What’s New in January 2019?

JMeter logs uploaded throughout test run 


For easier debugging and faster understanding of the issues in the test, we now upload JMeter log files periodically during the test


Compare report now supports two resolutions


You’ve asked for it, and we’ve added support for both 1 sec and 1 min resolutions on the compare report.


Schedule tests directly from the UI


We have now brought the scheduling capability to UI, allowing users to schedule their tests directly & simply from UI. If you need advanced configuration, you can set a cron syntax in under the advanced section.

 


 

What’s New for December 2018?

Control your proxy authentication configuration


The BlazeMeter Proxy Recorder now supports port 80 as well as random ports. iOS users can now use the Proxy Recorder for recordings by choosing the random port option.

 


Debug mode UI upgraded


Now, users will see a blue “Debug Run” stripe in the Original Test Configuration tab.

 


Workspace search UI improved


Now, the workspaces navigation dropdown supports inline search for workspaces. Instead of very long scrolling, users can now search to speed/simplify the effort.

 

Smart Java version selector


The JMeter Properties section in the New Test Create will show users only the java versions that are relevant to their selected JMeter version.


New “Environment” page


The new environment page can be found in the account’s settings section, enabling users to configure a local plugins repository. At the moment, this page will be shown only for accounts with Private Locations and it includes the local JMeter repository configuration.

 

 

Navigate to the executive report directly from results email

 

We’ve added the option to view your executive summary report directly from your report notification email. 

 

Release Date: November 18, 2018

Here is what’s new with the November 18th release:

  • Add a test to a Multi-Test (NTC) that’s already running
  • Improved JMX Converter at converter.blazemeter.com
  • Enhanced TeamCity plugin (version 2.3)

 

Add a test to a Multi-Test (NTC) that’s already running


One of the features long-time BlazeMeter power users love is the ability to add additional load or entirely new test logic to a large test that’s already running. No need to stop, reconfigure and re-launch: Just launch an additional test and join it to the Multi-Test in progress.  This feature is now live in New Test Create (NTC), also known as BlazeMeter “V4”.

 

Read Add Load/Logic Mid-Test in the Knowledge Base article for Multi-Test (NTC) to learn more.

Don’t miss these new features we have recently taken live:

 

  • Chrome Extension: Record JMeter and Selenium Simultaneously
  • Jenkins Plugin: Push Latest Test Files to BlazeMeter
  • Jenkins Plugin: Push Auto-Generated Test Data to BlazeMeter

 

Chrome Extension: Record JMeter and Selenium Simultaneously


BlazeMeter’s Chrome extension now allows you to record both JMeter and Selenium scripts in a single session. You can edit and debug Selenium scripts directly in the browser, run the recorded scripts on BlazeMeter or export scripts in JMeter (JMX) or Taurus YAML formats. It’s the perfect way to create End User Experience Monitoring journeys for real-browser performance during load tests. We have even more Chrome Extension features coming soon!

 

Jenkins Plugin: Push Latest Test Files to BlazeMeter

 

Use BlazeMeter’s Jenkins plugin to automatically update your test scripts before each run from your version control system (Git, GitHub, Bitbucket,...).

 

 

Jenkins Plugin: Push Auto-Generated Test Data to BlazeMeter


Also you can use the same setup (BlazeMeter’s Jenkins plugin and version control system) to dynamically push fresh test data to your BlazeMeter tests. Just generate the data, output it to your source control system or Jenkins workspace and let the updated BlazeMeter Jenkins Plugin push the updated data into your test configuration on each run.
