Inspector Usage

What does it do?

Request Inspector is a free service that allows you to create a unique endpoint where you can send HTTP requests for testing purposes.

This tool would then display the incoming requests in real-time so you can observe and analyze them.

How does it work?

Create a Unique Endpoint

Use the Request Inspector service to generate a unique URL, acting as your testing endpoint.

Send Requests

Utilize this unique URL as the target for your webhooks or HTTP requests. Any requests sent to this URL will be captured by the Request Inspector service.

Real-Time Display

The service shows incoming requests in real-time on a web interface, enabling you to view details such as the request method, headers, payload (data), and more. Additionally, the service maintains a history of the last 100 requests for public endpoints and 250 requests for registered user endpoints.

Testing and Debugging

Utilize the real-time display to test and debug your webhooks or any HTTP-based integrations. This is particularly useful for verifying the correct structure of the data you're sending and ensuring your webhook endpoints process the data as expected.

Security and Privacy

Request Inspector endpoints automatically expire after 180 days from their last access, ensuring your testing data is not accessible indefinitely. For added security, you can protect the display of public endpoints with a password. Public endpoints retain the request history for 2 days, while registered user endpoints preserve data 10 days.
