Start an example Service from a Simulation

Your new account is pre-loaded with an example simulation file.

On the Dashboard page, click the “Add” button.

Leave “Target URL” input blank to start a service that supports only simulate mode.

You can add a label to easily identify your service, for example My test service.

Select the example simulation from the drop down and click “Confirm”.

When status of your service is changed to RUNNING, it is ready to use.

Hoverfly Cloud automatically assign a DNS name for your service (in the format <service-name>-<user-name>.hoverfly.io)

Click on the allocated URL, and you should see the following screen with the HTML data served from the simulation.
