HTTP Requests

General aspects

A HTTP request is composed by:

  • HTTP method / verb
  • Request URL
  • HTTP version
  • Headers (optional)
  • Body (optional)

A HTTP response contains:

  • HTTP version
  • HTTP response status code
  • Headers (optional)
  • Body (optional)


To create a new request, click on a collection or folder and select New HTTP request. You can also do that clicking with your mouse's right button.

Copying, pasting and deleting

To copy, paste or delete a request, right-click on it in the left panel or use keyboard shortcuts.

You can select more than one request or folder at the same time and copy or delete them together.

TLS / SSL server certificate verification

By default, Pororoca verifies server SSL / TLS certificates on HTTPS connections, and if there are any validation failures, the request will not go forward, like in the picture below.


To disable server TLS certificate check, click on the button on the bottom, or go to the top menu, "Options", and select "Disable TLS verification".
