tests which use module controllers to reference libraries

Description Scott 2016-10-17 17:24:21 UTC
I am using JMeter to create many functional tests for our API (1600+). I really wish I could control file size and segregate tests across files by referencing one common library file. We can reuse modules within in a single file using module controllers, but we cannot do so across files.

I'd love to have this setup.

- Contains a thread with simple controllers containing HTTP samplers configured for the various API calls. For instance: CreateAccount, AddUser, etc...

- Contains test threads containing functional tests, which use modules controllers to reference the simple controllers in Libraries.jmx.

Right now they all need to be in one big file that take a long time to open and save.

Test Fragments and Include Controllers don't meet this need. Though if I could dig down into an Include Controller it could.
