You can quickly find and replace text in the Web requests of a Web performance test by using the Web Performance Test Editor.

You can create a context parameter to easily replace all instances of a string in the Web test with the context parameter by using Find and Replace in Request. For example, if you want to parameterize the site portion of http://servername/sitename/sitepage you could create a context parameter for sitename called {{newsitename}} and use Find and Replace in Request to replace all the instances in the Web performance test of sitename with newsitename. For more information, see How to: Use Context Parameters in a Web Performance Test.

NoteNote

You cannot use CTRL+F for find and replace functionality in a Web performance test. CTRL+F opens the Visual Studio Find and Replace dialog box. In a Web performance test, you must use the Find and Replace in Request in the shortcut menu of a node.
