- Now, send the message and you will get a response back with the access_token.
- Now, call the actual integration flow URL now by selecting the authorization as “Bearer” and input the value which you have got in the access_token field of the previous step.

- The Postman test can also be done in another way. Call the Integration Flow endpoint directly by selecting the authorization as “Oauth 2.0”.
- Then, Configure the new token by selecting the Grant type as “Client Credentials” and fill in the appropriate filed with its respective data.
- Click “Get New Access Token” –> ”Proceed” –> “Use Token”. Now, send the request and you can see the same expected response.
