Course Summary

This advanced course is for QA testers who have the recurring need to prepare test data in their test environment — before or after running automated tests.

BlazeMeter helps you manage automated tests and generate test data that drives tests according to your requirements; if you additionally need to satisfy data dependencies in your test environment, this course gets you started with BlazeMeter’s test data orchestration capabilities.

In this course, we will:

  • Introduce the use case, benefits, and requirements of orchestration
  • Demonstrate how to set up and tear down data in your test environment
  • Teach you how to view logs and verify API Requests 
  • Explain how to run automated tests together with their orchestration
  • Show best practices for common usage scenarios


This course is of interest to test automation engineers and software testers who are tasked with test automation and the maintenance of test environments. You will need access to your web app’s API (application programming interface) to automatically create, read, update, and delete data in your test environment.


This advanced course assumes that you are already using BlazeMeter to create GUI Functional tests or Performance tests for your specific use case. Since test data orchestration is integrated with all test types that support test data, we recommend taking the BlazeMeter Test Data Fundamentals course in preparation so you can make the most of the orchestration.
