Excluding user authentication from a scenario

Hi folks,

I’m trying to profiling (stress testing in the future) various operations in a Web application my company developed. So I was able to record a search operation a user may use after logging into the application, by using converting the HAR generated by Chrome into a Gatling simulation using the recorder. However, the requests for doing user authentication are now part of the scenario, since we’re only interested in profiling those requests for the search operation, I’m wondering if there is way to exclude the user authentication from the scenario, but still running them before the search?
