Interact With API Requests


#1

What tools allow you to make requests to an API based off a swagger spec? I have a spec and all but a client would like to be able to interact with the API without having to make a UI in order to make backend changes.


#2

I find Postman to be a great tool for testing API’s. With the ability to include Auth, you could send API calls like Puts and Posts to manipulate backend data too.

Postman’s tool also allows you to save Requests so you could build up a list of requests so you can send them quickly.


#3

I normally use swagger editor (https://editor.swagger.io/).
