View Request and Response Raw Messages in SoapUI
How to view request and response raw messages in SoapUI?
Request raw message is the actual data SoapUI is sending to the remote server, when you run a request. The Request raw message includes the GET, POST or other HTTP method line, request headers, and the request body.
Response raw message is the actual data SoapUI receives from the remote server, including the status line, response headers and the response body.
You can follow this tutorial to see how to view request raw message in SoapUI.
1. Start SoapUI on your computer.
2. Click "File > Import" menu to open your first SoapUI test project stored in "fyicenterFirst-project.xml". You see the test project displayed in the project explorer panel on the left.
3. Double-click on "HTTP Request" test step under "Project 1 > TestSuite 1 > TestCast 1> Test Steps". You see the "HTTP Request" window.
4. Click the "Run" icon on the request window. You see the test step executed.
5. Click the "Raw" tab on the request panel on the left. You see the request raw message, starting with the GET request line.
6. Click the "Raw" tab on the response panel on the right. You see the response raw message, starting with the status line of "HTTP/1.1 200 OK".

This question is for SoapUI 5.2.1 community edition:
I have a POST request with JSON body that contains variables.
I was always able to verify that these parameters take proper values by clicking on "Raw" tab to view the request as it went or will be sent to the server.
Today I found that I no longer see this and only see the headers.
What could be the problem and how can I troubleshoot this?

Check in the SOAPUI Preferences panel that your request size doesn’t exceed the Size of Raw Request Message to Show: property and has Wrap content in Raw Message Viewers property checked in UI Settings tab.
Open File > Preferences in menu ( CTRL + ALT + P ) and check this values:
Finally as @AlexE says in the comment, save preference using in the menu File > save preferences and restart SOAPUI.
I also want to advice that I saw a wrong behavior with this, like you I remember that before my requests are shown in the raw viewer but now I try it a first with a request that doesn’t exceed this values however it was not shown in the Raw viewer, however after increase the value and check the parameter it starts to work again.
Many collections of data contain some missing values. SAS can recognize these values as missing when it reads them. You use the following characters to represent missing values when reading raw data:
numeric missing values
are represented by a single decimal point (.). All input styles except list input also allow a blank to represent a missing numeric value.
character missing values
are represented by a blank, with one exception: list input requires that you use a period (.) to represent a missing value.
special numeric missing values
are represented by two characters: a decimal point (.) followed by either a letter or an underscore (_).
For more information about missing values, see Missing Values.
|Special Missing Values in Numeric Input Data|
SAS enables you to differentiate among classes of missing values in numeric data. For numeric variables, you can designate up to 27 special missing values by using the letters A through Z, in either upper- or lowercase, and the underscore character (_).
The following example shows how to code missing values by using a MISSING statement in a DATA step:
Note that you must use a period when you specify a special missing numeric value in an expression or assignment statement, as in the following:
However, you do not need to specify each special missing numeric data value with a period in your input data. For example, the following DATA step, which uses periods in the input data for special missing values, produces the same result as the input data without periods:
Output for both examples is shown here:
