Unable to monitor a transaction that opens a new window

Overview

This article provides brief information on WPM not supporting monitoring transactions that open a new window.  In some cases the WPM Recorder may crash when attempting to navigate between new windows that have opened.  

 

WPM is currently designed to monitor transactions occurring within a single window.  

Environment

WPM version 2.2.1 or earlier

Detail

There are three ways to avoid this issue: 

  • Adjust the transaction to monitor only the steps before a new window is opened.  
  • Record the actions using direct URLs in the URL field in the Recorder, only using URLs which don't open new windows. Depending on the site this may not be possible.
  • If you own the website, you may be able to re-design the page so the actions you need to monitor can be completed within the same window.
