Why I am not getting error message in postman using Spring Boot Application

I want “Admin not found” message to display in Postman during invalid login but I am getting this as postman output

    "timestamp": "2020-05-19T13:59:01.172+00:00",
    "status": 404,
    "error": "Not Found",
    "message": "",
    "path": "/api/adminLogin"

    public class AdminController {

    UserRepository userRepository; 

    public User login(@RequestBody User user) throws ResourceNotFoundException {

        User user1 = userRepository.findByUserName(user.getUserName());
        if(user1 != null && user1.getRole().equalsIgnoreCase("admin")) {
            return user1;
            throw new ResourceNotFoundException("Admin not found");

public class ResourceNotFoundException extends RuntimeException {

    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

    public ResourceNotFoundException() {

    public ResourceNotFoundException(String message) {

    public ResourceNotFoundException(String message, Throwable cause) {
        super(message, cause);

My Postman URL http://localhost:8989/api/adminLogin

My admin login success is working fine


I solved the problem by including the below code in file

server.error.include-message = always
