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.( Interactive 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.

How to Provision LG's on VM's hosted on new Azure Management PortalOpen in a New Window

Hi Team,

I want to perform load test on Azure Cloud based Application through LG's hosted on Cloud VM.

On searching HP blogs, I found the below URL for steps to configure the cloud based LG (Azure with old Management Portalfrom) from LR12.02 controller.


Now, I have LR 12.53 Patch 4 and Azure with New Management Portal, can you please provide the steps to configure LG on New Azure Portal.

As of now I do not see any "Manage Certificates" tab in new Azure Portal. On search in google found that Microsoft no longer given option of Manage Certificates in New Portal. How do I configure? Please advice.

"N/A" instead of response time in a trend report?Open in a New Window


I'm using PC 12.53.  I have a trend report to which runs are automatically added via the HP ALM Jenkins plugin.  Sometimes all of the response times for a particular run show as N/A.  Why is that?  It doesn't seem to coincide with failing the SLA and there doesn't appear to be any problem adding that run to the report that I can see.




HP VuGen - TruClient IE v12.02Open in a New Window

Having difficulty getting a drop-down menu to appear, in order to select the needed description on the form.  I can get the drop-down to work and replay using Develop Mode and Load Mode, however when running tests via Performance Center, this drop-down menu object always fails to be found, and therefore cannot select a value within the drop-down.   This is a required field, and is blocking current testing of 2 different workflows.  Until this version of the applciation tested, I was using TruClient Firefox without issues.  Unfortunately, the application no longer supports FF, so I  need to use IE TruClient.   

I have tried various methods of selecting the object via ID Methods: Automatic, xpath, JavaScript, Descriptors.  Clicking on the field, tabbing into it, and pressing enter on the Description field.  All of these work via VUGEN, but the object fails during performance testing.  I am currently only trying 1 user at a time.  

The steps would be: 
Click Edit Line Item  
Select Category
Select Description 

Description Button XPATH = //div[@id="EditLineItem"]/table/tbody/tr[2]/td[2]/span[1]/div/span/span

Description Box XPATH = //*[@id="EditLineItem"]/table/tbody/tr[2]/td[2]/span[1]/div/input

**Description Box once expanded = //ul[@id="ui-id-1"]

The Description box once expanded above is what is not happening during PC12 load tests, and therefore the menu option within it fails.  

I have also tried to parameterize this field, but when I do that the value gets populated, but since it is not selected from the drop down menu, the Required field never goes away and therefore the form will not save.

Need to override the TruClient limit on using the same transaction name multiple times in a scriptOpen in a New Window

I often have scripts that browse our website and often have to hit the same page, such as homepage, and I would like to be able in TruClient to combine the measurements into one transaction as I do with HTTP/HTML scripts.  However the TruClient UI prevents using the same transaction name multiple times in the same script.  Anyone have a way to overcome this limitation.  I know why it is there since it has a transaction editor that assigns "properties" to the transaction such as when it should start/end, etc. so having it used in multiple places would corrupt this assignment.  But combining measurements is VERY common in HTTP/HTML scripts so there has to be something we can do in TruClient.


Lab Management -> Host Filter options "Belongs to Pools" no filter availableOpen in a New Window


In version 12.01 Performance Center,  Lab Management  Site,  under Lab Resources -> Hosts ->  "Belongs to Pools" is disabled, not able to filter with pool name, Remaining all other columns able to filter (Source, Name\IP, Purpose, etc..)

Why this column alone is disabled, want to filter the hosts based on the pool, but not able to filter. 

Experts, please provide any alternate solutions (SQL query, or any other option), and the reason for this column disable. Thanks.

JDBC instance details in Diagnostics 9.26Open in a New Window

Hi Experts,

I would like to view the details of the individual instances of JDBC components from Diagnostics.

I observe that the details are populated by default for probes using Diagnostics 9.24, but I am unable to see the details individually for the probes using Diagnostics 9.26.

Please advise if this is version specific and if we need to enable any property explicitly for instrumenting the components.

Expecting a response sooner. Thanks in advance.



Plug-in to connect to Performance CenterOpen in a New Window


Do we need to install any plug-in on a VDI machine to connect to Performance Center installed on different domain/Network? 

We are able to connect using the base machine, but when connecting through VDI browser (IE 11), we are getting "Page cannot be displayed error"

We replaced the resource name with IP address and tried connecting but was of no help. 

Thank you.

regenerate (republish) run trends for inclusion in a trend reportOpen in a New Window


my problem is that i selected a certain run for addition to a trend report. After this action it the run was trended as can be seen in the eventlog of the run: Publish trends started successfully. It ended up in the state Trended. Unfortunately something must have gone wrong since the percentile value for many measuraments have a value N/A in the trend report (I suspect that the problem was in the analysis).

My question is  can I regenerate (or republish) the trended data?

Installing HP Performance Center on AWS EC2Open in a New Window


We are exploring the option of moving all our ALM / UFT and PC infra from in-house machines to AWS EC2 cloud. I was able to install ALM / UFT and PC Server successfully and configure the same. PC Host installation/configuration passed as well. I can see all the related servcies running. But when I try to add the host in Lab Management, I get the following error when :

java.xml.ws.WebServiceException: org.apache.cxf.service.factory.ServiceConstructionException: Failed to create service

I have all the admin rights to the machine. All related ports have been opened. Firewall is disbaled. The PC load testing agent service is up and running as well. So not sure what service this is referring to. I tried creating a service ticket but that was shot down saying PC host is not supported on AWS EC2. Only standalone LG is supported. If I was able to install/configure PC server, I am wondering why PC host cannot be. Has anybody been successful at this? 

Any idea what this error message refers to? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
