  1. WebMeasureSet should create a TrueLog entry

    When a WebMeasureSet call is made from a script, the TrueLog should show the measure if a new one is created.

  2. Ability to keep track of all response time thresholds from all baselines and not just the most recent one in SilkPerfomer.

    The requirement for this enhancement stems from the business need of being able to create multiple workloads with each workload serving a specific purpose (for example to test a specific browser type cross test scenario). Each workload is configured to test a specific browser and/or scenario and therefore needs to retain its response time thresholds for comparisons against future results.

    Unfortunately, currently when you take a new baseline all existing response time thresholds are overwritten, making comparisons against future results difficult.

    SI #2780163

  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.

  7. 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?

  8. Ability to record browser presented in an appplication that is presented through Citrix

    Most of the organisations using virtualisation and presenting applications through Citrix. With the current Citrix & Citrix Web Interface we are unable to record browser interactions that are presented within an application.

    User will be logging in to his Citrix session and opens the applications for a busines process. Some of these business process open a browser within the application.

  9. ip spoofing with BDLT

    It would be nice if SILK PERFORMER would support ip spooing in the Browser Driven Load Test mode, as it currently will not support this presently. Given how much more we are using the BDLT mode as opposed to HTML/HTTP, this would certainly be a nice to have feature.

  10. Remembering the run number for the results folder

    Up to and including SP10 when running a test the new results subfolder would keep track of and increment a Run number. Starting with SP15 the introduction of using the workload name and adding a timestamp to the name of the results folder, the results folder name defaults to the workload name and does not "remember" the previously used folder name. Please bring back the Run number! It is much easier for reporting and tracking.

  11. SP hardcoded to pick latest version of Visual studio add-on, Adding option to pick required VS version is a great feature.

    SP is hard coded to pick latest version of visual studio, It will be good feature, if Silk performer had option to pick different versions of .Net Addon i.e. with Visual Studio 2008/2010/2012.

  14. simplify REST testing

    I can use SP for testing REST services; OK; but at the same time, this is an opportunity for SP to shine by adding some simple functionality to make the process more friendly. For example, SP could interpret the REST request and present the user with some nice forms.

  15. Modify the in private recording setting

    The in private mode set in IE by default for SP 15 onwards is interfering with the recording on some environments which don't allow in private mode to be used. When this happens the in private argument needs to be removed or IE wont open. It would be beneficial to either remove this, or have this as a separate IE profile so users could select whether they wanted to use in private or not. Alternatively if the installer could check if the gpo which disables this functionality is in place and install the appropriate application profile.

  16. Wizard to replace Dates and times.

    It's a drag to having to create functions to manage and create Dates and Times. Should have a wizard to this the same way you're able to replace string parameters.

  17. View all session candidates in one single go instead of traversing page by page

    After a replay, it will be helpful to view all the session candidates in one single go (with a link to the corresponding page in the TrueLog) in the Diff window instead of traversing page by page.

  18. Allow WebVerifyXXXX functions to verify for an array of strings

    When WebVerifyXXXX (e.g. WebVerifyDataBoundEx) functions are used, only one verify string can be specified. There are many cases when two or more possible values can be valid. Allowing sVerify string to be optionally an array of strings would make the functions very useful. For now, WebParseDataBoundEx has to be used and check for the possible values.

  19. BrowserStart enhancement

    BrowserStart in bdlt currently allows you to set certain options like screen size. It would be helpful to extend this function to allow extra parameters to specify window position (if running multiple users in visible mode for debugging) and the ability to go visible on error and pause on error for debugging, which allows the window to become visible and pause when an error state is encountered. Time for debugging would be greatly reduced for support and customers.
