REST Request - Add data to body of Request

Hi there,

I'm trying to setup a REST Request Test Case for a POST endpoint where I'm sending json body of the Http Request. Looking at the documentation for REST parameter types, (, I don't see a type that corresponds to the body of the request. Am I missing something? It seems like a fairly common usecase but I'm not quite sure how to set up the Request or the Data source to fit that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm a dev that came across this tool looking for a way to make it easier/faster to do testing on my endpoints.

Once you have set the request type to post, click on the request tab.  There should be a panel at the bottom with the header media type.  You should then see 'application/json' in the dropdown.  Select that and past your json into the empty panel below...

sending the REST request body is pretty straightforward, though sometimes not easy to find for the first time.


Check the REST request documentation; see Specify request body paragraph.
