    My team has been using Test Studio for a few months now for automated UI testing, and it has been great.


    We would like to start using it for Load Testing, and I have been reading documentation and experimenting for a while with some luck. The thing I am looking for some insight on is the best way to go about doing load testing with an application that will only allow one login per user. Basically it looks like if we do 50 virtual users based on one login, it isn't doing much because it is constantly logging out each user. Does this mean I will have to make as many real accounts and record that many user profiles to create a realistic test ? Or is there a better way to do this ?

    Hello Owen,

    Thank you for reaching us out! I am glad to hear you are satisfied with Test Studio. 

    The idea of load testing against an application is to execute http requests concurrently simulating multiple users accessing the page. Since your application allows a single login per user it will be necessary to create real users to be used in the user profile. 

    Though a single profile for a scenario is sufficient as you can data drive it and simulate different users executing the same http requests. Additionally the dynamic targets feature could be of further help for you. Also you have the ability to add custom targets as per the application specifics. 

    I hope this information will be useful for you. Though in case you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me again!
