Viewing the HTTP Request and Response of an Issue

An HTTP request includes information that is sent by a client to the website over hypertext transfer protocol when you click a link, submit a button or expand a menu, for example. This information mostly contains the request method, the host address of the target site, the path or the page you requested, and some headers. The server responds to this request, which is referred to as an HTTP response.
