Data Lens Developer's Guide

Using Postman

Postman is a Chrome plugin that facilitates communication with REST APIs. We use it throughout our documentation to illustrate making authenticated requests with the Data Lens REST API. Other similar tools are available, but we recommend Postman so you can better follow our examples.

Installing Postman

To install Postman, download it from the following URL: After installation, Postman appears in your Chrome app list:
