We’ve released a new version of our load testing plugin for Jenkins CI. See here more details.

Load Testing CI/CD Plugin helps to run load tests automatically as a Post-build action and mark the build as PASSED, UNSTABLE or FAILED based on errors received during the test run and the average response time.

Use the Post build actions and define your load test limits in order to mark the build UNSTABLE or FAILED.

Jenkins Plugin Installation Steps:

  1. Create your load testing account on LoadFocus
  2. Copy your LoadFocus.com API key from https://loadfocus.com/account
  3. Go to Jenkins Dashboard and click go to Manage Jenkins > Manage Plugins > Available
  4. Locate and install LoadFocus Load Test plugin
  5. Go to Manage Jenkins > Manage Credentials and add your LoadFocus.com API key to the stored credentials

Schedule your tests inside Jenkins to monitor failures and application bottlenecks. Choose the load test, and enter both the Error % and Response Time thresholds. Then click Save.
