How to: Add a Transaction to a Web Test

A transaction in a Web test is like a timer. You can encapsulate a set of actions in a transaction. You can think of a typical transaction as starting a timer, requesting a page, requesting another page, and then ending the timer. This series of actions, from start to end, constitutes a transaction.

When using Web tests in a load test, transaction response times are displayed in the transaction table of the Load Test Analyzer. For more information, see Working with Load Test Tables.

To add a transaction

  1. Open a test project that contains a Web test of at least three requests, and open the Web test.

  2. Select the request where you want to start the transaction. Right-click and select Insert Transaction.

  3. In the Add Transaction dialog box, type the name of your transaction in Transaction name.

  4. In the Choose first item for transaction drop-down box, you see the request on which you started the transaction. You can change the starting point if you want.

  5. In the Choose last item for transaction drop-down box, you see the request on which you started the transaction. Change the ending point of the transaction by choosing a different request.

  6. Click OK. After you have closed the Add Transaction dialog box, you see that your transaction is now indicated by an icon in the Web Test Editor.
