Setting Repeats using a Global Property List

The following example uses a global property list with two properties, Clip repeat count and Track repeat count . Refer to Create a Global Property for step-by-step instructions to create a global property list called Demo using Repeat By Property.

In the list shown on the right.

  • Clip repeat count is set to 2.
  • Track repeat count is set to 8. CloudTest uses track repeat count as a virtual user.
  1. Open the test composition to edit.
  1. Select the track.
  2. Right-click the track and then select Edit Properties.

The Properties tab appears with the track node selected in the list and its settings displayed on the right.

  1. In the General tab, click Enable Repeat, the Repeat Method drop-down select "Repeat By Property."
  1. Double click the property field (e.g. where it says [not specified]).
  2. In the Path box click the Global Property Lists node, and then select the global property list created above (for example, Demo using Repeat By Property).
  3. In the Global tab, select Track repeat count.
  1. Select the test clip.
  2. Right-click the clip and then select Edit Properties.

The Properties tab appears with the clip node selected in the list and its settings displayed on the right.

  1. Click the Repeat tab and check Enable Repeat.
  2. Select "Repeat By Property" in the Repeat Method drop-down.

How to

  1. Double click the property field (e.g. where it says [not specified]).
  2. In the Path box click the Global Property Lists node, and then select the global property list created above (for example, Demo using Repeat By Property).
  3. In the Global tab, select Clip repeat count.

What you should see

Once the repeat value is specified, save the test composition.

Play the test composition. When play is completed, the Result Details dashboard appears (unless a different default dashboard has been defined for this composition. If the dashboard doesn't display, open it, or add the Result Details widget to an existing custom dashboard.

Using the navigation tree, verify that there are the expected number of virtual users (track repeats) as well as clip repeats. For example, in the sample Global property list above, there were 8 virtual users (e.g. 8 Track repeat counts) with a Clip repeat count of 2 (e.g. the test clip played twice per virtual user).

Additional complexity can easily be built using these techniques. For example, a composition with multiple tracks, each with its own property, or several tracks controlled by a single property, among many other options.
