JMeter and HTTPS
Making HTTPS Requests
JMeter can make HTTPS requests - just create an HTTP Request Sampler, and set the protocol to https (instead of blank).
Problems With Invalid SSL Server Certificates
These should no longer occur; JMeter now ignores all certificate errors such as expiry and incorrect hostname.
Since JMeter 2.4, the JMeter proxy can record HTTPS requests like HTTP requests.
You must accept a special ssl certificat "Apache JMeter" when you record your session.
