How to perform stress test on Nintex Form with JMeter

We have a request that to preform stress test on Nintex Form.

We use JMeter to capture the request between browser and SharePoint.

However, we face a difficulties on capturing Nintex Form with attachment request.

When the Nintex form is filled and attachment is added, clicking the submit button will return back to the form instead of back to the list screen. Clicking back to list, there is no record is added.

However, if the JMeter capture is turned off, everything works fine. 

We also tried to capture Nintex Form without attachment, and success.

Anyone has idea what's going on?

Clicking submit button executes Javascript but JMeter does not execute the Javascript found in HTML pages.

jmeter.apache.org says:

JMeter is not a browser

JMeter is not a browser, it works at protocol level. As far as web-services and remote services are concerned, JMeter looks like a browser (or rather, multiple browsers); however JMeter does not perform all the actions supported by browsers. In particular, JMeter does not execute the Javascript found in HTML pages. Nor does it render the HTML pages as a browser does (it's possible to view the response as HTML etc., but the timings are not included in any samples, and only one sample in one thread is ever displayed at a time).

Yes, JMeter is not a browser, but is a well-known tool to perform performance test/load test/stress test on web server, by submitting HTTP requests to web server.

No matter how the Javascript manipulate the HTML, the web server processes the HTTP request from the browser/JMeter.

The problem we found is the Nintex Form cannot process the submission when there is attachment during JMeter capturing is turned on.
