As a web developer or QA, you need to test various scenarios considering HTTP requests in the web application for uninterrupted user experience. There are certain scenarios which need to be simulated for testing. Requestly helps to simulate various scenarios without actually modifying the code.
- Simulate large response body.
- Simulate empty response body.
- Simulate invalid response body.
- Test your website with unexpected response.
- Test scenarios where HTTP requests fail.
How to use Requestly to modify HTTP responses to simulating testing scenarios?
Creating a modify response rule
- Install the Requestly browser extension and click on New Rule in the Top-Right.
- Select modify response rule.
- Define the URL patterns where to apply this rule.
- Specify the Request parameters to modify. You can modify response body, status code etc.
- You can also target graphQL requests using this rule.
A large static response or invalid response can be returned to check if your website handles it. You can refer to this blog to simulate where we tried simulating 404 error.
