I have used Drupal 7 before and the web services were working perfectly fine. I recently started working on Drupal 8 (8.8 to be precise), and the login service is not working properly. When I do not give the username or the password it should ideally give a message that username/password must be entered. But I am not getting any response here.

It's just returning HTML content. I have been searching lot of posts on this and nothing seems to work for me. I am testing the same in Postman. Below is the screenshot of the same. Postman screenshot with login service

I have gone through the below links before posting here..

For the postman section of your issue: /user/login?_format=json is a POST request (not get as in your screenshot) and the body should be JSON not x-www-form.
