Request parameters

Parameter definition is used to define, in particular, the request dynamic parameters. Each parameter in the definition must be present in the link to be extracted. NeoLoad will be able to use a link that contains additional parameters to those present in the definition.

Editing a parameter name or value is done in a dedicated window. Double-click on a name or value in the parameters table to open the window.

When extracting a link, you may automatically create NeoLoad variables containing the parameter values when the link is executed. This allows extracting the dynamic part of the link and using it in subsequent requests. If, for example, the application frequently uses the same dynamic parameter, you may define a Link Extractor at the parameter first use and use the variable in all the other requests that use that same parameter. This avoids multiplying searches in the server response pages and results in better performance.

Parameter name

The name may contain plain text or a NeoLoad variable. When the Encode name box is checked, the specified name is encoded in MIME application/x-www-form-urlencoded format before being submitted (e.g. spaces are encoded as %20). Clear the check box if the name is already encoded.

Parameter value

Three options are available for the parameter value:
