Visual Studio Cloud Load Testing & Error codes

 Building a Service/App right the first time is something everyone tries to do. However, sometimes we end up making it too complex or sometimes too simple.  And either can be wrong depending on who your customer is.

Error messages in Cloud Load Testing is one such aspect. What we have today for the Cloud Load Testing service is error messages without associated error codes. Our customers love to talk to us, give feedback on the Service and report issues/bug, which are all great. Given this tendency, our short-sightedness was in deciding to not have error codes for the various error messages in the Service which resulted in cumbersome conversations when they did want to tell/ask us something.

Of course the solution was straightforward. Associating error codes with the error messages was all that was needed.

The complete list of error messages and their codes are listed here. In time it will appear in our support documentation as well. For the most part, the messages themselves are self-explanatory and so the codes are only pivotal to have a good conversation with us. However, there are a few messages that customers seem to look up the most and we have added these directly to our Product FAQ in addition to the listing here.

We hope the conversations with customers become much easier with this.
