Lets say i have 5 requests in collection and i wanted to skip 2 requests while running.How do i do that?
You could use
postman. setNextRequest('request_name') in the last request you want to run, to jump over the ones you want to skip.
As Danny said, use
postman.setNextRequest("request_name") to skip or jump to a certain request.
Bear in mind, if you have multiple requests with the same name Postman will jump to the last match.
Also be mindful of using this command during a collection run and if you have any requests with the same name in sub-folders etc.
I have to have request ‘A’ as 1st request, which is different compare to rest of the request. I need to skip the 1st request ‘A’ from collection level test script. Otherwise it will fail the and not run the remaining test.
- PUT request (set some thing for givin user, and needs to be skip from collection level Test script)
2,3,4 … remaining are GET request (collection level Test script validate the json response).
Rule is 1st PUT request has to be send 1st.
I don’t believe you can skip the first request. A workaround to that is adding a dummy request ahead of what your first request is now. It can point to a URL like
https://postman-echo.com/get which will just echo the request in the response. In the pre-request script for the dummy request, you can set
