How To Work with Web APIs

I recently found myself working with some Web APIs, and compiled a few tips & tricks on tools and techniques to make it a bit easier. We'll convert this into a help article or a blog post or something at some point, but wanted to share with the Community in case others are working with Web APIs.

In this document, I cover working with the QuickCharts API to create a chart. I'm using Insomnia (Postman is another popular choice) to get familiar with the endpoint, a Field Formula action to generate a JSON string, a Web API Post action, and postman-echo to help troubleshoot the request and response values.

Hope this is helpful and I welcome correction, feedback, and other tips.
