Test Secure REST services with Chrome Browser Plugin

Most of us want to test out the REST services via Advanced Rest Client or Postman for some reason or debug an issue.

But if the REST services are secure and protected by Ping Access or SiteMinder or any other tool, then we will get a login page. So we have to hard code the browser cookies to bypass the login page.

There is an another way to do that.

If you are using Advanced Rest Client(https://advancedrestclient.com), then you can use ARC cookie exchange plugin.
So this plugin helps ARC plugin to retrieve the browser cookies and send it in the request.

If you are using Postman(https://www.getpostman.com), then you can use Postman interceptor. So the Postman interceptor plugin helps the Postman plugin to use the browser cookies for each service call.
