Debugging Postman Queries


Today I was trying to play around with an API but kept getting 401 errors when using Postman despite the fact that I was following the APIs guide for auth. When I tried the same query using curl I had no issues at all.

So I Googled a bit and found that you can get Postman to generate code of your request in a variety of formats including curl. Using this approach I generated the curl equivalent and immediately saw that in my auth header I had included a $ as part of the token portion. Once I removed this I had everything working perfectly.
