I am executing the load test plan using the non-GUI mode of Jmeter and I want to set the chrome driver using non-GUI mode. I have used the below command for executing the test plan and storing the results.

jmeter -n -t D:\JmeterSeleniumScripts\LCOrderSummryReport.jmx -l D:\JmeterSeleniumScripts\lcOrderSummaryResults.jtl -f -e -o D:\JmeterSeleniumScripts\dashboard

Can anyone please help me how can I set chrome driver using command prompt.

Define a local JMeter property this way:


In your case it may be :

jmeter -n -t WebDriverSampler.jmx -JChromeDriverPath=c:\soft\webdriver\chromedriver.exe

Read defined properties in JMeter with function _P and use it in "Chrome" tab of jp@gc - Chrome Driver Config:


You can pass and use any parameters this way.

enter image description here

Do not forget to put a default value in case you run the script without passing that JMeter property like:

    So, I have to use like this ${__P(ChromeDriverPath,c:\soft\webdriver\chromedriver.exe)} in path to chrome driver ??
