Scheduling Test Runs

Note: Test schedules require a qualifying plan. Check your plan or contact Sales to get started.

Tests can be scheduled to run on frequencies up to every minute. One or more schedules can be configured per test with each schedule using a unique Test-specific or Shared Environment.

Configuring Schedules

To set a schedule, select one of your API tests and then click Schedule. Every schedule requires an environment and frequency. You can create up to 10 schedules per test (maximum recommendation).

The scheduled test runs will begin immediately after saving your changes. For example, if you choose "Every 15 minutes" and save your changes, a test run will begin immediately and then the scheduled test runs will occur every 15 minutes afterwards.

Schedules only affect the scheduled tests BlazeMeter API Monitoring runs on your behalf. You may initiate as many test runs as you like (up to your plan's request limit) via Trigger URLs or manually in the dashboard.

For custom schedules (for instance, at a specific time), use your preferred scheduler (like cron) along with a Trigger URL.
