Pinned topic Unable to record a test using Google Chrome in Rational Performance Tester

‏2012-07-23T10:49:15Z |
Hi,

I am trying to record a HTTP test using Chrome. As Chrome is not available as a direct options for browser in RPT, I am selecting the managed application option and providing details of google chrome.
The test generation fails with the below error :
RPTO0029E The Recording contains NO Protocol Data for any installed Test Generator

Can anyone tell me whether google chrome is supported by RPT as a browser or as a managed application, and if yes, how can I proceed to do that.
Thanks in Advance.

Regards,
Harshit Singhania

    Chrome isn't supported but you should be able to record with it via the managed application route. You do need to specify a manual SOCKS proxy setting using port 1080.

    I have used the unmanaged application while recording http test using Chrome, and set the proxy port to 1080 in Chrome.

    Hi All,

    I am using RPT 8.3 and as per the business requirement I have to execute the test using google crome. But I am not able to record the script using crome. Using IE and Firefox I am able to record the same flow.

    Please suggest, will appreciate any help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Rohit

    Hi,

    can you describe in more detail what is meant by "am not able to record the script using Chrome"?  Does the browser not launch, does it launch and nothing's recorded, etc?

    Thank you

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks again Paul for your swift response.

    Let me brief you about the RPT architecture. The tool is published on Citrix and we are launching the RPT from there.

    The browser is getting launch but its not sending any request to the server. With the same proxy setting I am able to record the flow using IE and Firefox. When we are launching the RPT from the same Citrix server using RDP ( not using Citrix), we are able to record the application using crome.

    I am attaching the sceenshots for Crome and Firefox for your reference.

    P.S : We can record the application from Citrix server but it would not be proper solution as we are targeting Citrix as an end-to-end solution.

    Thanks,

    Rohit.

    Hi,

    the good news is it looks like the Chrome browser is launched.

    It looks like in the screenshot the readme file isn't being loaded, this doesnt affect anything, it's the same readme that's shown for Firefox and IE to clear the cache, etc.

    What happens when you enter the URL for the app in the Chrome Browser, does it connect to the app?

    If it doesnt, compare the proxy settings at recording time to the proxy settings of IE at recording time.  I don't use Chrome so not sure how to check the proxy settings, but for IE its Tools -> Internet options then Connections tab then Lan Settings
