Step 1: Install Postman
Postman is our favorite tool for testing our APIs. It can generate code samples for a large number of languages, so you can be up and running in seconds. We provide a collection of API samples that you can load into Postman.
Step 2: Download your custom Postman Collection and Environment
Each source you create in redox will have a section labeled Dev Tools where you can put together quick cURL snippets or download a postman Collection and Environment file specific to the source.
Make sure you download both files.
Step 3: Import the collection into Postman
Use the import button pictured here to load the file you downloaded in Step 2. You will see a new collection on the “Collections” tab.
We sorted our requests into three folders: Authorization, POST Data Models, and Queries.
Step 4: Import the Environment file
Locate the environment dropdown (top right), click the gear and choose manage environments.
The manage enviroment popup will appear. Click Import from the options in the bottom and open your environment file.
Step 4: Enter your secret in Postman
After you have imported the environment, you should be able to edit the variables.
Locate the secret variable and set it to your source secret.
Step 5: Connect!
In the Authorization folder, you will find the Initial Login request. Run the login request and it should set your access token automatically.
From here, you can test out any of our data models.
