To use the API requests in the Postman collection, you must also use the Oystehr Postman environment and configure two of its environment variables. These environment variables are used for authentication with the Oystehr APIs. In the left-most menu in the Postman UI, select "Environments", then choose "Oystehr API Environment".

You will find placeholders that need to be set for the following variables:

  • bearerToken
  • projectId
