Adding Response Assertions

It is often important that we validate the response we receive for every request we had sent to the server.

We can achieve this by adding a response assertion to the sampler.

There are various types of assertions you will have to identify what serves your purpose & work accordingly.

Add a response assertion by right clicking on the sampler > Assertions > Response Assertion - Have a look at the fig1

Now that we have added a response assertion let's have a closer look at the settings & values we are looking for identifying/validating our response.

1.Add a name to teh response assertion so that you know when it fails.

2.Select the radio button Main Sample only - this looks for text you are looking for in the main sampler.

3.Let's select "Text Response" as we are going to validate the same.

4.Pattern of matching - Helps in identifying what operation rules you want to apply a wider search pattern would be "Contains" so that pattern matching ignores the pre & post text & just look for "Pattern String".

5.In Patterns to Test - Click the Add button just below the patterns to test "enter the text you want to validate".

It is that easy ... Adding a response assertion. automationwithselenium.blogspot.com-Google pagerank and Worth
