A way to create custom test snippets

There was a post about creating custom test snippets and I thought it would be worth sharing my idea here too…

So Postman has a list of snippets for common tests that can be added with a simple ‘click of a button’.

But the ability to make your own snippets means that you could ensure naming conventions remain the same throughout scripting and also potentially provides a reduction in the amount of time spent creating tests (amongst other benefits).


My idea:

So if you create a global variable and set the value to be your pm.test snippet like this;

You could then use eval() to run like so;

(I’m new to JS so there may be a better way to do this… but it seems to work).
