To get started, download the latest version of Postman and either import the Abound API Postman collection, either by link or by downloading and importing the collection file directly, or fork the collection into your own workspace by clicking the button below.

Check out the two Postman Learning Center articles Importing data into Postman and Creating a fork for more information.

The collection contains three important variables:

baseUrlInitially set to the sandbox environment.
appIdA non-sensitive, public identifier that is used to identify your app.
appSecretA 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.
