A query retrieves a part of an HTTP response.


Each query begins with a keyword. Here is a table of all supported keywords and their functions.

bodyThe raw HTTP response body, expressed as a string
durationThe HTTP execution duration in milliseconds
headerThe value of an HTTP response header
cookieThe value of an HTTP response cookie
jsonpathThe result of a jsonpath expression
statusThe numeric HTTP response status code


Some queries (such as header and jsonpath) also require a filter. The filter appears after the query keyword and is separated from the keyword by a space. For example, to query the Content-Type header, use the query: header Content-Type.
