Last updated: Sep 26, 2023

So long as you're part of a dashboard organization, you can simulate sending outgoing API requests with Redox DevTools. Test messages go to a mock EHR system, and you can review the resulting logs in the Redox dashboard.

Follow these instructions to use DevTools.

  1. Log in to the dashboard.
  2. From the navigation menu, click the Developer page.
  3. By default, the Developer page opens and displays the API Keys tab. A default Redox API Endpoint API key has been created for you. Click the Edit button in the Redox API Endpoint tile.
  4. The endpoint's Settings page displays. Two other DevTools tabs appear. You can use either option to generate and send requests to Redox and view the results.
    • DevTools (Curl): Generates example curl command requests for each data model that you can use to send via your local machine.

    • DevTools (Postman): Contains download links to set up example requests through the common third-party tool Postman. Check out Postman.
  5. After sending requests, check your logs by navigating to the Logs page. Learn how to search for logs.
  6. (Optional) After successfully testing outgoing requests, you can test your own endpoints to make sure they can receive the data you're expecting.
