Testing AR System REST API

You can test REST services with various tools such as REST Client, Advanced REST Client, or Hurl.it. This topic describes how to use Postman - REST client to test REST API.

You can use Postman - REST Client 3.2.8 or higher to test the REST API. Postman is a powerful HTTP client for testing web services and makes it easy to test, develop, and document APIs by allowing users to quickly put together both simple and complex HTTP requests.

All API calls sent using the Postman app are stored in history, allowing them to be easily loaded into the response viewer at a later time. For more information and to download Postman - REST Client, see GetPostman.com.

The video is recorded using the earlier version of BMC Remedy AR System and is valid for BMC Remedy AR System 9.1 and later versions.
