API Testing using POSTMAN : Conditional Workflows 1

How To Use  – 

  1. Specify the name of the subsequent request.
    postman.setNextRequest(“Request Name”);
  2. To terminates execution.
    postman.setNextRequest(null);

Some Points – 

  • setNextRequest() is always executed at the end of the current script.
    This means that if you put setNextRequest() before other code blocks, these blocks will still be executed.
  • setNextRequest() has a scope, which is the source of your collection run. This means that if you run a collection, you can jump to any request in the collection (even requests inside folders, using the same syntax). However, if you run a folder, the scope of setNextRequest() is limited to that folder. This means that you can jump to any request within this folder, but not ones that are outside of the folder.
