Postman Sending Your First Request

Sending a request is as easy as posting a URL into your web browser. We can easily send requests to APIs in Postman. An API request helps you to access, or send, data from a data source.

To send the API request, we need an HTTP method. Some commonly used methods are POST, GET, DELETE, PUT, and PATCH.

GET: This HTTP method is used to access the data from an API.

POST: This method transmits new data.

DELETE: This is used to remove or delete the existing data.

PATCH: This method is used to update the existing data.

PUT: This method is used to update the existing data.

Without any terminal or code, we can make API requests and review the answers with the help of postman. Just build a new request and select the send button, you'll get the API response.
