Config Element in JMeter allows us to modify the samplers we have added. You can create custom and default variable through Config Element which can modify samplers. The scope of this element is the start of the scope where they are located.
Below is the list of config element JMeter supports.
- CSV Data Set Config

Let’s understand details of some of the config Elements.
CSV Data set Config:
CSV Data set Config read data from CSV file and put this data to a variable. This variable will be used to run the test in JMeter. Below is the screenshot of the CSV Data Set Config Element.
HTTP Cache Manager:
If your application requires Caching functionality should beaded to test, then HTTP Cache Manager should be added. This element should be added in same level or higher than the sampler request . Below is the screenshot of the HTTP Cache Manager Element.
HTTP Cookie Manager:
HTTP Cookies Manager will handle the session. This is achieved by providing the functionality of sending the stored cookies.
This config element will generate random values between certain range.
JDBC Connection Configuration:
JDBC Configuration element can connect from application to database. Here you need the database details to configure in this Config Element. To work with this config element you need to have some basic knowledge on SQL Queries.
Now we have understood the details view of config element in JMeter. IN next section we will discuss on Listener in JMeter
