We highly recommend using Postman Google Chrome app when using the Datafiniti API. Postman is a generic but helpful API client and it will make using our API much easier.
To install Postman, follow the steps on this page.
If you're working with our Customer Success team, you were probably given a Postman collection specifically for your Datafiniti account. This collection is a set of saved API calls that you let you pull out relevant API requests quickly. To add your collection, follow these steps:
- Click "Import" from the top menu bar.
- Click "Choose Files".
- Select the collection file given to you by our Customer Success team.
The import will automatically happen. Once it's done, you'll see a Datafiniti option under "Collections" in the left-hand menu area.
Since you're most likely going to be working with JSON-formatted data if you're using Postman, we recommend setting the default language to JSON.
To do this, click on File > Settings and set Language Detection to JSON.
