Using Postman to create a record

Previously I experiment with searching using Postman  Today lets create a record and upload a file in the same request.

Some Code

Here is the HTTP I generated using Postman.

POST /ServiceAPI81/record HTTP/1.1
Host: desktop-39dgcn3
Authorization: Basic aXR1X3RhZG1pbjpUcmltQEhQMQ==
Accept: application/json
Cache-Control: no-cache
Postman-Token: b9575896-9e99-ccf0-4803-452e4fba11d4
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=----WebKitFormBoundary7MA4YWxkTrZu0gW

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="RecordRecordType"

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="Files"; filename=""

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="RecordAuthor"

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="AlcoholLevel"


Using Postman to experiment with the ServiceAPI


The ServiceAPI includes a number of facilities for experimenting with service calls, including extensive samples and the 'swagger' interface.  If you want to test your service requests in a less structured way without having to write code then Postman is a great option.

This video is a brief introduction to using Postman demonstrating how to do a simple Record search.
