Requests List

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

This article describes how to organize and modify existing requests. To learn more about building and sending HTTP and HTTPS requests, see the Composer article.

Requests list

The Requests list is organized in collections. Each collection is a folder on the root level of the Requests list. A collection can contain saved requests and other subfolders. To reload or start working on the saved requests, expand a collection, and double-click a selected request.

You can Rename a collection, Delete a 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 control who has access to the shared collections.
  • Use the Create New Collection to create a new collection folder.

Collection Menu

The Collection menu contains several options to manage your currently selected requests collection (folder):

  • Use the Create New Collection option to create a new collection folder within the selected collection.
  • Use the Manage Shared Collection option to list and manage users with access to the collection.
  • Use the Share Collection option to open the sharing prompt and provide users with shared access rights.
  • Use the Delete option to delete the selected collection completely. This action will also remove the collection for everyone you've shared the collection with.

To share a collection, click the Share icon, then enter the email addresses of the users in the Share Collection window.

Share collection popup

  • You can share a collection only if you are the collection owner.

Delete

The delete option will remove a selected collection or a specific request from the Requests list.

Follow these steps to delete a collection:

  1. Click the delete icon of the folder.
  2. Click Delete in the prompt window to confirm the deletion.
