REST Api - Https post RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-699381365 posted

    Hello,

    I writing a code to consume a REST api - HTTPS Post method.

    I will be consuming that api to send my data. to the external system.

    I have got the API url and credentials. Now, how do i test it in postman?? When I gave the url with credentials for basic authentication and hit SAVE, it does nothing,

    I am getting "could not get any response" but am also getting the Temporary Headers with encrypted value.

    Am i missing something here and where/when i  can pass data as the Json parameter to the API.??

    Try hit the Send instead of the Save button.

    Before you send the post, and put yout Json parameter in the request body.

    https://www.toolsqa.com/postman/basic-authentication-in-postman/

    In the body section postman have last options(Text), there you can set JSON to pass value as Json parameter.

    I have disabled the Proxy settings and ran the url and now I am getting 401 unauthorized (incorrect username/pwd) error.

    I have reached out the concerned party on that.

    Thanks,

    Hi Yang,

    Can we send multiple payload in a one post request of rest api?

    for example, if we are saving employee details, can we save more than one employee in one single post.

    can you share any sample? is there any limitations in sending payload ?

    THanks,

    Raj
