External libraries can be executed in postman if CDN equivalent of these libraries are available.

You can get CDN in equivalent from websites like: https://cdnjs.com/

Now to use momentTZ in postman, copy the below code into script section and execute it once and then comment out:

This will store the CDN equivalent of momentTZ and momentJS libraries to environment variables.

pm.sendRequest("https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/moment-timezone/0.5.33/moment-timezone-with-data-2012-2022.min.js", (mtzErr, mtzRes) => {pm.sendRequest("https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/moment.js/2.29.1/moment.min.js", (mjsErr, mjsRes) => {//you have to initialize the momentjs to make momenttz work so we are storing both into a variablepm.environment.set("momentjs", mjsRes.text());pm.environment.set("momenttz", mtzRes.text());})})

Now you initiate the libraries in…


Thanks to @webdriverio , i came to know about the chromedriver npm package. It’s a cool library that allows you to detect the installed chrome version and download the compatible chromedriver version automatically


install nodejs >v 10 : install

you can also download just the binary file instead of installing nodejs

now just run the below command

<oath_to_npm>/npm install -g chromedriver --detect_chromedriver_version --scripts-prepend-node-path

you can see the supported command-line flags at :

Note: — scripts-prepend-node-path should be last argument, this flag is mandatory only if you are using node binaries than installation

if you want to download the binary to…

Postman allows you to use CDN libraries in the script session,

so here we are using the CDN equivalent of the handlebar and then passing the compiled template to the postman visualizer

**We can initialize CDN in two ways :**

**First Approach:**

By initializing the CDN in global space using “new Function(cdn)()”

You can see the code below , but this will mess up global scope and can be used only once in the entire run*

// you can call any package with min build in postman
pm.sendRequest("https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/handlebars.js/4.7.7/handlebars.js", (err, res) => {
pm.environment.set("res", res.text());
// intialize the min.js
new Function(pm.environment.get("res"))();
//create template soource
var source =…

its easier than you would expect to create a project collection…

Postman API Feature:

you can create collection , mock servers, documentation in click of a button by using postman API definition feature.

Lets see how to do it!!

  1. Get the API definition:

postman supports following API definitions:

Here we are running scripts from a remote/local Appium server while the devices are connected to another system in the network.


  1. Start adb server in the system in which devices are connected:

Just run the below command in cmd (given adb is available in path)

adb kill-serveradb -a -P 5037 server nodaemon

Appium capabilities:

Now to run appium tests we need to add the below capability:

Try appium inspector from the remote system with below capability (edit all other fields according to your setup except remoteAdbHost,systemport and adbPort)

here remoteadbhost is the remote system which has connected devices, system port is…

There is no inbuilt way to specify a specific iteration row to be executed using Newman, but can be done using Powershell or by using Newman as a library.

The approaches are as below


here we read the actual csv file in the current directory using import csv

Then considers only row 1..2 , if you just want 1 row you can change $a[1..2] to $[1]

$a= Import-Csv .\a.csv
$a[1..2] | Select-Object * | export-csv -Path .\temp.csv -NoTypeInformation
newman run .\test.postman_collection.json -d .\temp.csv

As library:

here we read and split the csv as we want using csv parser and…

This is why proper API documentation and proper status code is important 😀😀😀

Spend half an hour trying to figure out how to delete a #Jenkins #job using “Jenkins remote access API” 😩 😤 😮 😱

You can access all the methods support for an endpoint say for the below job:

First understand BDD:

BDD is not just about testing it is a type of development practice, that avoids the difficulty of providing a definition of “Done”.

https://dannorth.net/introducing-bdd/ the author of BDD style states that:

“Behaviour” is a more useful word than “test”

Now I had a tool — agiledox — to remove the word “test” and a template for each test method name. It suddenly occurred to me that people’s misunderstandings about TDD almost always came back to the word “test”.

That’s not to say that testing isn’t intrinsic to TDD — the resulting set of methods is an effective way of ensuring…

Create a environment variable called “csv” and copy the below content and paste it as value:
