What you'll learn
- How to install Artillery plugins
- How to use plugins in your test definitions
Artillery has support for plugins, which can add functionality and extend its built-in features. Plugins can hook into Artillery's internal APIs and extend its behavior with new capabilities.
Plugins are distributed as normal npm packages which are named with an
artillery-plugin- prefix, e.g.
Plugins can be installed with
yarn in the same way as any other module. If Artillery is installed globally (i.e. with
npm install -g artillery), plugins should be installed globally too:
npm install artillery-plugin-expect
If Artillery is installed locally to a project (i.e. a directory with
package.json in it), plugins should be installed as a normal dependency:
npm install -D artillery-plugin-expect
To use a plugin's functionality when running a test script that makes use of it, the plugin needs to be loaded via
config.plugins in the test script.
For example, to load the functionality provided by
By convention, Artillery will try to load npm package with the name of
artillery-plugin-expect for that configuration.
In this example, we are not providing any configuration for the
expect plugin, but most plugins will allow for some configuration.
