JetBrains Rider 2020.2 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 JetBrains Rider starts, and ends when JetBrains Rider is closed. Values are not preserved between JetBrains Rider restarts.

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