SoapUI Support

SoapUI support

You can specify existing SoapUI scripts for JMeter executor. The executor will extract specified test case from SoapUI project and convert it to Taurus scenario.


- executor: jmeter
  concurrency: 20
  hold-for: 1m
    script: project.xml  # SoapUI project
    test-case: index  # name of SoapUI test case to use

If your SoapUI project contains only one test case — you can omit the test-case option.

soapui2yaml — Converting Existing SoapUI Project into Taurus YAML

Taurus includes a command-line utility named soapui2yaml that can be used to convert existing SoapUI scripts into Taurus YAML-based configs.

Supported command-line options:

  • -h, --help - show help message and exit
  • -q, --quiet - only errors printed to console
  • -v, --verbose - prints all logging messages to console
  • -j, --json - use json format instead of yaml
  • -o FILE_NAME, --out=FILE_NAME - change output file name, by default is input file name + .yml in current directory
  • -t TEST_CASE, --test-case TEST_CASE - extract single test case by name


  • soapui2yaml project.xml - convert whole SoapUI project
  • soapui2yaml project.xml --test-case SmokeTest -o soapui-smoke-test.yml - extract only one test case

Note that when converting SoapUI project, Taurus uses the following rules:

  1. Each test case is translated to a separate Taurus scenario.
  2. If test case has a load test - it's converted to an execution element.
  3. Only REST and HTTP requests are supported.
  4. The following HTTP request features are supported: HTTP headers, request body, parameters, assertions.
  5. Properties are converted to JMeter variables.
  6. Property transfer is translated to JMeter extractors (XPath and JSONPath).
