Answer

Your HTTP requests can be organized to folders so that the HTTP requests can be easily found once you have many of them.

  • Each folder can have Description
  • Each folder can have Pre-request scripts attached - these scripts will be executed before every request in the folder
  • Each folder can have Tests attached - these tests will be executed after every request in the folder
  • Whole folders can be duplicated together with all HTTP requests that are stored in them
