What is Postman?
Postman is one of the most popular API testing tools. It is very simple to use and intuitive API testing tool or application. We don’t need any knowledge of programming language.
How to Download Postman for Windows
It is an open source tool. You can easily download it from Google.
After downloading the Postman, you can easily install by double click on it.
After installed, it will ask for signup. After login it will show like below.
Note: In my case, in left hand side it is showing few APIs which stored in my account. In your case it will not show anything.
Now it’s time to create workspace in postman.

Collection: It is a group of API request. You can put similar kind of APIs into one collection.
Now I am going to show you, send a request and get response. Before that we need to create Collection.

Open above URL and you can see below data.
I am going to use GET request with below endpoint in Postman.
