Heres how you do it:

There are two main ways to create a load test: Adding a 'URL List' or Adding a 'JMeter Script'.

1. Adding a URL List Test - Our no-scripting test. The easiest and quickest way to setup a test for basic scenarios, i.e load testing a few URLs with delays between the request.

2. Adding A Jmeter Test - The premier testing platform, accompanied by all the features Blazemeter has to offer.
