Everyone seems to want an API these days. Whether it's for a mobile application or a web application, requirements for most projects have API endpoints included. We've seen plenty of people talk about how to create an API with drupal, but how about testing that API?

Postman is an easy to use tool that allows for sending, modifying and saving http requests. In this talk, I will demonstrate how to use Postman to effectively test your API endpoints. The tool is quite easy to use, but there are a lot of cool tricks that can be done to greatly speed up API development and testing.

This demo will cover the following:

  • API endpoints in drupal (quick example)
  • General Postman usage
  • Collections
  • Environment variables
  • Tokens and authentication
  • Automatic triggers and tests
