Adding blocks to your application

LoadGen Recorder consists of 3 sections:
  • In the left pane, you have your Toolbox, with all the actions you want to add to your flow (when running your flow in the Recorder this pane will change to actions pane with the results of your run).
  • In the middle pane, you have the Application block, here you have all the sections of your Flow and the tools or actions that you have written.
  • For RDS and Citrix profile (defined in the LoadGen Director) you will see a pane that will host your session (Local Client profile will use your current machine window session to run your script).
