Bloomreach provides a public Postman workspace that contains a Welcome Kit (DataConnect environment and collection) for all Catalog Management and Search and Merchandising APIs in order to make working with the APIs easier for developers.
This guide will help you configure and use it.

Alternatively, you can go to the Bloomreach public Postman workspace, select the relevant API, and use the Create a fork option.
Configuring the Environment
The Postman Collections include a Welcome Kit: DataConnect environment.

|account_id||Your Bloomreach provided account ID|
|domain_key||Where this information will be stored on the backend represented with catalog name and language key|
|key||An API key will be provided for each environment in your account. This access key must be placed in the Authorization header.|
|url||The absolute URL of the page where the request is initiated. Do not use a relative URL|
|ref_url||The URL of the page or HTTP referrer where the request is started|
|br_uid_2||The br_uid_2 cookie is a first-party cookie created by the Bloomreach tracking pixel library|
|request_id||An ID to track site visitor clicks. We recommend you generate unique random values of 13 digits to enable click-tracking|
