How to post JSON data in Postman -REST Client Chrome

Share with WhatsApp

Postman - REST Client is one of the best Google Chrome app available on the chrome store. It's Free and many developers world wide use this app/extension to test the REST API they are developing.

It provided several features which are very useful while developing and testing REST API's. 

You can test GET,PUT,POST and many other type of methods in POSTMAN but I found that many of the developers are facing issues while testing a method which requires input parameter as JSON, so I decided to share it here.

If you are not aware how to test API using POSTMAN, you can read the below docs.

Now to post JSON data, 

  • First type URL of the API
  • Change method type to POST
  • In paramter section click on "raw" tab and select format as "JSON" and add your json in the textarea provided
  • Click on "Headers" (right corner in URL line) & add "Content-Type" as header and "application/json; charset=UTF-8" as value.

(Refer below image)


Now click on "send", you will find that your request now received the json parameters you provided.

Here adding "Content-Type" in header is important which tells the MIME type (Internet media type) of the HTTP request made.

Hope you have benefited from this simple post. Thanks.
