Recommended Next Courses

BlazeMeter consists of five main product pillars - Performance Testing, Functional Testing, API Monitoring, Mock Services, and Test Data. To learn more about the other pillars, consider the following courses that are available on BlazeU:

BlazeMeter Scriptless Testing: Fundamentals
The focus of this course is on the Scriptless Testing features of BlazeMeter, designed to author automated GUI Functional Tests, all without knowing the underlying Selenium scripting language used behind the scenes to define and execute the tests. In this course, we will tour the BlazeMeter platform features used to store tests and reports, record tests with the BlazeMeter Chrome Extension, edit tests in the Scriptless Editor, and much more. 

Master BlazeMeter API Monitoring
BlazeMeter's API Monitoring allows you to test all of your API endpoints continuously, and monitor your APIs and services in real time, without any dependency on additional teams. In this course, we'll walk you through everything there is to know about BlazeMeter API Monitoring, end to end. We will introduce the app and orientation around it, show how to monitor your APIs with precision, demonstrate how to collaborate with your team within a bucket, and provide the best practices around configuring tests and automating them.

Introduction to BlazeMeter Mock Services
The BlazeMeter Mock Services feature lets you dynamically create mock services that remove constraints and dependencies by standing in for external or internal resources that may not be readily available. The Introduction to Mock Services course teaches you how to leverage mock services in BlazeMeter to eliminate dependencies and constraints and to enable continuous shift left testing. We will describe the concepts behind mock services and key use cases, demonstrate how to import and build a shared repository of transactions, explain the best practices for creating and deploying mock services, and guide you as you create and deploy your own mock service through interactive exercises.
