Tying Seed Data to a Virtual User(s)

Use the Property value is tied to the virtual user setting with a subordinate setting, New value per virtual user iteration to pair a given virtual user to a distinct slice of data.

Tip: In Cloud Test, an instance of a Track is generally used to represent a “virtual user”. Parallel repeat renewal of the Track is generally used to represent “iterations” of a virtual user.
  • Property value is tied to the virtual user

When checked, all Custom Properties within the same virtual user that reference the same seed data source will get the same single seed data value.

  • New value per virtual user iteration

When checked, then each iteration of the virtual user will get a new value. In the example above, the two Custom Properties in the two Messages will get the same value within each iteration of the virtual user, but each iteration will have a different value.

If there are multiple references to the same seed data source from different Custom Properties within the same virtual user, each such Custom Property will get a different value from the seed data.

For example, if Custom Properties defined in two different Messages in the same Clip both refer to the same seed data source, each will get its own value from the seed data.
