Get up and running quickly with the Abound API using Postman.

To get started, download the latest version of Postman and import the Abound API Postman collection, either by link or by downloading and importing the collection file directly. Check out the Postman Learning Center article Importing data into Postman for more information.

The collection contains three important variables:

Key

Value

baseUrl

Initially set to the sandbox environment.

appId

A non-sensitive, public identifier that is used to identify your app.

appSecret

A sensitive, private key used to make secure calls to the Abound API from your backend.

Update the appId and appSecret collection variables with your keys, which can be located on the Keys page of the Abound Dashboard.

Alternatively, read through our in-depth Postman Collection guide to learn how to set up the Abound API Postman collection using environments.
