Description Philippe Mouawad 2017-11-01 21:53:15 UTC
We often need to do some processing with JSR223 elements without wanting the generation of a SampleResult.

Sampler which return null SampleResult will not impact results CSV/XML, but JSR223 Sampler cannot do that currently as the SampleResult is created before calling custom code.

So what would be the best way to do that:

- Add a method setNoResult(boolean) on SampleResult ? calling this from script code would make JSR223Sampler return null. This seems to be the most performing way
- Throw some custom exception ? But throwing an exception has a cost and it is done for exceptional case, it's not the case here
- Other ideas ?

JSR223 Sampler : There should be a way to make it not impact results

I find this new method really usefull for me !!! 
But I want to use it some time in PostProcessor or Assertion script but it's not possible. 

Are you Ok if I add a new test in JMeterThread to check this property just before send result to listener ?

checkAssertions(pack.getAssertions(), result, threadContext);
if ( !result.isIgnore() ) {
   // Do not send subsamples to listeners which receive the transaction sample
   List<SampleListener> sampleListeners = getSampleListeners(pack, transactionPack, transactionSampler);
   notifyListeners(sampleListeners, result);

Hi Maxime,
Happy you find it useful :-) 

Can you create another bugzilla and discuss this on mailing list before ?

I'd like other brains to ensure I am not missing something.
