How can we improve Silk Performer?

  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Implement GIT source control

    Version control is an invaluable tool not only for developers but also for performance testers.
    Using version control helps to make occasionally mistakes unhappen.
    it also is a basis for a professional collaboration within in a testing team.

    We are planning to run loadtest out of SCTM using GIT as source control.
    Unfortunately the Microfocus tools do not support a consistent tool chain. In opposite to SCTM Silkperformer’s source control integration does not provide support for contemporary version control solutions.

  2. Right click context menu for declaring variables

    When coding it would be nice if after typing a new variable you could right click on it and declare it at the top automatically.

  3. Add in some new css styles for overview reports

    At present there is only one template for overview reports, some flexibility would be good here to better customize the finished report. only basic customization is available at the moment.

  4. Post test results to a web server

    It would be good to have results automatically posted to a web server and a link provided for where they are available.

  5. Datasource explorer

    have data source explorer like in visual studio for adding databases, csv files and also xml files and other data sources for data driven tests. Also the ability to strip files when data has been used and other parameters like loop back to start at the end of a file and stop a test when data is finished.
