Description Philippe Mouawad 2017-11-29 18:29:32 UTC
Today when your function requires some context or access to JMeterVariables , the test will fails.

There is room for improvement:

- Have a JMeterVariables in JMeterContext
- Propose 2 text areas (setup/teardown) where some groovy code could be added to setup the context / variables with mock data

The FHD would run the groovy code before the execute and after it.
Comment 1 Philippe Mouawad 2018-09-08 16:19:06 UTC
Implemented in a bit different way:
- We show a new zone to display JMeterVariables that stays available between function calls
- User can reset it on demand
- User can use any function to set additional variables or properties using __groovy or __BeanShell
