Hey! , i know that you had thoughts about it before , so am i.
What if i want to move my API collection to JMeter to start a performance test run.
Should i do it manually , or use the JMeter “Test Script Recorder”.
i am here to offer two solution , but in one of them we have to do some setup 🤷🏻♂️.
1. Loadium Application (Online)
Loadium is a load testing tool running all performance test types over open-source tools, such as; JMeter, Gatling, and Selenium. It also provides a tool to testers for converting from Postman to JMeter.
We will use their trial version to convert Postman collection to JMX project as the following.
1- Go to “https://account.loadium.com/uaa/login”
2- Create new account or sign up using “Google” , “Github” or “LinkedIn”
3- Press “Create” as the following screen shot
4- Scroll down to “More Options” and click on “Convert to JMX”
5- Follow the pop-up dialog as the following screen shots
6- Press on “Download JMX”
7- Run Apache JMeter and open the downloaded JMX
We’re going to use the postman2jmx converter on Github , you can find the link below :
you can follow this detailed guide :
We have to install the following :
- HomeBrew (https://brew.sh)
- Maven (https://maven.apache.org)
- Java (https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/downloads/)
1- To install Homebrew , paste the following line in MacOS terminal
(Git should be installed to be able to install Homebrew)
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"
2- Download and install java from Oracle website
3- We are going to install maven using Homebrew , paste the following line in MacOS terminal
brew install maven
4- It is time to clone postman2jmx , paste the following line on the terminal
git clone https://github.com/Loadium/postman2jmx.git
5-we have to build postman2jmx using maven which was installed before to be able to use it , paste the following lines to the terminal.
$ cd postman2jmx $ mvn package
6- when the build is completed you should find postman2jmx in your mac os home folder as the following screen shot
7- Navigate to “target” folder in terminal and let’s convert our first file.
$ cd target/Postman2Jmx
java -jar Postman2Jmx.jar VAmPI.postman_collection.json my_jmx_file2.jmx
8- Conversion process will be as the following screenshot
9- Let’s try to open the converted JMX in Apache JMeter
That’s for today 🙂 , hope you find it useful.
