Now you can run real browsers during your performance tests to get End User Experience metrics. Watch the animation below or jump right to the Knowledge Base topic on End User Experience Monitoring.
To make way for exciting new reporting controls we will be adding soon, we have moved the actions menu and restyled the tabs in reports:
Private Location status now shows who launched a test rather than who created it, so it’s easier to see who is using resources.
You can now choose which location you want to launch the Proxy Recorder from:
Need a plugin to make your API Functional test happen? Now you can upload plugin JARs just as you’ve always been able to with performance tests. Here’s our shiny new Mainframe RTE Protocol plugin in an API Functional Test configuration:
As of this release, we have deprecated JMeter engines with versions below 2.13. Any scripts that were created in earlier versions of JMeter will now be executed with 2.13.
Now when you zoom the Timeline Report graph, the sliders in Request Stats and Errors will follow the same selection. The reverse works as well: Moving the sliders will re-zoom the Timeline Report.
The online Recorder now uses a static port number (8153), so there’s no need to whitelist a long range of ports in order to use it. We'll be changing it to port 80 soon to make it even easier. If you are new to the Recorder, have a look at BlazeMeter Proxy Recorder (Mobile and web) or just click the “Recorder” button on the Create Test screen to get started:
Now you can run tests on Azure (26 locations) from within the New Test Create (NTC) Beta.
We have deprecated our V2 API and have pointed “latest” to our V4 API. This change was announced via email to all users of the V2 API in April.
Do you love the ease and speed of our URL/API test feature, but wish for advanced features like assertions, variable extraction and file uploads in request bodies? Wait no longer! Most of the request editing features from our API Functional Testing UI have been added to the New Test Create (NTC) Beta. Watch the 30-second video below and read the docs for API Functional Testing to learn the finer points on variable re-use and such.
New Relic may have shut-down the “Servers” feature in New Relic APM, but we’ve got you covered with our new integration to New Relic Infrastructure. Overlay New Relic Infrastructure data on Timeline Reports for all test types to see what’s up on the back end. To get started, you’ll need a “Query key” set up in your New Relic Insights account. Full details in our Knowledge Base.
By popular demand, test configurations now have a “description” field, where you can document the scope or purpose of your test. No more “LongTestNameTryingToTellTheWholeStory” required!
This feature is available in JMeter Test (new), Taurus and API Functional Test flows.
We’ve listened to feedback from our single sign-on (SSO) customers who wanted greater control over new user accounts and no more “pile up” of new users in the default workspace.
Our integration with Dynatrace is now bi-directional! You’ve always been able to send “red dye” (decorated headers) outbound to make test traffic easy to see in Dynatrace and now you can pull Dynatrace metrics inbound to visualize in Timeline Graphs. This is also the debut of Dynatrace support in our new test create (NTC) screens. We’ve made this new functionality available in both our legacy and new test create (NTC) screens.
Our new API Functional Test feature continues to evolve at a fast pace. This sprint we’ve enhanced the new Import swagger file feature:
Look for “Import swagger file” in the (...) menu at the bottom of the Scenario list box:
Have a look at API Functional Test. Since our public release last sprint, we’ve been very busy:
We will deprecate JMeter versions <2.13 on April 29th. When we do, we’ll switch to executing these older scripts with the 2.13 engine.
Usage reports now include an “Execution Client Id” column so you can see at a glance whether test was run from UI, API, Taurus, Jenkins, etc...
Jump to detailed BlazeMeter reports right from your Bamboo build dashboard with the new BlazeMeter Test Report tab.
