Periodically when implementing advanced JMeter test scenarios, you may need to build a JMeter Variable from two or more other variables. This short post will look at how to do just that.
Let’s imagine the following situation:
There are 2 JMeter Variables:
- myVar_1 with the value of foo
- myVar_2 with the value of bar
There is also a Counter test element with the reference name of counter.
The objective is to have a dynamic combined variable which consists of:
The solution is using the __V() function which can be used to evaluate composite variables.
The syntax is:
In the case above, the resulting composite variable reference would be:
See how to do this in the image below.
One More Hint
If you build a data-driven test and have parameters in a file that you’re reading by using the__StringFromFile() or __FileToString() functions, and the file has JMeter Variables which need to be substituted with the corresponding values in runtime - you need to use the __eval() function so that the variable value could be resolved.
