We have many customers new to using APIs and some who are using Postman for the first time. For those of you who are already pros, would you mind sharing some details on your use cases and how you use the two together?

Some questions to help guide you:

  • What do you use Postman for with the Expensify API?
  • Do you have any tricks to share?
  • What are some common blockers one just starting out might face?
  • Where do you find resources when you run into trouble with Postman?

    We use Postman to test API calls prior to writing any code. This allows for a quick tests and adjustments just to make sure things work.

    The biggest thing we struggled with initially was passing the output template as part of the call (the .ftl) and knowing to send the postman request as a form-urlencoded request.

    Perhaps some basic calls/how-to on the API page would have made this super simple to get started with.
