Customizing Workloads: Extending the Login VSI and Login PI scripting language
When you want to customize workloads, the workload scripting language for Login VSI and Login PI already contain a lot of common pre-defined variables to help you to do so (a full list of variables can be found in our documentation). But if a situation requires functionality that isn’t available in the existing scripting language, then the workload scripting language can be easily extended with additional functionality. In this blog post I will explain how to do this.
To extend the functionality of the scripting language the following is needed:
- An external script or program that can perform the actions required. In this example I am using an external program that sends text from a specific column in a CSV file to the application that is currently active. Scripts can also be used.
- A basic understanding of scripting and/or the workload scripting language used by Login VSI and Login PI (though this blog focuses on Login VSI).
