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.

You can also open the new tab by entering ctrl+T or from the Open New menu select Tab option.
In the URL field, enter the following URL:
From the right side of the URL field, click on the Send button.
In the lower pane, you will get the response in JSON data from the server.
