Expanding Parameterized Variables

In FreeStyle projects for Gatling, JMeter, PHP, Python, and NodeJS performance tests, we now offer support for expanding variables from parameterized builds. The parameters can be utilized within the following properties:

  • Test Name
  • Test Description
  • Test Options (such as java options for JMeter and Gatling Tests)
