Track navigation between tabs

The Web Transaction Recorder supports recordings that switch between multiple tabs. For example, you can create a recording that starts on and then click the Company link followed by the Investors link.

As shown here, the Recorded Steps pane displays details about each page as it creates a tab queue in the background. A new option called "Close this tab" appears on the toolbar and a message about the new tab appears.

If you can edit a recording to remove an unnecessary navigation to a tab, WPM removes that tab from the tab queue it created in the background.

Note the following details about tab navigation:

  • TCP waterfall charts do not currently support multi-tab pages.
  • You can only work in a single tab at a time -- the last tab that was opened.
