It seems JMeter doesn't support PAC files. Try an alternative recording solution i.e. JMeter Chrome Extension


I did a Google search for "JMeter automatic proxy". The first search result said this:

PAC fiels[sic] contain javascript which is executed by the browser to decide which proxy URL they want to use. JMeter is not a browser so it does not run this code. The solution is simply to resolve which proxy this script returns and input this value into JMeter directly, you can do this using the dev tools on most browsers, or just ask the IT dept. that maintains the thing to tell you the direct address.
