The concept of a Saved request has been incorporated into the application from its first release in 2011. It allows you to specify an HTTP request object, name it, and store it in a separate data store. A saved request is not a part of a project or an API by default. However, you can add the Saved request to a project. Such a request will be visible in both Saved requests and in the project. From the data perspective a project is just additional metadata over a set of Saved requests (like order, name, and description).
