JMeter & Azure DevOps Build Release Pipeline

Eric Rubin
Hi team,

I want to incorporate a JMeter script into my Azure Devops Build and Release pipeline. According to these articles https://devblogs.microsoft.com/devops/cloud-based-load-testing-service-eol/ and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/test/load-test/overview?view=azure-devops, the cloud-based load testing service will no longer be available after March 31, 2020.  This includes running a load tests in a CI/CD pipeline using the load testing tasks.

Has anyone successfully implemented an alternative? What was the approach?

From memory the load test service provided by Azure used a really old (3.2)
version of JMeter that was an indication of their priority in maintaining
the service.

In the Azure Devops pipeline, I used a Maven task that incorporated the
JMeter Maven plugin and the Lightning plugin to run a test and generate the
JUnit pass/fail result and that worked quite well.

Forgot to include on the previous reply, but that's my standard advice when
incorporating performance testing into any build pipeline, whether its
Jenkins, Azure Devops, Teamcity, Github Actions, etc.
