Begin recording and then perform the behavior or scenario that you want to test. The end result of this step is a recording that you can use to script and then test.

This section describes the procedure required to record with Conductor.

Before you begin you must:

  • Make sure you have downloaded Conductor.
  • Close any programs and applications that use the internet network to eliminate unnecessary HTTP traffic in your recording.

Start recording steps:

  1. Launch the Conductor application (formerly called SOASTA Conductor).
    Complete the initial configuration for Conductor, if you haven't already.

  2. Log in to CloudTest using either Safari or Chrome.

  3. Go to Central > Clips to open the Clip Editor.

  4. Click the New button in the toolbar.

  1. Click the Record button drop-down and select Record HTTP.
    The Recording Wizard opens.

  2. Select the Conductor launched in Step 1.

  3. Make sure the Conductor status is connected before proceeding.
    If Conductor is not connected, the process won't work. Refer to Configure Conductor to make sure Conductor is configured properly.

  4. Click the Record button in the bottom-right corner of the Recording Wizard.
    The Recording Wizard closes and the recording begins. To indicate Conductor is recording, the Record drop-down button appears lit and the screen will indicate "recording."

  5. Open an incognito window or private browsing window, depending on the browser you're using.

  6. In the new window, perform the steps you want captured for your testing scenario.
    The test clip created by the recording is located in the Central > Recordings list and appears there as if it were recorded in the Recording Editor and then converted using the wizard conversion Defaults.

  7. Stop recording and save: When you have performed all of the actions you want captured for your testing scenario, return to the first browser you opened that has the Clip Editor open, and click the Record button to stop your recording.
    Your clip is now saved under Center > Recordings list, where you can access it and begin to script your test.
