Option to view compressed response size


While testing Spring GZIP compression on REST endpoint observed, with or without compression enabled postman response size shows original response size.

Content-encoding still showed as gzip, but the response size in postman is always uncompressed/original response size. This made me wonder is response compressed or not. Only after checking in chrome realised, Postman always shows uncompressed response size.

Wanted to know why postman always shows uncompressed/original response size…? Is there a option to view compressed response size in Postman…? In case there is no existing option, can this feature be considered…?



This would be an awesome feature and is something I definitely miss in the current application.
