How this template works
The API selection filters in this template specify the criteria for selecting the API to be tested. In this case, the filters include the response code range (between 200 and 299) and the extraction of the URL variable.
The execute section defines the type of request to be executed, which is a single request in this case. It also includes the modification of the URL by appending "/console" to the extracted URL variable.
The validation section specifies the expected response code (200) and validates that the response payload contains the string "Interactive Console". This ensures that the request was successful and the expected functionality of an interactive console is present.
