API: Getting Started

BlazeMeter REST API


BlazeMeter is a 100% JMeter-compatible, self-service web load testing cloud. Load tests are easily created and configured online. Once these tests are created, it is possible to run them using the BlazeMeter REST API. This means that instead of manually starting the tests, users simply create an automated script that will automatically run a predefined test via the API.  The API also returns links to the generated reports. These reports are available online or as a downloadable ZIP file.   

Getting Started 

To use BlazeMeter's API simply (sign up to BlazeMeter) create a test and,

  1. Click "Add Test" to create a new test and complete the test configuration. If you are creating a JMeter test, you will need to upload your test script.

  2. After the test has been created, copy and paste the test ID into a document for later use (see screenshot below). This ID will be used as a parameter in the API to identify the test.

  3. Under the profile section, copy and paste the User Key into a document for later use.  This key will be used as a parameter in the API to identify the user.
