I'm using Postman to automate an API using Newman.

But the response body of the API call is not showing in the Postman "Test results" tab.

var body = JSON.parse(responseBody); 
tests["Response Body ", body] = true; 

I have tried the above code,but even after successful API call the response is not printing in the "Test results" tab.

The output of above is showing as,
PASS [object Object]

Any suggestions to print the API response will be of great help. Thanks in advance!

Please try without parsing, Like below

var body = JSON.parse(responseBody); 
var content = responseBody;
tests["Response Body"+content]= body.length != 0

Rather than reinvent the wheel, if you're implementing that then there is a lovely graphical HTML report you can tag onto newman that just does all that for you (newman-reporter-htmlextra).

It auto records the headers / body / etc of the requests and responses. It also helps with providing a "management" friendly colourful report of the results.

You just need to install it into Node.js then add on a switch in the newman call.


newman run myFile.json -e environment.json --reporters htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-export reportfilelocation.htm
