Important: TruClient Lite will be discontinued and this version is planned as the final TruClient Lite release. TruClient Lite 12.62 will still be available in the Chrome Web Store for a period of time, but will be removed in the future. We recommend that you use TruClient Standalone (https://admhelp.microfocus.com/tc/en/12.60-12.62/Content/TruClient/editions/editions_standalone.htm) version instead, available also in Micro Focus Marketplace. In addition, you can use TruClient as part of VuGen.
TruClient Lite is a tool for creating test scripts with your Chrome browser that can then be used in load testing web applications.
TruClient records your actions as you navigate through your business process and creates a script from your actions. The script can be enhanced with timing steps, by parameterizing step arguments, and in other ways.
Install and run TruClient Lite on a dedicated Chrome profile. This helps separate Chrome for daily use from Chrome for testing.
To create a dedicated profile for TruClient Lite for Chrome:
1. Create a new Chrome short-cut.
2. Right-click the short-cut, and select Properties. In the Target field, add the following command line arguments:
--user-data-dir="<new profile dir>" --extensions-on-chrome-urls --silent-debugger-extension-api --disable-web-security --no-first-run --disable-features=IsolateOrigins,site-per-process
where the <new profile dir> is a folder in your machine. Example:
--user-data-dir="C:\TCLiteChromeProfile" --extensions-on-chrome-urls --silent-debugger-extension-api --disable-web-security --no-first-run --disable-features=IsolateOrigins,site-per-process
3. Double click the short-cut to launch Chrome and install the TruClient Lite for Chrome extension.
1. Open terminate, execute following command line, input root user password when asked.
sudo mkdir -p -m '+rwx' /Users/$USER/Applications/TCLiteChrome.app/Contents/MacOS/; cd /Users/$USER/Applications/TCLiteChrome.app/Contents/MacOS/; echo '#!/bin/bash' >> TCLiteChrome; echo "open /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app --args --user-data-dir='/Users/$USER/TCLiteChromeProfile' --profile-directory='/Users/$USER/TCLiteChromeProfile' --extensions-on-chrome-urls --silent-debugger-extension-api --no-first-run --disable-web-security --disable-features=IsolateOrigins,site-per-process" >> TCLiteChrome; chmod 755 TCLiteChrome; cd /Users/$USER/Applications/; chmod 755 TCLiteChrome.app; osascript -e 'tell application "Finder" to make alias file to POSIX file "/Users/'$USER'/Applications/TCLiteChrome.app" at POSIX file "/Users/'$USER'/Desktop"';
2. Double click the TCLiteChrome alias created on desktop to launch Chrome and install the TruClient Lite for Chrome extension.
