I am trying to access the table row data which is under the table body.

Following is my HTML:

    <div class="panel panel-default" id="confirmationNotificationPanel">
                <div class="panel-heading">
                    <h3 class="panel-title pull-left">Patient Confirmation Notifications</h3>
                    <button type="button" class="btn btn-success btn-xs pull-right" onclick="createConfirmationNotification()"><i class="fa fa-plus-circle"></i> Add New</button>
                    <div class="clearfix"></div>
                <div class="table-responsive">
                    <table class="table table-striped table-bordered table-hover">
                        <tbody id="confirmationNotificationTableBody">
        **<tr id="confirmationNotification49" data-id="49">**
            <td style="width: 180px;">
                <select id="confirmationNotificationSource49" class="form-control" style="display: inline-block;">
                    <option value="CALL">CALL</option>
                    <option value="SMS">SMS</option>
                    <option value="EMAIL">EMAIL</option>
                    <option value="APP">APP/SMS</option>
                    <option value="WHATSAPP">WHATSAPP/SMS</option>

I only want to get the data-id value of the table row. I am using the CSS Extractor but not able to access that data-id value. I also tried with other extractors but not able to access the same.

Depending on what you're trying to achieve the approaches will differ.

An example setup of the CSS Selector Extractor which will return data-id attribute for tr tag having id of confirmationNotificationSource49 will be something like:

  • Selector: tr[id=confirmationNotification49]
  • Attribute: data-id

Demo (assumes "CSS Selector Tester" mode of the View Results Tree listener):

  • Thanks, @Dmitri T but the id value is dynamic. I mean to say is that If I delete this id and create a new record, in that case, the value of it will be different. How to access that id dynamically?

  • If only 49 is dynamic you can amend the expression to look for row ids which start with confirmationNotification, in this case the Selector would be tr[id^=confirmationNotification]

  • It is not working showing match count 0.

  • I cannot help without seeing how you configured JMeter, for me it works fine, I used Dummy Sampler to respond with the data you provided and the View Results Tree listener to visualize the result of the CSS selector
