BI Testing with JMeter

Post by Steve Vincent » Wed Dec 10, 2014 2:56 pm

Has anyone used JMeter to test a BI implementation, and if so can you help point me in the right direction to resolve a login issue?

Code: Select all

servername	FQDN.SYSTEM.NET	specify the server name to attach to
port	80	specify the port to attach to
url	/ibmcognos/cgi-bin/cognosisapi.dll	specify the relative URL to the Cognos entry point
Namespace	active directory	specify the Namespace ID (not the name) of the namespace to use for authentication or leave empty for anonymous
templocation	FS	specify either FS or CM. This must match the setting in Cognos Administration
pwt	3	
swt	30	
OutputLocale	en-us
The username is in the format of USERNAME, rather than FQDN.SYSTEM.NET\USERNAME

The error is

If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.

Hello Steve,
in my case changing ASSERT(LoginSuccess) patterns to test to uppercase version worked (Set-Cookie: cam_passport).
I know you posted this few months ago, anyway I'm glad I could finally post an answer, not a question :)
