Use the Kontent APIs with our Postman collection
Table of contents
1. Import the Postman collection
Use the following button to create a fork of the Kontent's Postman collection. We recommend using the fork option so that you can easily stay up to date with future updates.
Along with the collection, you'll also get a new Postman environment called Kontent REST APIs.
2. (Optional) Set up Postman environment variables
Postman environments are sets of variables with specific values. You can use these variables everywhere in your requests in Postman.
When you define a variable in an environment (instead of editing the collection), Postman will offer the variables via its auto-complete functionality every time you edit the example requests.
For instance, the Postman environment Kontent REST APIs comes with a variable named
project_id. This variable is also used in all requests in the collection. We recommend you change the variable's value to the ID of your own project.
In the collection itself, there's also the
managementApiKey variable set up as the authorization token for the Management API endpoints. Make sure to define the variable's value for your Postman environment.
Avoid exposing your API keys
By default, your collection and its variables are synchronized to your Postman account in the cloud.
To avoid mistakenly sharing or exporting your collection along with your API keys, always store the API keys in environment variables.
3. Send requests
The collection's structure mimics what you see in the API references. There are requests in each folder.
You can execute the requests by clicking Send. If you have an environment configured and selected in the top right corner, Postman will use the variable values of the environment.
After clicking Send, you'll get an API response. That's it!
