30DaysPostmanDeveloper: Day 02 - There was an error in evaluating the test script: TypeError: Cannot read property 'item' of undefined

Getting this error while submitting the Request.

There was an error in evaluating the test script: TypeError: Cannot read property ‘item’ of undefined

Updated the environment properties with collection_uid, postman_api_key

It looks like the request returned a 404 response, given that information, the script wouldn’t complete as it’s looking for something in the response body.

I would check that the URL, path, ids etc are correctly resolved. You can see the full request that was sent by opening the Console.

I agree with Danny - I can replicate this problem if my collection_uid variable is set incorrectly (e.g. if it’s accidentally retaining the collection ID from your Day 1 solution). You mentioned that you’d set this as an environment variable - you won’t want to do this, because every day’s solution requires a different collection_uid value.

I tried everything. I removed the environment variables.
I added directly to the request.
Collection ID is new one. Generated today. Still an error.

Is that the request ID in the URL or the Collection ID - I can’t see the full URL but it looks nearly the same as the one in the right side request context menu. :thinking:

Ensure it’s the Collection ID in the path and than there are no additional characters on the end of the value, sometimes that happens.

Added full screenshot with Request with Collection ID:
No extra or additional characters found in console.

You’re adding the request ID and not the Collection ID.

This has confirmed what Danny suggested :slight_smile: The ID that you have directly added to the request is the Request ID, not the Collection ID. (You will see that in the right-hand panel, the panel is titled “Request details”)

You can find the collection ID by clicking on the “Day 02: Collections and environments” label in the left panel, and then if you click the highlighted “Info” link it will reveal the Collection ID value.

Finally found the details.

I missed to see the heading “Collection Details” / “Request Details”
