Description orimarko 2018-06-12 05:42:23 UTC
Counter documentation is wrong in required fields:

Reference name - can be empty will create a JMeter variable with empty string which can be called as ${}

Starting value - can be empty will create a value from 0

Increment - can be empty will increment a value with 0 (no increment)

Should update documentation or add limitation in code

Based on https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50794408/jmeters-counter-without-required-fields

I think the empty name and increment of zero is a bug.

An empty name should probably be handled as a user input error.

The other two fields can be set to a default value. My preference would be start counter with 0 and increment by 1.

The docs should - of course - reflect this.
