Numbers in Automatic Correlation

Hi all,

I am using LR 9.52 Version and recording a script using HTTP/HTML protocol with automatic correlation enabled. The code for automatic correlation in correlation studio is defined as:



Action : Search for parameter in all of the body and text

Left Boundary : SessionID='

Right Boundary : '

Parameter prefix : sessionID


However at the time of script generation its displaying:


/* Registering parameter(s) from source task id 74
    // {sessionID2} = "A42050E126439F656BE542"
    // */




Although, rest is fine, I am not sure why this 2 is getting clubed with sessionID, If anybody can clear me on this.

Re: Numbers in Automatic Correlation

My understanding of auto-correlation is that it will correlate every instance (_1, _2 ... _n). However, it will only put a correlation in a script as and when it is used. If the first time your SessionID is used in the script is the 2nd time it was sent, you will get _2.


Could someone corroborate (or shoot down) this explanation?

Re: Numbers in Automatic Correlation

That is correct, auto-correlation is creating a parameter for every unique instance of the SessionID variable. In some applications, you can simply overwrite the parameter each time and save on memory used by each vuser, but you will want to compare values used by your script during replay before making any modifications.
