    Using the Python requests library, I can do something like this:

    <p>session = requests.Session()</p><p>session.post("https://testurl", ..., verify=false)</p>

     

    and Fiddler will detect the web request just fine. However, if I use a prepared request like so:

    <p>session = requests.Session()</p><p>request = requests.Request("POST", "https://testurl", ...)</p><p>session.prepare_request(request)</p><p>session.send(prepared, verify=false)</p><p></p>

     

    the sent web request does not show up in the session list in Fiddler. I've confirmed that the request is getting sent and receiving a response through the Python script, but for some reason it's not showing up in Fiddler. Any ideas? I don't have any filters or rules enabled.
