Run Backendless REST API in Postman

by on August 1, 2017

Quite often, you need to run a test query or send an API request to see the server response. Our REST docs show examples using curl, but at times that may be inconvenient. You may need to play with the API request arguments, change the body, etc., and modifying your curl command is not as straightforward. To make it easier, we created a collection of our APIs for Postman.

If you are not familiar with Postman, it is a desktop tool that lets you run API requests, see the server responses, you can easily change the endpoint URLs, request headers and body. Adding our API collection to Postman is now as simple as a click of a button because that button is integrated directly into Backendless Console. Check out the video below for an overview of the integration.
