Get Started with Postman Mock Servers

This video covers the other side of creating APIs – when you are ready to test your client-side calls to an API but the server-side code is not ready yet.
Postman allows you to create Mock Servers that you can use to create documentation as well as to generate test data for your client-side AJAX calls.

  1. Oh my God, thank you @Steve Griffith. Finally some decent native english speaker AND a great presentation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  2. I don't know if I am a lazy programmer, however your explanation was so precise that I didn't need to read postman documentation. I just needed this demonstration! Thank you! Obrigado from Brazil!

  3. Hi there. Thanks for your video. It's simple and clear, helped me a lot 🙂
    By any chance, you would be aware of any ways to set the headers of the preflight OPTIONS request you show at 13:48 ? The goal here to solve the CORS error I get, but I'm kind of stuck :s

    Thx for any response

  4. Hi Steve, very useful tutorial, do you happen to know if it is possible to simulate endpoints with url parameters?


    what I'm trying to do is simulate a filtered and paginated response by setting this parameters

    is that even possible???
