Reviewing the Response Panel

Prerequisites#

  • The request should be sent successfully

Directions#

In the response panel, you can review the following important information regarding your API.

  1. The Body tab in the Response Panel displays the results returned by the server in response to your request. In our case, it will return the Body payload that we sent through the POST API.
  2. The Headers tab beside it shows the details about the response, like content-type, cache-control, server name, date/time of the response, etc.
  3. Additionally, you can check for the cookies in the Cookies tab.
  4. Another important tab is the Timeline tab that describes the timely information of the whole request lifecycle, from request originator to response completion. It is very useful to debug the request at a certain stage of the execution like SSL handshake, PROXY connected, etc.
  5. Apart from this, you can view the detailed network information from the performance tab.
