Http Request


The “Http Request node” makes an HTTP request and appends both the Http Request and Http Response to the scope. If an Http Request/Response was already in the scope, it will be overriden.


  • Url: The HTTP request’s URL. Example: This value is templateable e.g. you can use ${root}/api/people/1 if the variable root is defined in the scope.
  • Method: The HTTP method, e.g. GET
  • Body: The request’s body, also sometimes called payload. This value is templateable e.g. assuming your request is sending a JSON body you could send
  • Headers: The request headers. Each row will be a request key/value pair. Both the key and value are templateable e.g. you could have a header with key authorization and value Basic ${basicAuth}.


Every input element in an HTTP request is templateable meaning that you can use the ${variable} syntax to access previously defined elements in the scope. To give an example, you may set the url to ${root}/api/${version}/users/1. When the request is executed the url will be replaced with whatever is in the scope with the key root and version (or fail if the keys are not found).

To give another example, assume that the API is protected with basic authentication, and what you can do is send a header with the value Basic ${basicAuth}.

You can also use the ${value.nested} syntax to access nested elements.
