Persistent application verification

Howdy loaderio’ers,

We wanted to let you know about a new requirement related to the app verification process.  Starting tomorrow, you’ll be required to keep your app verification code in place in order to perform load tests.  The reason for this is simple, it serves as a valuable security benefit for you, your apps and also loader.io.  While most people typically keep these verification codes in place, some don’t and going forward you’ll need to make sure you do.

Some Q&A:

  • Q: What will happen if I have removed my verification code?
  • A: No worries, running your next load test we’ll find it doesn’t exist and prompt you to re-verify.
  • Q: How long do I need to keep the verification code in place?
  • A: As long as you want to load test the verified app — we check it each time.
  • Q: How do I know which apps are not verified to load test anymore?
  • A: Just run a load test & we’ll perform the check and let you know.
  • Q: Will you check the verification code each time I run a load test?
  • A: Yes.
  • Q: Where will you check for the verification code?
  • A: We’ll check via the method that was used to successfully verify your app in the past.  i.e. if you verified via DNS we’ll check for the verification code in DNS before each test.

If you have questions and/or problems just let us know.  Reach out to us via our “ask us” tab in the app, or send us an email to support [at] loader [dot] io
