This article describes how to successfully import API specification to Postman and how to start working with the Connect API.


Before starting to work with the Postman client, make sure that all prerequisites are met.

Namely, it is required to create a Custom token, assign required permissions and copy your API Key/Handle value.

Furthermore, make sure that Postman uses correct API endpoint for making calls.

API Specification Import

First, get familiar with the API specification and download the required file via our Open API specification page.

After that, open the Postman client and import API specification as described below:

  1. Access your workspace and click the Import button.
  2. Click the Upload Files button and select your downloaded API specification file
  3. Once your file is uploaded, click the Import button to confirm this operation.

Therefore, the API specification will be successfully imported to Postman. Note that it is also required to paste your API Key/Handle and API endpoint to your generated collection by following the steps below.

Collection Configuration

Once the API specification is added successfully, access the Authorization and Variables options by clicking on your collection from your Postman workspace.

Authorization Settings

First of all, proceed to the Authorization tab and configure the authorization method as follows:

  • Type: Select API Key in this field.
  • Key: Choose Authorization.
  • Value: Paste your API Key/ Handle value that is copied from the CloudBlue Connect platform
  • Add to: Select Header.

Click the Save button to save your authorization method configuration.

Variables Settings

Switch to the Variables tab and make sure that the following variable and required values are configured correctly:

  • Variable: The table should have a variable that is called baseUrl.
  • Initial value: Shared with your team when you share your variable in a collection, environment and globals. This value may represent your copied API endpoint.
  • Current value: Used while sending a request and never synced with Postman servers. If this value is empty, the client automatically uses the initial value (may also contain your API endpoint).

Click the Save button to save your changes. Thus, you can test out your configuration and start working the Connect API via the Postman client.

Make a Sample Call

Test your configuration and ensure the Postman client works correctly by making a sample call.

For example, access the agreement section from your added collection and open the GET: dp Agreements- list Agreements call to access a list of your agreements objects on the CloudBlue Connect platform:

Uncheck the query parameters via the Key Value Edit mode or switch to the Bulk Edit mode and delete all provided parameters to list all your agreements objects. It is also possible to use this parameters to find specific agreements by using identifiers, associated marketplace, owner name, and so on.

Use the Send button to send your API call. The result of this call should appear under Response at the bottom of the Postman window.

In case more information on the Postman functionality is required, please refer to the Getting started with Postman documentation.
