Description Rod Norfor 2014-04-09 14:02:10 UTC
With a script if I have a 'http url re-writing modifier' element to extract a variable, in our case 'sesskey'.

I can run the script via the gui fine.

If I attempt to run via a remote jmeter-server, even on the same machine the script will fail to pass the 'sesskey' with any requests. The sesskey is added as a parameter to the request but the value is not populated.

This seems to be something that was introduced between 2.8 and 2.9,

I have tried the nightly build r1585833 which still seems to have the same issue with remotes.

Please let me know if you require any further information.

Thanks for report.
Could you provide a simple test plan showing issue ?
You could use Java Request populating ResultData with some sample content and using Debug Sampler to show issue.
Thank you

sample test script

This test script works fine in 2.7 (remote and local) but in 2.9 and r1585833
only the local execution works correctly, in 2.8+ when using remote the form_key value is not attached to the post request.

I assume I need to change this back to new... the text doesn't state what I should change the status to 'This bug currently requires additional information before it can be dealt with. If you are providing the requested information, please change the bug status back to .'

Thanks for detailed report.

Your issue has been introduced by the switch from:

As a workaround, you can switch back to it by setting :

But this mode is not great for good performances in distributed mode.

We are working on issue, give us some time.

Also affects __regexFunction
Comment 8 Philippe Mouawad 2018-10-27 14:58:15 UTC
The limitation is documented.
Concerned elements are old and should maybe deprecated.

Closing this as WONTFIX
