Keep sensitive data private by connecting to your system of record using the POST method.

  1. Click Add sample request.
  2. Optional: To import key value pairs from a file, click Choose File.
    Each key value pair must have a colon between the key and the value and be separated by a new line, for example:

    currency: usd

    1. Navigate to the file you want to import and click Open.
    2. Edit the fields as necessary.
