As part of our updates to the Test Studio Load Test documentation, we've added more information about using Dynamic Targets in your test. Dynamic Targets allow Test Studio Load Tests to track the value of key-value pairs contained in responses from the server under test, and include them in the appropriate follow-up requests. Since many web applications require user-specific values (like session IDs) to be returned with requests, this feature allows load test scenarios to simulate valid user traffic. This is important, since applications that do not receive valid key-value pairs may return errors. These errors typically create a greater load on the target server than valid responses, and so may distort the results of your load test. We hope this expanded documentation will give you more insight on how Dynamic Targets work, so that you can use them to improve your load test scenario.
