What's New in LoadRunner Cloud 2021.04

LoadRunner Cloud is already a fantastic performance testing solution. It already has cloud-hosted load generators, flexible licensing models, and global accessibility.

As with all Micro Focus products though, LoadRunner Cloud has a strong development backlog. The latest release, LoadRunner Cloud 2021.04, includes some noteworthy additions...

LoadRunner Cloud 2021.04 – Release Highlights

Released in April 2021, LoadRunner Cloud 2021.04 has many new features and enhancements that you might not know about.

We've pulled out 3 of the most useful below:

  1. Run Previews
  2. Extended Support for Access Keys
  3. Report Templates

To see what else is included in this release, check out the link and video at the bottom of the page.

1. New Run Preview Window

Have you ever executed a performance test only to realise halfway through, or later, that something wasn't quite right?

With the new Run Preview window, you can see your run details before you kick it off. The Run Preview window gives you a quick view of:

  1. Load generators vendors and locations
  2. Number of Vusers assigned to each generator
  3. The script assigned to each generator

Run Preview lets you assess whether you're running the right tests, with the right Vuser, distribution across the right generators.

For more details, see Run Preview in the LoadRunner Cloud Help Center.

2. Extended Support for Access Keys

Do you use LoadRunner within a CI/CD pipeline? This might be a feature you've been looking out for...

You can now use access keys to simplify LoadRunner Cloud authentication in Jenkins, Bamboo, Azure DevOps, and CLIs. 

If you want to learn more about how LoadRunner integrates into your DevOps landscape, check out the CI Tools page in the LoadRunner Cloud Help Center.

3. Selectable report templates

LoadRunner Cloud emails a report at the end of every test run. You can now choose the template for that report.

Within these templates, you can choose the fields you want to see in your report. For example, the 'Summary Only' report template below shows all ticked fields.

For more information, visit the Templates page in the LoadRunner Cloud Help Center.
