  • @Avatar, If you're talking about the message shown in the picture at sqa.stackexchange.com/q/15533/11978 , then it isn't an error. It's just notifying you that the certs have been created in the bin folder.

If you're talking about this dialog on start of JMeter's proxy:

JMeter proxy

It is not an error at all. It is about self-signed certificate which is required when you record HTTPS traffic.

If you recording plain HTTP - you can simply ignore this information box.

If you record HTTPS/SSL - you'll need to take an extra step to install ApacheJMeterTemporaryRootCA.crt file (it's being generated in bin folder of your JMeter installation) into your browser.

See Recording HTTPS Traffic with JMeter's Proxy Server guide for more detailed explanation and some troubleshooting tips.
