Fiddler Ideas

The free web debugging proxy for any browser, system or platform.

Save/Load filter presents

I find myself applying the same filters again and again on each launch of Fiddler (I mean the filters listed below the list of requests).

I think it would be really great if you could allow the restoration of previously applied filters (e.g. by having a save/load filters option).

Also, allowing to filter out by "Request Method" would be great too.


Congratulations on this tool, by the way.

It is really great. :)

    Yes, the "Quick Filters" feature was never really finished, and there are a few obvious improvements to make. The only challenge is that some of the possible rules are very instance specific (e.g. filtering by process ID is unlikely to work for a long period)

    FWIW, if you want to filter on request method today, you can create a rule in the AutoResponder (which can set flags on Sessions based on many criteria).

    Pattern: METHOD:POST
    Action: *flag:ui-hide=HidePosts

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Save/Load filters! This is super required feature! It is very hard to work in modern environment with heavy network traffic from nearly all apps, when really required only from specific one. It is very annoying to apply the same filters again and again...

    Yes! And it would be great to be able to edit.saved filters!

    For example, when the Process Id changes, I could just update that.
