This lesson assumes that you’re familiar with basic REST API requests and responses. If you’ve never used a REST API before, check out a tutorial before starting these exercises (http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/a-beginners-guide-to-http-and-rest–net-16340).
Locate your API token on the My Account page (https://cloud.skytap.com/account).
If API tokens are not enabled in your account, an administrator can enable them using the instructions at Setting Access Policies.
Use a browser-based API client (like Postman) to make a few sample API calls. For example, to view a list of environments that you own, make a GET request to
https://cloud.skytap.com/configurations. Remember to include a Basic Authentication header and an Accept header (see our API Quick Start Guide for guidance).
