Test APIs

Once you have an API key, you can start using the API's. Unless shown otherwise, APIs on the Portal API page are live endpoints. You can test them in a few ways:

  1. Each Method has a "Try it out" button where you can enter your key and other data to send to the endpoint and get responses. 
  2. You can take your key and use Postman or your favorite API tool to try the APIs.
  3. Test using the Apigee Rest Client
  4. There are specific directions for using the webhook subscriptions, so see the directions there for testing.

Depending on your use case and application, you may need to set up a Zebra device to work effectively with Zebra Data Services.
