The Load Impact CLI

Posted by Grant Engle on Mar 22, 2016

tl;dr — We’ve released the beta version of the Load Impact CLI, which is focused on manipulating user scenarios.

  • Users can create, update, save, delete and validate user scenarios from the command line
  • A group of users asked for this, and you can ask for stuff, too. Our Support team is always taking suggestions
  • This is just the first iteration (of course), so your input is valuable and very welcome. Contact us on Twitter or LinkedIn


We like to think we do a good job of listening to our users when it comes to the functionality of and usability of our app.

So, we’re pleased to announce the beta version of the Load Impact CLI — meant to make your life easier when it comes to working with user scenarios.

Load Impact users can now use their code editor of choice and the command line to create, update, save, delete and validate user scenarios.

The Load Impact CLI was designed to make performance testing fit better in your development process, and that means testing can be done faster and more often.

How to get it

You can find the Load Impact CLI source code in this Github repo. You’ll also need a Version 3 API Token, which you can find under your profile settings in our app.

And from there, say hello to an even more convenient way to manipulate user scenarios with Load Impact.
