Collections and Collection Types

Collections are logical containers that organize information in the test clip (and for which metrics are subsequently included in test results).

A container can represent a web page (Pages), messages or actions that are sequentially organized in a way that mimics network behavior (Chains), user-organized messages or actions (Groups), a representation of a programmatic workflow (Transactions), or a function in which conditional behavior occurs (If-Then-Else and Switch).

Within the Clip Editor and in Result Details, each collection type is indicated by a distinct icon and expands/collapses similarly. Each collection object has its own scope as indicated by the lock icon on the lower right. Click the Plus (+) sign to expand a collection and Minus (-) to collapse it.
