Applying different delays based on hostΒΆ

Now let’s apply a delay of 1 second on responses from time.jsontest.com and a delay of 2 seconds on responses from date.jsontest.com.

Run the following to create and export a simulation.

hoverctl start
hoverctl mode capture
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://time.jsontest.com
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://date.jsontest.com
hoverctl export simulation.json
hoverctl stop

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

		"globalActions": {
			"delays": [
				{
				"urlPattern": "time\\.jsontest\\.com",
				"delay": 1000
				},
				{
				"urlPattern": "date\\.jsontest\\.com",
				"delay": 2000
				}
			]
		}

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

hoverctl start
hoverctl import simulation.json
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://time.jsontest.com
curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://date.jsontest.com
hoverctl stop

You should notice a 1 second delay on responses from time.jsontest.com, and a 2 second delay on responses from date.jsontest.com.

Note

You can easily get into a situation where your request URL has multiple matches. In this case, the first successful match wins.
