In this video, you are challenged to find some information in the example API that is supposed to be secret.
- [Instructor] Now that you know a bit more…about Gitcalls and how to approach test them,…I want to give you a hands-on testing challenge.…Let's put what we're learning into practice.…There's nothing quite like doing something…for helping you to learn.…So for this challenge, you'll have to…follow the instructions in the…"Install and Setup API Challenges" video.…So if you haven't gone through that video yet,…you'll need to go back and do that…and set everything up so that you'll be able…to do these challenges.…So this challenge is called "Find the secret."…And let's navigate into the directory…where we have our repo cloned.…
So we'll navigate into here.…And now we can start up the challenge.…So we'll do that by calling node,…and then we'll use the find the secret server,…and just hit enter to start that.…And you can see that this has started up…a server for us that we can use,…and the request that we want to make,…so the API request, can be made using this base URL.…So we'll copy that and we'll put that in Postman.…
