Manual scripting

Run your FrontLine simulations from your CI.

Purpose of this script

This script has the same purpose as the Jenkins, Bamboo or Teamcity plugin. It enables you to launch a FrontLine simulation and display live metrics.

This script doesn’t create a new Gatling FrontLine simulation, you have to create it using the FrontLine Dashboard before.


jq is needed to run this script. It is a JSON processor available for download here.


You need to give 3 parameters to the script:

  • frontLine url: address of your FrontLine, for example:
  • api token: FrontLine API token created with permission All. To fetch the API Token, refer to the section Managing API Tokens in the FrontLine User Guide.
  • simulation id: id of the simulation you want to start. You can get this id on the simulation table, with the icon.
