Using this plug-in JMeter provides an easy way record and replay Appian processes.
JMeter for Appian accomplishes this by hooking into JMeter's Test Script Recorder mechanism. It alters the behavior of most HTTP requests so that additional logic runs when the test is recorded. This logic extracts the standard dynamic values that are passed back and forth when a user interacts with Appian.
This JMeter plug-in will add post processing to Appian requests/responses to:
The plug-in does not attempt to parameterize end user entered data. This could however be added to the generated test script.
I am facing issues with Jmeter 5.4, the dynamic variables it creates based on the payloads do not necessarily resolve to a value at run time.
No, it doesn't work with 5.3 as well, already tried it! It's probably due to how 20.4 version of appian works in conjuction with browser.
The ApacheJMeter_http.jar that was altered to hook in the Appian logic was built against Jmeter 5.3, I would recommend using that version. Not sure that is the root cause of you issue, but it could be.
