Real User Tests

This article includes instructions for creating, modifying, and deleting real user tests, as well as reference information for the various configurable settings.
Real user tests get automatically deployed when the user visits a website in the monitored domain set.
A monitored domain set consists of domains that you want to gather end-user performance metrics about. The best practice is to use business-relevant domains for tools and sites that your end users access.
