Postman what is it?

Hi

I’m not a DEV and i just want to know if can i use Postman for my needs

I have a Shopify site and i want to connect 1 app to another since the app developers won’t do that for sure i want to come with solution

So this is how i reached to Postman and i want to check if i reached to the right place so i will be able to make a connection between them to each other etc

In general what i want to do is connect the checkout hosting with the “new” payment provider i will want to use…(the payment provider said something regard REST API)

Thanks

@supply-geoscientist1 Warm welcome to the community :partying_face:

You can check more on Postman official link.

Postman is a platform to build, test, design, modify, and document APIs. It is a simple Graphic User Interface for sending and viewing HTTP requests and responses.

I believe you are new to API’s and API Testing part. No worries, there is lot of documents/videos online to explain more about it. I have written a small article and published my API Testing tutorial document here. This would just be a start, you would need to learn more about Rest API architecture and jargons since you mentioned you need to handle about Rest API’s.

Coming to your real question, you have mentioned that you need to connect two applications. Can you explain a bit more here? I understand that you are a newbie here :blush: But please try to provide more details as much as possible.

So check with the developers if they have something called the API documentation. And this is where you get to know more about your API capabilities. Any application if they have an API developed for it, you can try hitting them through Postman. Simple as submitting a request on behalf of an application (Client), using another application’s API (Server), and checking that it returns the expected response.
