When recording requests for use as test fixtures, you don't want to include secrets like authentication tokens and personal ids. These functions provide a means for redacting this kind of content, or anything you want, from responses that capture_requests() saves.


redact_headers(response, headers = c())

within_body_text(response, FUN)




An 'httr' response object to sanitize.


For redact_headers(), a character vector of header names to sanitize. Note that redact_headers() itself does not do redacting but returns a function that when called does the redacting.


For within_body_text(), a function that takes as its argument a character vector and returns a modified version of that. This function will be applied to the text of the response's "content".


All redacting functions return a well-formed 'httr' response object.


redact_cookies() removes cookies from 'httr' response objects. redact_headers() lets you target selected request and response headers for redaction. redact_auth() is a convenience wrapper around them for a useful default redactor in capture_requests().

within_body_text() lets you manipulate the text of the response body and manages the parsing of the raw (binary) data in the 'response' object.
