Configuring Scenario Start Delays

Using the Load Test Editor and the Properties window, you can specify a delay before a scenario starts in a load test.

An example of when you might want to use the Delay Start Time property is if you need one scenario to start producing items that another scenario consumes. You can delay the consuming scenario to enable the producing scenario to populate some data.

Another example is that you might have one scenario that is only run at a certain time of the day. So, you want to delay the start of the scenario to simulate this.

Add a delay before a scenario starts in a load test: You can add or change the delay start time property, which is the time that elapses between the beginning of the load test and when the scenario starts. For example, this can be useful in situations where a scenario has dependencies on another scenario's data.
