JMeter for Appian is a tool for performance testing Appian using JMeter that provides an easy way to record and replay Appian processes. This utility assumes basic knowledge and usage of JMeter in terms of creating performance plans and analyzing results.

The version of JMeter (4.0) required is no longer working with the latest browsers when recording. Version 5.2.1 will record, but the plugin need updating. I was trying to find the source so I could update it myself, but I can find nothing. How do we proceed?
Thank you Michael, I will look into this between cycles. Thanks for the heads up.
Yes, The certificate in 4.0 I could not get to work until I made the change above, while the 5.2.1 certificate worked regardless. I do not have time to capture traffic for analysis, but this most likely means that 4.0 Responds with TLS3, while 5.2.1 responds with TLS4.

I haven't investigated what it would take to update it to JMeter 5, but it would involve two things:
1. Making sure the plugin framework for SampleCreator(s) is the same
2. Modification to the base code of JMeter 5 to allow the SampleCreator type to be determined by either the ContentType header OR the Accept header (JMeter only uses ContentType out of the box in JMeter 4) - see JMeter change here: https://github.com/appianps/ps-ext-JMeterForAppian/commit/44a72948f316a9fadefdacd8b3f4e6d31caf37ec
Did you encounter this same issue even after installing the JMeter certificate?
Found my own answer, I had to set a TLS fallback in Firefox to 3.
