Real Browser User Script Options
Real Browser User Support is a way of simulating the Internet access & Browsers executing the transaction via “real” browser (Real Browser Users or RBU). RBU’s are much more heavy weight than typical Virtual users as for an RBU NetStorm uses real browser to download page.
- BrowserUserProfile: The entire changes user makes in Firefox, like home page, what toolbars used, saved passwords and bookmarks, are all stored in a special folder, called a profile.
- HarLogDir: Name of the log file where har file is generated. Default name is logs.
- PageLoadWaitTime: Estimated time required to load the page. Default is 30 sec.
- VncDisplayId: Implies vnc server display number. Default is 1.
- HarRenameFlag: Indicates har files should be renamed or not.
- 1: Rename the har file, adding page name to har.
- 0: Do not rename the har. Keep the har file name as generated by the browser.
It is used when user is using Netstorm browser for script recording. Here, user can set the Netstorm browser options and can perform the configuring settings. To perform the Netstorm Browser settings, click the Netstorm Browser tab. The Netstorm Browser setting dialog box is displayed.
There are following options under Netstorm browser tab:
Netstorm Browser Options
Here user can set following browser level options:
- Image Download
- Disable Plug-ins
- Ignore security certificate warnings
- Enable Snapshot Capturing
- Enable PreSnapshot Capturing
|By default all check boxes are selected.|
- Setting User Agent: This option is used set the string in request/response. Default user agent string is Mozilla/4.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20111103 Firefox/3.6.24
- Browser Engine: User can set browser engine which is used for downloading. By default, it is Mozilla.
- Open browser in Heavy Weight Mode: In the heavyweight rendering mode, we embed a native window into your Java application window and configure Chromium engine to render content into this native window using GPU. User interaction with displayed web page is done by Chromium engine. Chromium receives and processes mouse/keyboard/touch events using platform specific native functionality. It brings a better support of mouse/keyboard/touch events compared to lightweight rendering mode where NetStorm Browser has to process Java events and forward them to Chromium engine. Therefore, if rendering performance is very important for your application, then we recommend that you use default heavyweight rendering mode.
Configure proxy server for recording
In this section, user can configure proxy server for recording. A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource available from a different server and the proxy server evaluates the request as a way to simplify and control its complexity.
No proxy: By selecting this option, no proxy is applied to access the web server. This is the default option.
Use system proxy settings: If user selects this option, the proxy settings which are set for the system is applied. In case system proxy is already defined, those settings are loaded for any view/updation. Else, it appears as in case of manual proxy configuration. User can configure system proxy settings and save them. System proxy setting would be configurable only from default scenario settings when user login as Admin.
Use manual proxy settings: In manual proxy settings, set up the proxy manually.
The Manual proxy section contains the following options:
Manual proxy configurations
- HTTP Proxy: An HTTP proxy is a category of network setting that can be configured in network (or Internet) accessing applications. Specify the HTTP proxy in the following format: http://ip:port. Port number ranges from 1 to 65535. By default, it is 80.
- SSL Proxy: It routes traffic from a client to web server using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. SSL is an encrypted protocol that creates a secure connection from a client to another client or server. Specify the SSL proxy in the following format: https://ip:port
Port number ranges from 1 to 65535. By default, it is 443.
|To have same proxy server for both HTTP and HTTPs protocols, select the Use same proxy server for both protocols check box. All protocols are using same server and port for all the protocols.|
- Exceptions: Exceptions options get enabled in case Manual proxy configuration check box is selected. To bypass proxy server for local address, specify the local address for example, 168.1.0/24 in the No Proxy for text box then select the Bypass proxy server for local address check box.
- Proxy authentication credential: User’s credentials are verified here. If user selects the Proxy authentication credential check box, the following options are displayed. Enter the User Name, Password and Confirm Password.
|Password and Confirm password values are encrypted and are verified at the back end.|
Debugging Tools Support in NetStorm Browser
Debugging tools support enables a user to view the request / response in script recording using NetStorm browser.
When user clicks the icon, debug mode is ON. User can see the request / response over the network.
This section is used to perform header settings and cookie settings for recording a script. To perform these settings, click the Modify Header tab. The Modify Header settings dialog box is displayed.
The purpose of header setting section is to manually specify the header name and its value. User can add more than one header in the script by clicking the More button. User can also replace or append the header. In case of Replace, the header specified replaces the existing header. In case of Append, the specified header is appended to the existing header.
The purpose of cookie setting section is to manually specify the cookie name and its value. User can add more than one cookie in the script by clicking the More Cookie button.
In some cases, if user wants to record headers, such as Referer, User agent String in flow file of script so that NetStorm can send only those headers which are present in flow file of script. In this case, user needs to record all headers in flow file of script. For this, Advanced tab for Header recording is implemented in Script Manager GUI.
There are following headers options in Advanced tab:
If user selects All check box, then All Headers checkbox is enabled and displayed in flow file of recorded script. User can select any of the header check box provided.
If Add Transaction check box is selected, then transactions (i.e. start transaction and end transaction) are automatically added to all the pages of recorded script in flow file.
