CLion 2021.2 Help

HTTP Client reference

The client object holds the HTTP Client session metadata, such as the list of global variables. The HTTP Client session is started when CLion starts, and ends when CLion is closed. Values are not preserved between CLion restarts.

The client provides access to the global nested object that serves as a variables storage.


global (Variables)

The global variables storage, which is used for setting, retrieving, or removing variables.

In your HTTP requests, you can access a variable saved in as variable_name by using the {{variable_name}} syntax.



testName (string)

func (function)

Creates a test with the name testName and body func. All tests are executed after the response handler script.

condition (boolean)

message (string)

Checks that the specified condition is true; throws an exception otherwise. The optional message parameter serves as an exception message.
logtextPrints text to the response handler or test stdout and then terminates the line.
