Congrats! You may now record your activity!
Go back to your window/tab, and start accessing your web app or browse the URLs you want to test. The Recorder should start showing all the captured requests.
Once you’ve done this, press "Pause". Don’t click the "Stop" button on the left panel....yet! This should only be done when you’re 100% finished.
CAUTION: The Proxy Recorder does a rewrite to the packets since it must decipher the incoming and outgoing packets using its own certificate. Thus, this recording solution will not work when the tested application/server has Certificate pinning.
Great! You have your recording. Now you need to decide what to do with it. You have three options:
- Export it as a JMeter .jmx file. Edit if necessary and run your load test.
- Export it as a JSON file. Again, you can edit it before running your test.
- Export it as a URL list to instantly create a URL test. Just export it, go to the BlazeMeter app and start running your test.
- Export it as a "Smart JMX".
Don’t forget to disable the Proxy after running your test. To do this, go back to your Network settings, uncheck the option to turn it off. Click "Apply" to save the changes.
Last, go to your Recorder page, and click the "TERMINATE PROXY" button at the bottom of the left panel.
That’s all folks! If you have any questions, please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
