Multiple Filters - Useful tip that boost your productivity

Cover Image for Multiple Filters - Useful tip that boost your productivity

This mini-blog would demonstrate how to use the Multiple Filters to quickly filter out your requests/responses.

1. Problem

In certain circumstances, we need to combine multiple criteria to filter exact the request/response.

For instance:

  • Filter all Requests that have "country=us" in the Query, AND contains "id-123" in Request's Header
  • Filter all Response that has 404 Status code and from the domain ""
  • Filter all Response that the Response's Headers contains two keys: "X-Proxyman-ID" and "X-Proxyman-Data"

Even with complex criteria, such as:

  • List all Request/Response that the Status code is 400 OR Status code 500
  • ...

From Proxyman 2.22.0, you can do it with the Multiple Filters feature.

  • All: Includes URL, Query, Status, Method, Headers, and Body
