Thanks in advance

Good Day @danpaul,
I would love to assist you, I just need additional reproduction steps. What part of the challenge are you on, can you provide some additional details like:

  • Environment Variables if any
  • Your Postman settings
  • The script for the test

That will help all of us better understand what is happening and assist you. Hopefully we can get those tests passing, if you haven’t figured it out already.

Hello,

The part of the challenge I am running is Day: 02 Collections and environments. I have included the test cases I am running below:

// counter for passed tests

let pass = 0

let totalToPass = 5

let collection = pm.response.json().collection

pm.test(“If you have any failures, review the failed test results or ask for support in the community forum. Remember to save your changes if you update the collection. When all of your tests pass, you are done with today’s challenge.”, () => {

pm.expect(true);

pass += 1

});

pm.test(“Status code is 200”, () => {

pm.response.to.have.status(200);

pass += 1

});

pm.test(“Correct collection returned”, () => {

pm.expect(collection.info.name).equals("Day 02: Collections and environments")

pass += 1

})

let folder = collection.item.find(fol => {return fol.name === “Collections and environments”})

pm.test(“Old request updated”, () => {

let oldRequest = folder.item.find(req => {return req.name === "POST raw text"})

pm.expect(oldRequest.name, 'check name').equals("POST raw text")

pm.expect(oldRequest.request.method, 'check method').equals("POST")

pass += 1

})

pm.test(“New request added”, () => {

pm.expect(folder.item.length, 'check number of requests').equals(2)

let newRequest = folder.item.find(req => { return req.name === "GET with query params"})

pm.expect(newRequest.name, 'check name').equals("GET with query params")

pm.expect(newRequest.request.method, 'check method').equals("GET")

pm.expect(newRequest.request.url.query.length, 'check parameters').equals(2)

pass += 1

})

// visualization for test results

let template

if (pass == totalToPass) {

template = `🍪 passing!

} else {

template = `🙅 please try again

}

pm.visualizer.set(template)

I have a environment set up based on the documentation. And that goes for my Postman settings.

Thanks in advance

Hi @danpaul

Are you able to confirm that your collection, folder and requests are named exactly as below (including matching case)? The script expects to find them named exactly as such, and it will be unable to progress with identifying them if the name is different.

Hello,

Please see the enclosed for how I have named the folder and the requests.

Thanks

Hi @danpaul you will need to rename the requests so that they match mine - e.g. the word “POST” and “GET” need to be also part of the request name. (This is something you will need to do carefully on every day - as you have encountered, the tests will fail to run correctly if the requests aren’t named exactly as the challenge specified)

Hello @neilstudd, I have renamed my requests and the test cases are now passing. Thanks for your help with this.

I ran into the same issue. The console helped me locate my error.
