- One of the annoying task while making postman calls , is to generate the access token and then copying it and pasting it in every request call.
- One of the easy way to handle this is , by using the postman variables.
- Basically, you can generate a token or any other value and can store it in a postman variable and can use the variable name .
- In this example, i will show how to store a token in a variable, but the environment and variable feature of POSTMAN can be used for many other things as well.
- Click on environment
- Click on Global
- Give any name to the variable and click Save
- Now assuming your response looks something like below
- Click on test tab
- Paste the below code, which parses the response and stores access token in the variable name defined at global level
var data = JSON.parse(responseBody); postman.setGlobalVariable("dev-okta-token", data.access_token);
- Now when you generate a token, it gets stored in the variable and you just need to use the variable name instead of using the response.
Thank You !!!
