Retrofit: How to wait for response

I have AsyncTask and the doInBackground method inside which, I sending POST request using Retrofit. My code looks like:

//method of AsyncTask
protected Boolean doInBackground(Void... params) {
Retrofit restAdapter = new Retrofit.Builder()
IConstructSecureAPI service = restAdapter.create(IConstructSecureAPI.class);
Call<JsonElement> result = service.getToken("TestUser", "pass", "password");
result.enqueue(new Callback<JsonElement>() {
public void onResponse(Call<JsonElement> call, Response<JsonElement> response) {


public void onFailure(Call<JsonElement> call, Throwable t) {


return true;

My problem is following: Retrofit sending request asynchronously and while it doing it, the doInBackground method returning value. So I need to sending a request in the same thread, that all execution in the sequence. One by one. And returning from doInBackground occurs after request finished. How can I send a request in the same thread using Retrofit?

The Call class has an execute() method that will make your call synchronously.

enqueue() is explicitly for making an asychronous call.
