Know what versions of Rational Performance Tester (RPT) are currently supported or planned for use with ITCAM for Transactions
RPT can be used to record and upload robotic script tests to monitor HTTP or HTTPS web applications, SAP, Siebel, or Citrix applications for performance and/or availability.
RPT is a product developed independently of ITCAMfT. This sometimes means there are newer versions of RPT available before being supported by ITCAMfT.
You might be developing tests that require new features only available in the latest versions of RPT or you might need help with specific RPT issues from RPT support which result in a recommendation to upgrade to a newer version of RPT.
If RPT tests are being developed for export to ITCAMfT it is your responsibility to make sure you only use a version of RPT supported for use with the version of ITCAMfT Robotic Response Time (RRT) agent you have installed or plan to install.
To check what versions of RPT are supported by what versions of ITCAMfT take a look at the ITCAM RPT RFT Robot Support Matrix
