Postman Collection for Picky Assist API's
Postman is a popular tool to test and develop APIs. To make it more convenient for developers who are integrating the Picky Assist APIs, we've developed a Postman collection that contains the full set of APIs.

Postman offers a configurable environment which is essentially a set of key-value pairs. It allows you to create commonly used variables that can be reference across multiple requests. You can read more about it here.
The pre-configured 'Picky Assist' environment contains set of variables that are referenced by the collection. It's important for you to edit and replace the variables with your own values.
