  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The recorded client submits an initial request to which the
    server responds with a 401 response code; the response header
    also contains several Set-Cookie headers.  The client then sends
    a different request, incorporating these Cookies.  When RPT
    generates a test from this exchange, it considers the initial
    request to be part of an incomplete authentication exchange and
    therefore does not include it in the test.  This causes a
    problem at playback because the Set-Cookies are no longer
    received from the server.
    

Local fix

  • The workaround is to enable "Use Legacy Test Generator" in RPT's
    Window->Preferences->Test->Test Generation->HTTP Test Generation
    options.
