Blaze Meter provides a plugin which can be integrated into our Jenkins platform for doing a Automated testing as a part of CI/CD Pipeline. Follow the steps below to install Blazemeter plugin and configuring that

1.Install the Blazemeter plugin from “Jenkins -> Manage Plugins”.

2. Configure the Blaze Meter cloud location in “Jenkins -> Configure System” as
3. We need to create a Credential to connect to the Blaze Meter cloud as

Copy the Key and paste that in the API Key Section of the above credential box. Click on the Test BlazeMeter API key to verify.

Note – Some how the new keys generated are not working when we verify from Jenkins. Use the legacy key.

Save once the verification is done.

4. Now create a Job and in the “Add Build Item” , select Blaze Meter. In the configuration of Blaze Meter , select the API key which will display all the Blaze Meter tests available.

We can save the JTL and Junit Reports to a location for further processing.
