Kloudless Uses Postman Collections to Simplify Access to Their Unified APIs

Check out the full case Kloudless case study here!

Kloudless offers unified APIs that enable you to easily integrate several cloud services with a single implementation. Kloudless abstracts away the differences between many APIs to create one simple interface for developers.

Headquartered in Berkeley, CA, Kloudless serves over 20,000 developers who make over 500 million API requests per month.

Kloudless fills the gap for a much needed product that can easily integrate cloud services, abstract away their differences and provide a single simple developer interface.

A Collection of Easy Access

Developers can now hit the ground running after setting up their application on Kloudless and receiving a Client ID, leaving time for the rigorous amount of testing Kloudless’ unified APIs generally require before implementation. The collection itself was created by Chris Prochnow, a Customer Success Engineer at Kloudless.

Given Postman’s popularity among developers, Kloudless was able to provide a convenient method for new users of the platform to get started quickly through their Postman Collection.

Postman for Success

As the main line of support for prospective customers and engineers testing out the API, Chris created the Postman Collection as a means to cut down the number of troubleshooting interactions he would participate in. Specifically, the collection would “cater to developers using Kloudless that are already familiar with Postman by keeping them in an environment they are accustomed to,” says Chris.

“Instead of a 20-minute test session, I can prompt the user with whatever they may have left out of the request that is integral to the API call.”

Chris anticipated common user errors and implemented a suite of tests alongside the collection that prompt the user if they’ve made a mistake.

By providing users with specific messages of direction as to what they may be missing from a
request, Kloudless accelerates the process of getting a developer authenticated and making calls
to the storage API.

Thanks to the collection’s built-in custom tests, if a user neglects to provide a necessary variable or query parameter, the built-in test can prompt them with whatever mandatory criteria they may have missed.
