I'm currently using Devtest 9.5.1 and usually when I want to test my virtual service before deploying it on a VSE I regularly use the ITR, which is great since most of my services are designed for "Most Efficient" (playback) mode.
However, this time I need to do some customization involving Standing-In mode, or Live Invocation and Failover with some customization in between. How do I set these different execution modes for ITR?
ITR seemingly only works with "Most Efficient" mode and the only way I know to test other modes is to deploy the service hit it and scroll through Inspection View. But I want to see the clear breakdown, any error messages, properties, details, etc in the ITR.
Try updating value for lisa.vse.execution.mode in local.properties file . By default it is "Efficient'.
Refer below link for different values:
Local Properties File - DevTest Solutions - 10.0 - CA Technologies Documentation
Also, check the project.config file in the DevTest Project. You might be able to add lisa.vse.execution.mode as the key and LIVE, EFFICIENT, etc. as the value. I believe the router step will pick up the value so you can isolate the test.
I have used the approach suggested by J_NeSmith to troubleshoot customized models. I believe the model would need to be re-opened after adding lisa.vse.execution.mode to a new config & making it active / modifying the value in project.config
monika_mehta's suggestion should work as well - would however need a restart of the Workstation.
Thanks Joel! I tried out your way and so far it works! Great to know.
