Post-Macro extracting parameter from last response

Gabriel Caudrelier Apr 10, 2017 04:26PM UTC


I am trying to run a request with a macro and post-macro to do this:

req1 / resp1 => extract param from rep1
get param from from last macro's response
req / response
extract param from last response (before post-macro run), and use it in req2
req2 / resp2

currently it only works before the post-macro run, the post-macro is not capable of getting parameters from the last response (unless I have missed something)

I did check in "sessions tracer", and there is no update of parameter starting with post-macro.

Correct, the post-request macro isn’t able to derive parameters from responses that have occurred during prior session handling actions.
