Tips #43: Where is my VSEasy in DevTest 8.0.1?

By Koustubh Warty posted Feb 24, 2015 02:30 PM


A question came up sometime last week about the VSEasy feature in DevTest 8.0.1. So thought about blogging some important details about this feature.

Introduction (from Lisa 7.5.x)


We've had VSEasy feature since the Lisa 7.5.x days. The reason why it was created was mainly for ease of use and simplicity to enable the users to simply provide either request/response pairs or a VRS file and create a Virtual Service within seconds. This feature supports the following -

- creation of stateless virtual services with HTTP with JSON, XML, SOAP and HTML payloads

- to configure non-HTTP virtual services using VRS ( recording session files)

The location of VSEasy for Lisa 7.5.x is within the Lisa Console as shown below in the VSEasy-old.png attachments.

VSEasy for DevTest 8.0.1


- This feature no longer exists in the DevTest Console (formerly known as Lisa Console)

- It's new location is within the beautiful DevTest Console that can be accessed at - http://YourDevTestServer:1507/devtest

- The menu link is called Virtualize using RR pairs as shown in the VSEasy-new.png attachment.

- You simply need to provide either Request/Response pairs or an existing VRS file

- A port is chosen dynamically during VS creation and the VS is deployed on that port

- A new Virtual Service is created, deployed and up and running

Important points to remember


- If a Service Group tag is not provided, then the default Service Group tag of vseasy is automatically used

- On the Virtualize using RR pairs page, a bunch of sample request/response files are provided that you can get started with

- If you would like to update an existing VS, then simply provide the same Service Name and the existing VS will be overwritten

- The older link of VSEasy in the DevTest Console no longer exists


P.S. Tip #44 and so on to follow soon. Planning to provide some information on setting up Enterprise Dashboard with a remote database, setting up DevTest with LDAP, configuring SSL, and so on.
