Is there a way to automate the creation and saving of response examples by just running a test collection and saving the responses automatically as examples that can be referenced in documentation? Going through 100+ api requests to save examples is too tedious a job to justify imo. The documentation does not mention this feature, and would like to know if anyone else has gotten this to work before I create an issue on github.
Hi @fatima You should be able to do this using scripts inside Postman. So what you essentially need to do is
- In your test script Parse the response of the request.
- Using Postman APIs update your current collection. You can use pm.sendRequest to make an API call from your test script.
- And because you need to do this for all your requests inside a collection, I would recommend you add this script at the Collection level

Ah, I hadn’t even thought of that. That’s a great idea actually. Thank you so much!
