Facing Issues to read JMeter Request in AppDynamics Data Collector



I am following the below steps and want to correlate JMeter transactions to Appd BT.


1. JMeter simulates end-user activity by launching thread group and by executing HTTP request. AppDynamics retrieves dynamically the name of JMeter HTTP request and stores the metrics in a AppDynamics Business Transaction (BT).
2. Create a custom time range in AppDynamics in relation with the duration of JMeter execution;
3. Retrieve the JMeter Thread name within the AppDynamics snapshot (i.e. capture request details and give visibility to call graph which reflects the code-level view); and diagnose easily why JMeter Thread fails.

I have successfully completed first 2 steps.
For the third step, I have already created a "Custom Match Rules" with Header = Check for parameter existence, name = AppD_Header.
Click on tab "Split Transactions Using Request Data" and set the following values: Check "Split Transactions Using request Data" and Select "Use a header value" in Transaction names and set value = AppD_Header.
Then create a new Data Collectors with Header with the value AppD_ThreadName.

I am not able to see any information in the Appdynamics transaction snapshot after filtration.

Can anyone help me here. My reqirement is to integrate JMeter transactions with AppD Business Transactions.

I too am experiencing the same issue. In fact I prioritized my JMeter rule as well but it didn't show customized transaction names in AppDynamics.




See documentation in attached file to integrate JMeter with AppDynamics (4.5 supported)
