Subject Re: Recorder: Transaction Control
Date Thu, 23 May 2019 19:43:51 GMT
 Hi Philippe,
Oops, it appears that I still need to work on my communication skills. It is rather opposite
to what I meant.
The number in the beginning are important for me - because, as far as I understand, it is
the only way to ensure that transaction/requests would be ordered properly in all reports/listeners.[of
course, we can create transaction name / prefix with our number - then autonumeration doesn't
matter, but that is some additional efforts]

1) So my actual suggestion for prefixes was to change it 

from prefix_number_url (as in 5.1.1) 
to number_prefix_url
to ensure proper sorting.

2) On transaction name, maybe we should make it consistent with "Apply Naming Policy". If
we want that way of naming for transaction reporting, why not to do it during recording?
So (if we keep numbering in the beginning) transaction would be:
and requests underneath transaction:

[somewhat reversing what I wrote below - while I am not sure that these schema is optimal,
at least it would be consistent with what we want it to be for reporting]

Or the idea to move sequential numbers to the end is to make it consistent with that naming

Sorry for confusion.

Suggestion about number implemented in :

Feel free to test it and give feedback using next nightly build.
