Subject Re: Scripting a new-user signup

Apparently, my mail program encoded the addresses, below and the mailing list filter displayed
the link inline. I have cleared the issue, below.

Counter is referenced as “usercounter” starting at 101, incrementing by 1. The username
I am posting is:

registration[email] jmeter${usercounter}

I am 75% sure that this will do what I want, with each thread using an incrementing number
for its run (the first will sign-up a user named “” and the 10th
will sign-up a user named “” )

and I need to be able to extract that data from the page source so that I can pass it back
through the thread’s POST. At this point, I am LOST! Where do I find this in the recorded
transactions? It was obviously extracted, since the POST that I sent back in the first test
included the pair:

that I can get this unique number? The enrollment fails without it and I can’t even test
if my ${usercounter} works, either, since I can’t see the registration pass with the missing
enrollment_id. The registration for the first user, the one created during the recording,
worked great, since my browser handed back the correct number (that time the number was 2214)
