This section describes how to create an HTTP request. To record a request using an existing client, refer to the Record a test scenario section.
To create an HTTP request in a User Path
In the User Paths node, right-click on a Container (Transaction, page, etc.) and in the context menu, select Insert after > HTTP Request.
In the HTTP Request screen, you can choose between:
Empty. This will create a GET-type request to an existing server or will create a server if none was defined in the project.
From content. In this case, paste your content that may be retrieved from a third-party tool (for example SoapUI, Postman, Fiddler, etc.). This will create both a request with the methods, the headers and the parameters defined in the content and a server if necessary. Otherwise, it will use the server defined in the pasted content.
Information: The content of the request is evaluated with the default charset of the operating system. If the request contains characters that are not included in that charset, you can specify a specific charset in the HTTP request header: Content-Type: application/text; charset=utf-8.
