Play or Pause a Test Compostion in Composition Editor

Click the Play button to play a test composition. If the test has already been loaded (using the Loading/Unloading button), the composition plays immediately.

Click the Pause button on the Player Control to pause a playing test. All message sends will be paused until resumed. Responses to previously sent messages are still received.

While a test is paused, the Result Details dashboard displays the Paused icon (instead of the Spinner icon that displays during play).

The Status Log indicator on the top right of the Composition Editor also indicates the paused status of play. Status updates appear to indicate the status of a playing composition.

  • To resume a paused composition, click the Play icon a second time (either in the Composition Editor or via Player Status > Compositions).

While the test plays, the Result Details dashboard displays the Spinner icon.
