Transaction Controller Issue Script sample

Hi Team,

"Transaction controller" in "Generate Parent Sample" mode placed under "If Controller" not being reported if there is failure in any of requests.

I have to logout if there is any failure in proposed actions during test, for that i have used 2 if controllers to implement the logic. I am able to implement Logout on error but the Failed transaction controller is not being reported in either of listeners. 

I have attached sample script to replicate issue, script has 3 transactions
1. Login
2. Action - I have dummy sampler returning 500 response code fails assertion
3. Logout - I part of main loop and error logic

Login and Logout are being reported but Action is not.

I have found a similar bug from earlier which as lot of similarities. https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=57958

Could you please look into it.

Thanks & Regards,
Karthik S

Minimal test case to reproduce the described behaviour

The original test plan used third party plugins and did more things then necessary to reproduce the behaviour.

I think, the OP could un-check "Evaluate for all children" on the if controller. That would probably help the described use case.

(Even though, there still seems to be a bug or at least weird behaviour exposed by the combination of "evaluate for all children" on the if controller and "generate parent sampler" on the transaction controller")
