Requests List

The Requests list in Fiddler Everywhere provides the option to save, modify, execute, and share previously composed requests. The Composer tab enables you to build and send HTTP and HTTPS request manually. When you save a request using the Composer, the request is added to a collection in the Requests list.

Requests list

The Requests list contains one or more collections (root folders) of saved requests (or subfolders). You can also further organize your request in subfolders. To reload or start working on the saved requests, expand a collection, and double click on a selected request.

You can Rename collection, Delete collection, or make a New Folder using the context menu.

Requests Menu

The Requests menu contains three buttons situated to the right of the section title.

  • Use the Create New Request button to open a new Composer tab.
  • Use the Shared Collections icon to list and manage the root request collections (folders).
  • Use the Create New Collection to create a new collection folder at the Requests list's root level.
