Service Virtualization Locking

When your performance test contains virtualized services, those services are automatically locked and cannot be used by other users while the test is running. Virtualized services may be locked by you or other users for editing, simulation, deployment.

  • If your test includes a service that has been locked by another user, start run will fail and an error message will appear in the ALM Test Runs module's event log for the specific run.
  • If your test is running and you update the test to include a service that has been locked by another user, the test will continuing running, however an error message will appear in the Online Screen's Messages tab as an error. There will also be an error notification in the Summary.
