If I have a script of 6 pages, but 1 page is conditional or is commented out in the script, will the points consumed be same? If the condition passes and the script skips 1 page, will points for only 5 pages be consumed?

Solution

Measurements are calculated based on the initial state. Synthetic Classic calculates points consumed based on the total number of steps in the script, not the total number that are actually run.

In this case, the points are consumed for the 6 pages in the script, even though one page is skipped.

We recommend that before you upload a script to the Synthetic Classic Portal, you delete any steps that you commented out if you determined that those steps aren't needed for testing.
