How to get the machine name / Computer name from postman?

Is there a way to get the computer name using any predefined variables or any other mechanism in the postman.

My API needs a request header which has the machine name Request header.

Hi abhina,

I am assuming you want to set that variable from the Pre-requests Scripts tab. Unfortunately,
system variables (i.e. computer name) are not visible to Postman scripts by default for security reasons.

If you are using this Newman I would suggest reading up on a work around here >


Thanks John for the quick response. I did read that thread.

I was just hoping may be something new is planned, but i understand the issue.
