Subject urlencode with variables loaded from csv
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2014 01:43:20 GMT
Hi folks,

Can someone please explain to me how JMeter handles variables loaded from
CSV, as opposed to handling user-defined variables? I was under the
impression that ${__urlencode(${csv_variable})} would produce the same
output as ${__urlencode(${user_defined_variable})}, but it appears this is
not the case.

A minimal test case is available at In that test
plan, the CSV data are declared before any of the thread groups, and
urlencode is called within each thread group.

In such a case, wouldn't the CSV variables (defined before the thread
groups in the test plan) be loaded before the user-defined variables
(defined within the thread groups)?
