During a test case execution, a VU typically issues all requests in a test case iteration before going to the next iteration. In some cases, it may be desirable to stop executing the test case iteration when an error occurs. For example, if an error happened during the login process, then subsequent requests will fail due to failed authentication. Setting the Action on error or timeout property allows you to select desirable behavior in such situations.

Available options:

  • Continue to continue the current iteration (Default).
  • Abort Iteration to stop the current iteration, mark it as failedand start a new one.
  • Abort VU to stop the current iteration, mark it as failed, don't start new iterations by this VU.


The selected behavior will be unconditionally imposed in case of any request error or timeout (not including requests that are marked to ignore error). To apply this behavior selectively, use validators.
