php artisan migrate:refresh --seed

Using the Postman Apiato API Collection

The first thing you need to do to use the Apiato endpoints is to log in to your Apiato API.

  • Select the Apiato API Collection in the left menu.
  • Select Authentication folder.
  • Select Login endpoint.
  • Click Send button.

The response will return a body with the API access token. Normally you would have to manually add this in a header with each request using Authorization: Bearer TOKEN. This however is automatically done for you.

From this point you can now access all endpoints using the Super Admin role.

If you would like to test logging into your application with different users then switch to the body tab on the login endpoint and update the credentials.
