Newbie Question on Setting Up Postman for Testing

I'm able to use the APIs to retrieve list and contacts and update values. But, I want to use the PHP code that I've written to manipulate a field for all contacts in a list. I can do that as well.

 

What I am trying to figure out is:

1) how to add the authorization code to my PHP file

2) how to use the authorization code that I've successfully executed in subsequent calls.

- WORKING: https://api.cc.email/v3/idfed?client_id={client_id}&redirect_uri=https://localhost&response_type=cod...

- NOT WORKING: https://api.cc.email/v3/contact_lists?client_id={client_id}

I'm using Postman so if there is a return code from https://api.cc.email/v3/idfed?client_id={client_id}&redirect_uri=https://localhost&response_type=cod... I'm not seeing it. Also, I'm not sure what the parameter name should be - is it access_token?
