Using REST Console to test/debug Podio APIAnswered
Could you please advice if there is any way to use some REST Client/Console to test/debug/experiment with Podio API? I find API documentation being very scarce and lacking real world examples (like how do i calculate a sum of an app's numeric field for all items with another app's field equal to 'John') and I am looking for a way to discover parameters usage through trial and error.
Namely I am trying to use this console:
But I am having no luck authorizing myself.
A tutorial would be highely appreciated.
I can't help with how that particular plugin works, but you can find all the details on what authorization headers etc. to send here: https://developers.podio.com/authentication
I see in another thread that you are using our PHP client library. You'll get a lot more bang for your buck with some simple PHP command line script to work through sampling API calls. The PHP library has many functions for helping you deal with the boring aspects, e.g. authentication, formatting payloads when working with Podio items, setting up relationships and object properties. You can of course do the low level data handling yourself, but if you're already using a platform where we offer a client library I would encourage you to take full advantage.
All the best,
