Loadmill desktop recorder

Loadmill Desktop Recorder is a powerful tool designed to simplify and enhance your deviceless testing experience. By capturing user interactions with your application at the API level, the Desktop Recorder allows you to quickly and efficiently create end-to-end API-driven test flows.
There are three main components that work together to provide a powerful and efficient testing solution:
  1. 1.
    Loadmill UI: Same as the web interface for managing your testing process. With the Loadmill UI, you can edit and execute test flows, and access reporting and run results.
  2. 2.
    MITM Proxy: The integrated Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) proxy allows you to capture API traffic from your mobile device by intercepting the communication between the device and the backend servers.
  3. 3.
    Loadmill Agent: The Loadmill Agent enables local execution of test scenarios, allowing you to run tests directly from your computer within your network. This feature simplifies the testing process and makes it more accessible, allowing you to quickly and easily debug tests and obtain results.
The agent is controlled by the play/stop button integrated to the top right corner of the application.
