Applying different delays based on URIΒΆ

Now let’s apply different delays based on location. Run the following to create and export a simulation.

hoverctl start
hoverctl mode capture
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://echo.jsontest.com/a/b
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://echo.jsontest.com/b/c
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://echo.jsontest.com/c/d
hoverctl export simulation.json
hoverctl stop

Edit the simulation.json file so that the "globalActions" property looks like this:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
19
      "globalActions": {
         "delays": [
            {
               "urlPattern": "echo\\.jsontest\\.com\\/a\\/b",
               "httpMethod": "",
               "delay": 2000
            },
            {
               "urlPattern": "echo\\.jsontest\\.com\\/b\\/c",
               "httpMethod": "",
               "delay": 2000
            },
            {
               "urlPattern": "echo\\.jsontest\\.com\\/c\\/d",
               "httpMethod": "",
               "delay": 3000
            }
         ]
      }

Now run the following to import the edited simulation.json file and run the simulation:

hoverctl start
hoverctl import simulation.json
hoverctl mode simulate
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://echo.jsontest.com/a/b
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://echo.jsontest.com/b/c
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://echo.jsontest.com/c/d
hoverctl stop

You should notice a 2 second delay on responses from echo.jsontest.com/a/b and echo.jsontest.com/b/c, and a 3 second delay on the response from echo.jsontest.com/c/d.
