Newbie Question on Setting Up Postman for Testing


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?
