How Do I Deploy?

Can someone give me a quick break down of what Collections are and how they relate to deploying a simple GET request?

I’m going crazy because the docs here skew so hard to enterprise level - I just need to know how some simple things work. Getting so frustrated I need some cliff notes please!!!

Collections are just essentially a bunch of requests that are grouped together. So if I’m using the ‘PayPal’ API They’ve grouped their requests into folders for authorization, orders, invoices etc so all of the similar endpoints are grouped together.

Postman has some level up videos on their Youtube Channel: Postman Level Up Collections. They are super quick videos on features in Postman.

Postman is essentially a tool that allows you test API requests, build out an API from scratch, document an API, monitor an API etc.

What are you trying to accomplish with Postman?
