In this video, see how you can test your APIs using a tool called Postman.
- [Instructor] We've used Postman quite a bit…throughout this course so far to make simple requests…to our web API services.…Postman offers quite a few advanced features…for both its free and paid versions.…I'll show you some of the more powerful features…that I think will help you create, debug, mock,…and test your APIs.…As you're testing your APIs you may start to find…that you want to create different settings…for different projects or clients.…For that reason, Postman provides the ability…to create something called workspaces,…available from this menu up here in the middle…at the top of the header.…
These are basically a container…that holds all of your settings, collections,…histories, and so forth.…As you can see here from the new workspaces dialogue,…I'm able to set up a new one for either a team…or for me individually.…Postman also lets you set global variables…that you can use throughout your APIs.…They're available here under this eye icon.…For example, if you wanted to use the same email address…for all of your API calls…
