I tried using CSV config but it didn't work.

If you have a CSV file which looks like

project x
project y
project z
  1. Add a CSV Data Set Config and:

    • provide full or relative path to the CSV file, i.e. projects.csv
    • desired variable name, i.e. project

    enter image description here

  2. Once done you will be able to refer the value from the CSV as ${project} where required, i.e. in the Body Data tab of the HTTP Request sampler

    enter image description here

  3. When you run your test the ${project} JMeter Variable placeholder will be replaced by the next line from the CSV file on each iteration of each virtual user:
