  • Hi Srinivas,

     When i try to transfer the Root file to my mobile. My mobile couldnt read the certificate. How to tranfer the Certificate or any other to install root certificate CA file on mobile.

    Thnaks in advance.
  • Hi Srinivasa,

    Even I am facing the same issue, my steps are not getting recorded .It will be great if you help me with the steps to download or save the CA certificate in my mobile which gets generated when you click on start for recording , if that is the issue for not recording my steps.

  • I didn't get any warning message. I have changed Mobile IP configuration and started recording from Jmeter> Workbench> Http(s) Test script recorder. But not a request was recorded in Jmeter. Do I need to have any particular type of application in mobile?

    Hi Prajkta,

    Have you followed all the steps as i mentioned in above?

    If followed what type of warning/error message you are getting?

    please let me know every single message you get, so that i will provide you solution

    Thank you

  • Hi Priyanka,

    Its general warning message and not specific to mobile application. You can remove that warning message by placing ApacheJmeterTemporaryRootCA certificate file bin folder of jmeter. You download ApacheJmeterTemporaryRootCA certificate file from google
