What is going away in LoadRunner 2020? (Planned Future Removal)

TruClient Lite (already removed)

TruClient is not a cross-platform protocol unlike DevWeb. But Micro Focus has a chrome extension for TruClient called TruClient Lite where you can download it from the Chrome Web Store. But it is going away soon starting from the version 12.63, eventually it will be removed from the Chrome Web Store.

Micro Focus recommends to start using TruClient standalone version.

TruClient Synchronous APIs

Synchronous APIs in TruClient will be discontinued, instead you need to starting using Generic API Action.

TruClient Connection Measurement

You do not see Connections measurements in TruClient protocol load test results.

Configuring Start/End Transactions

Configuring Start and End transactions will be discontinued, instead you need to start using the End Events.
