I have been attempting to use flows recently and the ability to generate a web hook immediately that triggers a series of task is great, but the inability to run any scripts is a hammer to the knee of its abilities. Is there any expectation that this function will be added to flows and if so, what does that time line look like.
Tests and pre-request scripts will run on requests in flows. However, there are certain things that are not supported, such as updating environment/collection variables.
What tests/scripts have you been trying to run that aren’t working?
I was initially trying to run a hash for an authorization request, but I was unable to move the hash that was generated in the pre-request script, because you can’t update environmental variables. As an alternative, I was attempting to run a postman echo request that would return the hash, but every time I run the flow, the pre-script request doesn’t seem to run. Where there should be a JSON object, it’s null.
Thanks for the additional context. We are working on a better way of achieving things like this.
I believe what you are trying to do with postman echo api is achievable using the GET method and url variable instead:
