The main Scenario Editor interface consists of the menubar, toolbar, scenario list, dialog list, message flows, and status panel, as follows:

Includes these menus:

  • File — operations such as adding, saving, and printing scenarios

  • Edit — operations such as adding new roles, dialogs, messages, and editing scenario properties

  • Tools — tools such as the Schema Browser and Alias Browser

  • Plugins — plugins supplied by OpenCloud to provide additional formats for scenario creation and export.

  • Help — documentation, build information, and sample scenarios.



Buttons for the same functions as the Edit menu.

Can be undocked from the main interface.


Scenario list

Tabs listing open scenarios.


Dialog list

The first part of the Call Flow Editor, a list of dialogs in the loaded scenario (this example shows one called SSP-SCP which uses the INAP protocol).


Message flows

The second part of the Call Flow Editor, for the loaded scenario, shows:

  • roles — named boxes (in this example, SSP-Loadgen and SCP-Rhino)

  • messages — named arrows between the roles (direction indicates direction sent).

Tip Click to select components, double-click to edit, drag to re-arrange, or press Delete to delete — see Editing Scenarios.

The currently selected messages are highlighted with a blue border.


Status panel

Shows any problems with the currently edited scenario (in this example the scenario has none).

Errors are marked in red, and warnings are marked in brown.

A scenario with errors cannot be simulated, while a scenario with only warnings can still be simulated.
