[SOLVED] Unable to capture Client transaction ID in Jmeter


I am currently working in a insurance creation application. I have been facing a challenge in Capturing the Transaction ID. Below is a recording for example,
Sample Start:2022-01-05 19:42:39 IST
Sample Start:2022-01-05 19:37:10 IST

The above recording shows the clientTransactionId and applicationTransactionId having the first 14 digits as timestamp and the rest as random numbers. I am looking for a function to capture these transaction IDs as I have never faced such challenge before (Combination of Timestamp and Random numbers). Please help.


Just add JSON JMESPath Extractor as a child of the request which returns the above response and configure it like:

  • Names of created variables: anything meaningful, i.e. clientTransactionId
  • JMESPath Expressions: clientTransactionId
  • Match No: 1

enter image description here

Once done you will be able to refer extracted value as ${clientTransactionId} JMeter Variable where required

enter image description here

applicationTransactionId can be handled in exactly the same manner
