API Testing with POSTMAN

  1. Request; Your requests can include multiple details determining the data Postman will send to the API you are working with. Enter a URL and choose a method, then optionally specify a variety of other details. You can create a new request from the Postman home screen, by using New > HTTP Request, or by selecting the + button to open a new tab. You can select your method such as GET, PUT, POST, PATCH, DELETE etc. For Restful API everyone use JSON language. Under the Body section you can select JSON. According to Postman response you can check your datas. Please Do NOT forget click to SAVE button after all request to reuse them later.
  2. Environments; Postman environments allow us to effectively store and reuse values ​​in our requests and scripts. Three way to create Environment Variables;
    2.a) On the up-right side you will see Environment section, you can click and Add your environments to use on your collection.
    2.b) On the collection side you will see Three Dots > Edit > Variables.
    2.c) From Pre-Request Script section select Get On Environment Variable from right side Postman advises.
  3. Monitoring your API; “Postman Monitors give you continuous visibility into the health and performance of your APIs. Setting up a new monitor is fast and flexible. Keep watch on a single endpoint, run API tests using your existing test scripts, or chain together a sequence of requests to validate critical API flows. Once the monitor is running you’ll get alerted to any failures, so you can quickly identify and address issues before your API’s consumers are affected.” To gain continuously reports from your APIs monitoring service is useful as well as you can determine testing periods.
