I am trying to test a website using Jmeter. I recorded the script using the blazemeter plugin. While running,it seems that the login is not performed properly. And the all the further scripts fail because of it. I been told to use the Authorization manager, but I am not able to figure out the fields. Kindly help me with these doubts.

What does mean the fields- domain, realm and mechanism in the Authorization Manager of JMeter?

If you have been told to use the HTTP Authorization Manager you should have been told what to put there as well.

HTTP Authorization Manager supports 3 protocol authentication types:

  • Basic - in this case you will not need to put there anything. Mechanism should be BASIC_DIGEST
  • NTLM - in this case you will need to specify your Windows Domain in the "Domain" input, mechanism still BASIC_DIGEST
  • Kerberos - in addition to "Domain" you will need to set your Kerberos Realmin the "Realm" field. In this case mechanism would be KERBEROS, in addition you will need to perform Kerberos-specific configuration in jaas.conf and krb5.conf files.
