Captured requests are useful for inspecting the request data your HTTP client or webhook provider are generating without forwarding the data on to a destination URL. Request Captures are similar in functionality to RequestBin.
Each of your buckets has a capture URL that consists of a bucket key and the Runscope hostname.
Here's an example capture URL (replace
bucket_key with the bucket key you'll receive after signing up for an account):
All requests made to the URL are captured and stored in the associated bucket and available for inspection. For free accounts, view captured requests in your "All Traffic" stream. Paid accounts have an additional Captures stream view that will display only requests made to capture URLs.
Note: If you're looking to capture and inspect an API or webhook service call that is relayed to a destination endpoint, check out Gateway URLs.
Capturing requests is particularly useful when building a webhook or HTTP push notification integration.
