Issue/Introduction

For debugging reasons the Blazemeter support department may often require the artifacts.zip and admin-artifacts.zip for one or more engines that ran a test. Normally they can easily be downloaded from the logs tab of the Blazemeter report. However in a private cloud environment, only the artifacts.zip is listed and can be downloaded from the GUI. How to get hold of the admin-artifacts.zip?

Environment

Blazemeter SaaS

Resolution

Although the admin-artifacts.zip is not listed in the logs tab, there is a way to retrieve it and make it available to the support department, if asked for. Here is how:

  1. Go to the report and determine the masterID. It is listed in the URL right behind masters/, e.g. for the report https://onprem.blazemeter.net/app/#/accounts/218926/workspaces/215148/projects/276399/masters/33596909/summary the masterID is 33596909
  2. Build a URL from the private cloud host and the masterID: https://<PChost>/api/v4/masters/<masterID>/files   In above example the URL would be https://onprem.blazemeter.net/api/v4/masters/33596909/files
  3. Browse to that URL in Chrome or Firefox. The result lists the location of the admin-artifacts.zip, e.g.

4. Use the "link" to build the URL to download the admin-artifacts.zip from by pasting it behind the <PChost>. In above example it would result in https://onprem.blazemeter.net/api/latest/s3?file=masters/33596909/sessions/r-v4-603e55b012e81/admin-artifacts.zip

5. Once you enter that URL in your browser, it will download the admin-artifacts.zip

Additional Information

A test may run on multiple load generators concurrently. If you or the Support department is interested in the admin-artifacts.zip of a particular session, you may have to scroll in the output of step 3. to get to the right session.
