    Hi,

    I am trying to do a load test with multiple unique accounts logging into the test site at once. I am doing a data driven approach, however I do not think I am doing it right. I set up a test with 100 unique accounts bounded, however whenever I try to upload my test to the load test application by capturing user profile it will go through all the steps 100 times before being uploaded. Am I doing it correctly? I feel like I am doing something wrong as the test studio will sometimes crash when trying to go through all 100 accounts tests before being uploaded to the user profile for testing.

    Hello Kyle,

    To load test an application with multiple unique users you need to have the user profile once captured with a single user and then to data drive the corresponding HTTP transaction. Here is an article that provides general directions how best to design your load test. 

    Let me know if there is anything further I could be helpful with!

    Thank you for your help! However while reading through the data drive HTTP article I came to a problem as the testing requires the tester to type in the username and password. However when looking through the captured traffic for the login screen it fails to let me bind the unique user info with the premade accounts. I have attached a picture to give you more information about the problem, as the http header records my password and username but no way to bind them. Excuse my poor ms paint skills. Thank you.

    Hi Kyle,

    Please note what the value of the requestVerificationToken is. This is what you need to bind and there should be the unique user name and password. Check what part of it is dynamic and what should be included in the binding.
