The Outlook Client Simulation automates user actions and measures the time needed by leveraging the Outlook Client API.

 

Simulation Steps

  • Authentication

Based on the configured authentication type (basic auth, modern auth, adfs, certificate based auth)

 

  • Create Folder

Creates a folder in the Inbox named 'panagenda_outlook_client_sensor'

 

  • Delete Folder

Deletes the folder which was created before

 

  • Create Message and attaches a file

Creates a message, subject 'panagenda_outlook_client_sensor', attaches a file with random content (size specified by config/filesize) names 'panagenda_outlook_sensor.txt'.

 

  • Send the Message

Sends a message to the the owner of the mailbox, subject 'panagenda_outlook_web_sensor'

 

  • Deletes the Message

Delete the message the was previously created in the inbox

 

  • Folder Sync

Send/Receive Mails. This is the equivalent of the UI button "Send/Recieve All Folders" so it heavily depends on how Outlook is configured

 

  • Calendar Freetime Lookup to 1-n users

Does a freetime lookup for all users specified in config/freetime_lookup

 

 

Simulation Results

  • Is authentication fine ? 
  • Are general things such as creating/deleting folder working ?
  • Does creating-, sending- , deleting of an e-mail work ?
  • Does file attaching work ?
  • Does the Calendar Freetime lookup against 1-n users work? --> against Cloud AND/OR on-prem accounts

 

Configuration

Configuration is assigned to multiple Simulation Bots

 

  • whenever you are done, click on Save

 

This new configuration should be now visbile underneath of the Botname (left hand side).
