Feeders in before block

Can feeders be used in the before block?

I haven’t seen an example. If it can be used, can I request for a sample?

From documentation: https://gatling.io/docs/current/general/simulation_structure/#hooks

You won’t be able to use Gatling DSL in there, as it’s only intended for load test. You can only use your own code. If you’re looking for executing Gatling DSL, you might consider using sequential scenarios.
