I'm using Taurus to execute JMeter test files. In my JMeter files, I need to do a small amount of setup and teardown (for authentication purposes and data seeding). They aren't directly related to the application under test.
Is there anyway to ignore these threads in the output Taurus reports (in terms of contributions to average times etc.)?
I did see a similar question get asked in 2016 here - https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/codename-taurus/jZ9lrfCymFk but doesn't seem like any official resolution was reached.
If it's not possible to ignore these threads, do you have any suggestions on alternative solutions?
