Collection variable from Postman response to update environment

Anyone out there have done some updates to Postman environments. I'm looking into creating org with Postman, then pull the {id} from the response to update the {organizationId} in the environement and the run create network and pull {networkId} to update network settings.

 

has anyone an example test code for this, I'm struggeling to update the environment variable.

@Kenneth  You can write test scripts within postman to achieve this.

https://learning.postman.com/docs/writing-scripts/test-scripts/ 

 

Here is an example to iterate the organization list from getOrganizations request and set target org id to an environment variable.  (of course, you need an environment and associate it with your requests)

 

const jsonData = JSON.parse(responseBody);
for (let i = 0; i < jsonData.length; i++ ){
  if (jsonData[i]['name'] === "postman-test"){
  pm.environment.set("organizationId", jsonData[i]['id']);
  }
}
