We know that getting familiar with any new API can be daunting, with new endpoints, terminology and let's not forget OAuth isn't always the simplest bridge to cross. We wanted to make starting out with our APIs (or even debugging more complex calls and queries) much easier for you, and for us. So allow us to introduce, our Postman Collections.
What is Postman?
Postman is a powerful REST api client designed for exploring and debugging your API development. it allows you to create repeatable tests and collections of endpoints/requests that can be automated and used in a variety of ways. Postman allows you to work through the various API calls before committing to code. Postman is a free tool for Mac or Windows. Download it here.
We know already that a large section of our developer community has been using Postman for years to help debug their integration to our APIs. We felt in the essence of making all our lives simpler, we would build something for us all.
MYOB AccountRight Collection
Starting out with MYOB AccountRight, we have a collection of over (as at writing) 253 various requests you can make using this API. We're pretty confident in saying this covers every method to ever endpoint, most complete with example payloads.
To start using this collection you will need:
- To download and install Postman
- Download our AccountRight API collection (visit this link & click the Run In Postman button)
This will have you looking at a Postman client/collection that looks like this
