A JMeter JMX file uploaded to a BlazeMeter test fails validation.
The same test loads with no issues in a local instance of JMeter.
Non-ASCII characters are not found in the JMX file when searching for non-ASCII characters using the following regular expression from the local JMeter search function:
Regular expression used: [\x80-\xFF]
BlazeMeter does not support JMX scripts that contain non-ASCII characters as specified in the File Content Restrictions section of the Uploading Files article.
JMX scripts that contain invalid XML characters ( like � ), which are also non-ASCII characters, will fail validation when uploaded to a BlazeMeter test.
These non-ASCII characters cannot be found using the standard regular expression search utility in JMeter.
Release : SAAS
Component : BLAZEMETER FUNCTIONAL TESTING
Open the JMX file in a text editor, locate and delete all illegal XML characters.
Save the changes.
When the modified JMX file is uploaded to BlazeMeter, it will pass validation after all non-ASCII characters are removed.
