Postman is software that you can use to test APIs.  See: https://www.getpostman.com/ (External Link).


Overview


You can import the DAP web services endpoints into a Postman collection using the following address:

https://data.csiro.au/dap/v2/api-docs

Note: at the time of writing the Authorization settings will default to Basic Auth.  Public use of /ws/v2 endpoints should not require authentication.  CSIRO staff who with so use authentication may wish to read the /ws/v2 authentication guide and edit the Postman collection accordingly.
