Answer

Every HTTP request can have the following components. Postman allows you to set them easily:

  • HTTP method (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH, ...)
  • URL
  • Params (Query string parameters)
  • Headers
  • Body
  • Cookies

Except standarad HTTP components, you can also attach:

  • Pre-request scripts - these scripts will be executed before the request is sent
  • Tests - these tests will be executed after the response is received
