You can call the POST request to send user name and password to the server as shown in this tutorial.

1. Start JMeter on your computer and open "\fyicenter\Facebook-Login-Test-5.jmx".

2. Add another HTTP Request sampler to "Login Test Case" with these settings:

Name: POST Login & Password
Protocol: https
Server Name: www.facebook.com
Method: POST 
Path: /login.php
Paramters: 
   Name: email / Value: joe@facebook.com
   Name: password / Value: NoOneKnows

3. Add a View Result Tree to above sampler.

4. Save the test plan as "\fyicenter\Facebook-Login-Test-6.jmx" and run it.

6. Click "View Result Tree" under "POST Login & Password". You see the "POST Login & Password" test sampler executed ok.

7. View the "POST Login & Password" response data in a Web browser, you see an error on the returning page: "Cookies Required".
