Demonstrating Drag and Drop of Add Body Block into Canvas
Now enter the Payload inside the add body block.
By default Scriptworks provides a single line text edit field which is adequate for entering or editing smaller values. A recently added feature is the multiline block that can be expanded to display and edit much larger values e.g. a request body, as follows:
Click on Block symbol → Click on Input Values Link → Choose Multiline block → Drag and drop to Canvas.

5) Let’s give it a dry run and see what we are receiving in the response after the run.
In the above screenshot, we can see what request we have sent to the REST API with the kind of request headers that have been passed.
In the above screenshot, we can see how Scriptworks is logging the REST API response.
6) Drag in a comment to let others know what we are going to do now. And for that, follow Step 3 Above.
Search → Comment → Drag and Drop to Canvas
7) Now, to validate the response received (in Scriptworks terms - to assert). Drag the Assert block multiple times onto the canvas for the number of Assertions required and populate them with the information you wish to validate from the REST API response.
Search → Assert → Drag and Drop to Canvas
We have added the Assert Block. Now, what do we have to Assert?
We have to Assert the status code and message from the API Response. To get these properties of the Response we use the response properties block. So search for response in the search box and pick the response properties block and drag it into the canvas.
Search → Response → Drag and Drop Response Body into Canvas
8) Now, the final thing is a Test Run. Make sure you have followed the prerequisite mentioned above before the Test Run. Make sure you can see the Green Symbol before clicking on the play icon.
That’s how we can validate a REST API with the response code and status message in Scriptworks.
