How to use JMeter Data Driven in WooCommerce

Updated 31 May 2023

We will study How to use JMeter Data Driven in WooCommerce.

JMeter Data Driven is a testing approach that involves running a single test script multiple times with different sets of data. JMeter, an open-source load testing tool, supports data-driven testing through the use of CSV data files.

Mostly, when an application is tested by a tester manually then different scenarios are performed against different test data. The test data used for manual testing is usually stored in some files like Excel files, CSV files, and text files.

In the CSV Data Set Config element, specify the path to the CSV file and the variable names.

Fields in CSV Data Set Config:

  • Filename: It contains the path of the CSV file with all test data.
  • File encoding: It is used to read the file.
  • Variable Names: List of variable names. The names must be separated by the delimiter character.
  • Ignore First Line: If the first row of the CSV file contains column names, enable this option. Else JMeter considers the first line as the test data.
  • Delimiter: It split the records in the file, the default is “,”.
  • Allow Quoted Data: Set it to True, if there are any double quotes in the CSV data file.

Step 4:

Add Thread Group under Test Plan in JMeter.

Right-click the Test Plan >> Add >> Thread (Users) >> Thread Group.

Add HTTP Request Sampler under Thread Group in JMeter.

Right-click the Thread Group >> Add >> Sampler >> HTTP Request.


After adding HTTP Request, configure the web address like Server Name or IP, Protocol, Port Number, HTTP Request & Path.

Step 6:

Add variables in parameters in HTTP Sampler.

Parameters >> click Add.


In the Value column add the variable name in ${Variable_name} format.
