Visualizing Responses

The Apidog Visualizer provides a programmable way to visually represent your request responses. Visualization code added to the Tests for a request will render in the Visualize tab for the response body, alongside the Pretty, Raw, and Preview options.


To visualize your response data, add code to the Pre-request or Tests script for the request. The pm.visualizer.set() method will apply your visualizer code to the data and present it in the Visualize tab when the request runs.

How to Ues

pm.visualizer.set() method

This method accepts 3 parameters.

  1. template is a required parameter, The first parameter is the HTML template string received by Handlebars , which will eventually be rendered under <body>.You can write <link> in template to load external css stylesheets, or use <script> to load third-party libraries.

  2. Select the parameter data to receive an object that is used to replace the template string variable of Handlebars

    const template = `<div>{{name}}</div>`;
    pm.visualizer.set(template, {
    name: 'Apidog'
    // The rendered result is <div>Apidog</div>
  3. The parameter options is optional, which is the same as the options parameter received by the options method. It is used to configure how Handlebars compiles the template string passed in the first parameter.

pm.getData(cb: (err, data) => void)

The parameter received by this method is a function that allows you to get the data of the second parameter you passed in the template string passed in pm.visualizer.set().

  1. error error message

  2. The data passed in by data through the second parameter pm.visualizer.set()

const template = `
pm.getData(function(err, data){
// Do the corresponding operation according to the incoming data in the callback function
// Apidog
pm.visualizer.set(template, {
name: 'Apidog'

⚠️ Be careful! You cannot call Worker and indexedDB in the window object in the template string
