Test POST request to Gateway with SoapUI

This blog describes how to make POST calls containing CSRF tokens to Gateway using SoapUI.

The testcase contains 3 steps, and a property named CSRF,


Check field “Maintain HTTP session” under testcase options, this will make sure that the cookies set in the GET request are reused in the POST request,

1: Get CSRF

This will fetch the token via a GET request, add header “X-CSRF-Token” and value “Fetch”

2: Groovy Script

The script will take the token from the GET request and store it in the testcase “CSRF” property


def headerValue = testRunner.testCase.getTestStepByName(“Get CSRF”).httpRequest.response.responseHeaders[“x-csrf-token”]; headerValue[0] );

testRunner.testCase.setPropertyValue( “CSRF”, headerValue[0] );


The actual request using the token, add header “X-CSRF-Token” with value “${#TestCase#CSRF}”, set content type according to input data

  • Hi Lars,

    We have tried the above  for our ABAP odata  for Post method ( ie Batch create ).

    We are not getting any response .

    The required entry is not getting created in our tables.

    Any special configuration needs to be maintained?



  • Hi

    Thanks for the post, but the first step is the key and could please show some more details?

    In my situation, I need to login the test box at first then get the Cookies and token. The first step of request would be Post, instead of Get.

    Many thanks.
