In our Jira multi-node DataCenter we have several very complex scripted fields that are almost constantly updating custom field values across our instances. A recent code update to one of the scripted fields seems to have caused some issues in our instance, so we're looking to improve our testing process of these code updates in our sandbox.
One thing we really want to improve in the scripted field code update testing is to simulate user traffic on our sandbox instance. Our production instance is used by internal and external users alike, and used fairly heavily (we're a 2000 user instance w/ 500 SD agents)
Does anyone have any suggestions on how we could best simulate user traffic on our sandbox environments?
One idea I had was to put together a few scripts on various servers that would run API calls over to the sandbox. We would supply them with a set of projects, custom fields, and custom field values to set, and have them run through the sets randomly to generate tickets. But I'm hoping that maybe someone else has a better idea.
Thank you for your time!
Dear @Jordan McCombs ,
you could use Jmeter and fire REST API calls. But in this case, the server has to "ship" less data to the client due to missing UI elements. Much more complicated but closer to human interaction is Selenium.
Just my 50ct
