Using Postman API Collections
Postman lets you maintain and run collections of API requests. We have created API collections for most LogMeIn products and most of the products on this API site.
IMPORTANT: The Postman collections are NOT SUPPORTED. They are provided for your experimentation and use.
IMPORTANT: The Postman files are occasionally updated. Please download if your versions are older than the last update.
If you are already using Postman and are familiar with the product and its use, all you need to do to get started is click on any of these links to automatically install the collections you want.
Follow the directions at getpostman.com to install Postman.
- If you have not already done so, install the collection(s) you want from the list below:
- GoToAssist Remote Support
- GoToAssist Service Desk
- GoToAssist Corporate
- GoTo Admin
Create a developer app
If you have not already done so, create an application for the product you want to use.
- On the GoToDeveloper site, choose MyApps from the menu bar (upper right) and then click Add a New App.
- Enter an app Name, Description, the GoTo Product, and set the Application URL to: https://www.getpostman.com/oauth2/callback.
- Choose Create App.
Once the app is crested, open the link and copy the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret.
Get a new access token
In Postman, you can create a call in your product collection to get a token.
- Create a new Postman POST call.
Open Postman, and choose the + tab to create a new call.
- As shown in the image:
- Choose POST from the drop-down.
- Copy and paste the GetGo token URL.
- Choose the Authorization tab.
- And choose Get New Access Token.
- Enter the call data in Get New Access Token as shown:
- Name of the token - these last an hour and are displayed in a list. A useful format is <Product><date><24:00>. For example, a GoToWebinar token created on July 18, 2019 at 2:15 pm would be named "G2W 20190718 1415".
- Use the same URL for Callback that you used as Application URL in the Create App step above.
- Copy in the GetGo Auth and Token URLs:
- Copy in the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret from your developer app.
When the form is filled in with this information, click Request Token.
- When the token has been issued, scroll down to view (and copy) the accountKey and organizerKey values.
If the call is unsuccessful, verify all the components of the call and try again.
Now, for any call in the next hour, you can:
- Open the call in Postman.
- Select the Authorization tab and set TYPE to OAuth 2.0.
- Open the Available Tokens list, and choose your new token.
- Modify the call as needed - set variables, etc.
- Make the call!
