About Session Recording
The following steps outline the general process for recording a script:
1. Set the session recording options.
Recording options tell Robot how to record and generate scripts. You set
recording options to specify:
The type of recording you want to perform, such as API, network, or proxy.
The recording method you choose determines some of the other recording
options you need to set.
Script generation options, such as specifying whether you want the script to
include datapool commands or think time delays, and whether you want to
filter out protocols to control the size of the script.
