Load testing and passing parameter values

Tracey Sangster asked on September 14, 2015 17:41

I am trying to run a load test accessing Media Library files from an authoring page, however, I am running into an issue with passing the hash string and getting the error message for "badhashtext". Has anyone every successfully been able to pass the hash string through there load testing software? Is this even possible?

Hi Tracey, when we were load testing Kentico, we came up with a workaround - you can disable the hash validation by using the web.config key:

<add key="CMSEnableHash" value="false" />

At first, we used the same code for generating hash in the load testing tool, so the hash validation worked, but it was not maintainable enough and we decided to create that workaround instead.

Please note that it's just a workaround and shouldn't be used in the production since it brings a security risk.

Does it work for you for testing purposes?
