recording Citrix events. After completing the recording, last statement that I can see is

“ctrx_nfuse_connect("https://------------.com/Citrix/Store1Web/Resources/LaunchIca/Q29udHJvbGxlci5DYWxjdWxhdG9y.ica?CsrfToken={CitrixXenApp_CsrfToken}&IsUsingHttps=Yes", CTRX_LAST);”

I can record/replay with single protocol (Citrix ICA) using VuGen. Even manually, I can access/launch published application through Web portal/Web Shortcut.

I have gone through no. of blogs. I have done the basic setting, but no luck.

Can you please help me on this?


These are the details:

VuGen: installed on Window Server 2012 R2

Citrix Server: installed on Window Server 2012 R2

XenApp/XenDesktop: 7.9

Client Receiver: 14.X (already tried with 14.1/3/4/7)

Loadrunner 11.5: how to save Analysis file as TemplateOpen in a New Window

Windows environment: I ran a LR v11.5 controller scenario and created Analysis file from the test result. I want to save my new Analysis file as a Template (for future use). Surprisingly, there is no such option. "Tools| Templates" option only open 'Apply/Edit' template. If I click 'New' (icon) here, it create an new template with one of the the existing Templates format (not my new Analysis format).  Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.


Unusually high SSL Handshake time for Login transactionsOpen in a New Window

Hi All

We conduct performance test on 3 applications for the same client organizations. The settings for all 3 applications are similar . However for one of applications, the LR Analysis tool  shows unsually high 'SSL Handshake Time'' from the Worst URLs by Reponse Time table.

I see that most the login transactions for that applications have this behaviour. The 'Layers Breakdown' column shows that the 'SSL Handshake time' is unusually high compared to other 2 applications (Attaching a screenshot)

 For the same application, Normally the Login transaction takes around 0.2 seconds when run in VUGen. But during the load test this increases to an average of around 49 seconds which is not the actual login response time. screenshot below

I would like to the possible causes for this or any pointers on this ? Pls let me know if any other details needed. Whehre should I look for to troubleshoot ?SSL Handshkae time.jpg

Script recorded in TruClient protocol fails to run in Performance CentreOpen in a New Window

Issue: Script recorded in TruClient protocol fails to run in Performance Centre. The same scripts runs successfully in Vugen.( Load and Develop mode)

Error -205177: ** XXXimage ** failed - target object was not found.       Snapshot Info [MSH 1 0]    [MsgId: MERR-205177]

Vugen: 12.5

Performance Centre: 12.5 ( Remote Load Generator + Controller)   - LG and controller not managed by us hence version details not available to share

IE Version: 11

Business Flow :

  1. Navigate to Qlickview link
  2. Click on the report link.
  3. Report page gets loaded
  4. Logout

Note: End event for all steps set to Action completed.


Step 3 is where the object is not being found

Step 3.png

Settings used for Step 3 below

Step 3 Details Object.pngStep 3 Details.png


Options tried:


  1. Used ‘Wait for object’ before step 3 and wait interval was set to 300 secs , but still scripts fails when run in Performance Centre
  2. Current function used to recognize object is the ‘Generic Object Action’ function at step 3.
  3. In order to debug the script I have run the script in Performance centre with 2 users with sufficient time ( around 8-10 mins) for each user to ramp up . The ramp up happens fine but the step 3 in business flow fails due to target objet not found error.


Please help me resolve the issue. Also find attached the script for reference.
