This is the most common extractor type. Its value is defined by extracting a string that occurs between two delimiters, Text Before and Text After, in the response.
Creating Text Delimited Extractor
1. In the response window, find the dynamic value you want to extract, such as a token. Use the find box on the toolbar, if necessary.
2. Select the preceding delimiter, and click Set the selected text as Text Before on the toolbar.
3. Select the succeeding delimiter and click Set the selected text as Text After.

4. Click Verify Extractor on the toolbar, and the calculated value will appear in the Extractor Check window. Compared to the expected value, it can be different in the following cases:
5. Turn on HTML Decoding and URL Decoding properties if either encoding was used on the server to generate the response. Example of HTML Decoding is converting ">" to ">". Example of URL Decoding is converting "%3F" to "?".
6. Turn on Escaped Hex Decoding to apply escaped hex decoding to the Extractor value. An example of decoding: '\x23' to '#'. That is used in instances when extracting values from JSON responses.
7. Turn on Use Base64 Encoding to base64 encode a UTF8 extractor value.
8. Turn on decimal encoding to apply decimal HTML encoding to the extractor value. Then specify the number of times over to apply the encoding.
