    Hello all

    Bit of a random one here but does anyone have an idea how I could replicate 200 logons.

    These wouldn't be network accounts as such as I would use a direct link, however I would like to try and have 200 test users, loaded into a course for them to be logged in at the same time so I oculd take an attendance register.

    I know this is not run off the mill stuff but thought I would ask

    Cheers

    They will be logging into a learn management system

    Its for students who use an LMS to submit their coursework etc

    That sounds like they need to log into a web page?
    An easy-ish sort of way to do that is to automate a web browser and make that do it for you. The Selenium web driver can poke Chrome and Firefox etc to open up a session and log into stuff for you. Here's a video of some guy showing how to do exactly that with Powershell you should be able to import-csv and loop through the lines to do it 200 times...

    The LMS might allow machine logins though, in which case you might be able to use invoke-restmethod to open a couple hundred logins without the computational expense of 200 firefox instances.

    Hey Flash

    Halfway through the vid and I am amazed at the stuff he can do, obviously, there will be a bit of trial and error on my side, but that's one hell of a quality vid

    Cheers
