Requests List

The Fiddler Everywhere client provides the option to save and share the composed requests. Previously, we discussed on the Composer feature which enables you to manually build and send HTTP, HTTPs and FTP requests. When you save a request using the Composer, the request is added to the collection of requests in the Requests list.

The Requests list looks like as shown in the image below:

Requests list

The Requests list contains one or more collection (folders) of saved requests. In the above image, two different requests have been saved to two different folders. To reload or start working on the saved requests, simply expand a collection and double click on a selected request.

You can Rename or Delete the collections using the context menu.

Requests Menu

The Fiddler Everywhere requests menu contains list of options which can be executed to share or create new collection. You can also create a new Request using the Create New Request button. Refer to the image below:

Requests Shared & New Collection

When you save a Composer Request, they automatically get appended to the Requests list. In the list each Requests has some options to be executed. Refer to the image below:

Requests Shared & Delete Tab

Manage Requests Tab

The Requests tab contains the folders containing the composer requests. You can create as many folders and requests as you want. Every folder created under the Requests tab can have more than one requests.

Requests Tab with Folder Structure

As the composer allows you to compose requests and test those requests, the folders under requests help in differentiating different types of requests. It comes in handy when you want to share the request with a teammate or someone you are working with.

If you are using a Pro version of the Fiddler Everywhere, you can share n number of requests with anyone.

Share

To share the requests folder click on the Share icon to prompt a window where you must mention the email ids of the users you want to share with.

The sharing window looks like as shown below:

Share Request Popup

This feature is only available if you own the session.

Delete

The delete option will remove the folder or the composer request from the Requests tab. You can either delete an individual request or the entire folder which contains more than one requests.

To delete the requests folder:

  • Click on the delete icon of the folder.
  • Clicking the icon will prompt a window where the application asks for the final call of deleting the Requests folder.
  • Click Delete.

The prompt window looks like as shown below:
