Another alternative is a set-up script to load in the user specific variables as properties,
that can then referenced based on userID later down the line.


then in your script reference it based on userId (or however you pass in the ID of your user)
such as


Where userId is user1, user2, etc.

This means any thread can use any userId and will always use the correct data for that userId.

Hi Andrew,

May not be suitable depending on the rest of your scenario, but - what about putting all the
input data needed by a given user in the same row of the CSV file?  That is, one row per user?

Subject: Login-specific test data

 Hi list,

I have a scenario where we authenticate a user into an application, however each user has
visibility only to a subset of total data, so providing input data for entities needs to be
tied to the user login somehow.

As an analogy, user logging in as a "department manager" would only have visibility on the
"employees" in his section.

I thought about something similar to this: https://stackoverflow.
users-from-csv-file-in-jmeter - but that is tied to a login's place in the input file, which
isn't necessarily guaranteed.

Another option I considered might be having a hashmap of data keyed by the username it pertains
to. So, for example, 1 user login key might have the value in the hashmap of an array list,
which can be randomly selected from on each iteration.

This starts to get a little complicated, so before I start, I wondered has anyone else had
a similar use case? Curious to see other thoughts/strategies behind solving it.
