Code generation

Postman is able to generate the relevant code to make requests in a variety of languages.

In this example, we will generate the appropriate authentication request for curl.

As you can see, we can make an equivalent request in curl.

This is valuable for bash scripts, where we can store the values of the tokens in variables. However, Postman does this automatically, which makes it a convenient tool with which to investigate APIs.
