Re: Whats the best protocol to use to record Microsoft Outlook script in VuGen?

Hello,

 

I don't think there is a Vugen protocol you can use to record Outlook, but you can try creating a MAPI protocol script to generate activity with an Exchange server. This is documented in the HP Virtual User Generator User Guide under "Mailing Service Protocols".

Hi,

 

Is it an option to validate the server performance using Outlook Web Access?

I am trying to record the web access (browser based) of the outlook and the outlook directly to use MAPI protocol.

Can you please share your experience with the outlook web access? Which protocol are you using? Do you see any issue?

Re: Whats the best protocol to use to record Microsoft Outlook script in VuGen?

As I was trying to access the Outlook via a browser (IE 8.0), I tried to record it using Ajax TruClient protocol instead of using MAPI protocol (need to use it only when outlook is accessed directly - am I correct?). But it was not rubust as it runs successfully sometimes and it does not move on to the next step (stuck) after logging in.

 

The steps I am trying to record are: login, click drafts and logout.

When tried to record using the standard HTTP protocol, could not record after seeing the logging page because of a couople of image files taking long time to download. Version of the LR we use 11.03.

Hi,

 

Have you managed to record all the steps with TruClient protocol?

Is the replay passing sometimes or it is always failing. What is the error message you are receiving.

 

Kind regards,

Vesela

Hi,

 

For the downloading image issue you can try the following in Web(http/thml) protocol in Recording Options -> HTTP Properties -> Advanced -> Content Types -> Exclude content types in list and mark image/jpeg and image/gif.

 

Kind regards,

HTTP protocol: It was .png files taking long time to download so selecting the other image files option does not help. There isn't an option for .png in the list.

 

Ajax: It does not give any error message and I have to force it to stop.

Hi, 

 

You can add image/png by clicking on the + button. 

If I understand you correctly, in Ajax TruClient during recoding hangs due to this page download. Is this correct? 

 

Kind regards,
