apache JMeter JMeter Plugin Manager Apache Jmeter

Apache JMeter Plugin community, recently launched JMeter Plugins Manager. The actual purpose of this is to easily install / uninstall JMeter plugins using JMeter UI. It automatically adds plugins instead of doing it manually.

By using this you can manage plugins from jmeter-plugins.org, different third-party plugins and core JMeter plugins.

Below are the steps of how to install and use JMeter Plugins Manager

  • Go to http://jmeter-plugins.org/get (by clicking on this URL you can directly download JAR) and download JAR file.
  • Install into X:\apache-jmeter-3.0\lib\ext folder.
  • Now start JMeter.
  • Go to Options (Alt+O)


  • Click on Plugins Manager.
  • Plugins Manager window will be displayed.


Basically, it shows 3 tabs:
  1. Installed plugin
  2. Available Plugins
  3. Upgrades
  • Installed Plugins: It will display all installed plugins in your core JMeter zip setup. 
    Clicking on any of the plugin.
