  1. Ability to run scripts sequentially, one after the other.

    I wanted to run a single user test, meaning at any given time only 1 user should be there in the system, with about 20 scripts for an application. There wasn't any easy way to do this as I had to use the same logic (project attributes) at 20 different locations. Time consuming really. An option to execute scripts one after the other would help a great deal.

  2. Allow BrowserFind and BrowserFindAll be used for any arbitrary HTML code block

    BrowserFind and BrowserFindAll are extremely useful functions to obtain DOM element from any HTML block. Currently, they only allow to search the HTML code returned from web server. Perhaps such can be implemented like the XML-related functions.

  3. "Instance Count" - Default is 2 in SCM - it should be 1

    Very bad idea to have same agent running 2 tests - especially if you are using BDLT

    what is the scenario? usually the agent is locked for simultaneous test executions. The default 2 is due to an error being raised if a test is executed right after a previous one. While the agent is shutting down, a new agent should be allowed to be started. If the scenario requires a 1 explicitly a workaround is available via SCM

  4. export

    Exporting truelog for a xls, html or pdf to usnig that results

  5. Allow the use of left and right boundaries in recording rules to refine where variables are inserted.

    In recording rules, we can use left and right boundaries to show where we want to pull data from to create a variable. It would be helpful if we could use the same boundary idea to specify exactly where in the script we want these variables used - as an example, I am working with an asynchronous application that sends larges packets that lack context headers; however, the packet shape is static enough to where the ability to precisely say where to insert the formID values is possible if only I could tell it to insert it between words X…

  6. Spliting up the response time from Total Time.

    Spliting up the response time from Total Time.

    Example:

    In one of my application after clicking the tab, grid is going to load in 3 passes i.e. first the standard columns, then the column of action buttons, then the user-defined property columns.
    We want to measure response time for all 3 stages individually. Currently this is not possible using silkperformer tool.Using “fiddler” tool we can do it

  7. Add functionality/button to retrieve remote agent .tsd files

    Add functionality/button to retrieve remote agent .tsd files when there is an issue in getting them to the controller; currently, they have to be manually copied which is very time consuming. NOTE: This would only work BEFORE another test had been started.

  8. SilkPerformer 15.5

    We are currently unable to record and playback scripts using the Citrix client. The current support matrix states it only supports up to the 7.0 client. We need support for the 7.5 client. Is there any enhancement available for this?
