Automatically parsing raw postdata


I often start with a raw post string like param1=123&param2=456&param3=789, typically sniffed from Chrome’s dev console. I can paste the string in the raw body field, but it is more convenient to work with the data as key - value pairs in x-www-form-urlencoded.

What I do now is that I paste it into the bulk edit field x-www-form-urlencoded and edit the data manually, but I am quite sure there is a shortcut for having Postman parsing the data for me.

If so, how do I do it?


Hi @marlar There’s no shortcut to do this yet. A quick workaround would be to paste the string into the URL, click the Params button to open the keyvalue-editor for the URL parameters, and copy the value from the bulk-edit mode.
