Start a virtual service from an example simulation

You can start your first virtual service with a pre-loaded example simulation file by following these steps:

  1. On your Dashboard, click the "Add" button. An "Add service" dialog box will pop up.

  2. Enter a service name, for example my-test-service.

  3. Select example-simulation from the drop down and click "Confirm".

Hoverfly Cloud provisions a dedicated Hoverfly container and assigns a DNS name for your service (in the form of <service-name>-<id>.hoverfly.io). The service is ready to use when the green tick-mark appears next to the service in the dashboard.

Click on the allocated URL, and you should see the following screen.

Congratulations! You have now got a highly configurable virtual service that you can share and use wherever you want.
