Variables in APITest tab

I lack variables when using APItest tab
For instance, get an id in one test, then use it in the request in another test or in the validator for another test

Without this it is difficult to make integration api tests
Any ideas how can I do this?

    Fiddler does not itself support variables here (maybe Test Studio does?), but it's a great and common feature request. Today, the closest you can get is by using FiddlerScript to modify the test as it runs; see

    Telerik Test Studio for APIs provides variables, reusable tests and organizes your API tests in a clean project structure. It's a standalone tool that goes well together with Fiddler, allowing you to import Fiddler sessions (.saz files) as a starting point for your tests. Check it out.

    Thanks for the answers
    I'll try fiddlerscript 
    BTW, fiddler is my favourite tool, thanks Eric! Hope there will be updates for the APItest tab)

    I tried Test Studio, but didn't like it much
