Testing API Calls using your Edge/Chrome

This is for those times when a single instance of an API call needs to be tested. Sometimes, API testing tools are not available or extensions to browsers are not permitted in the environment. In some instances, this neat little code below can help in a pinch. It can be executed in the console of Chrome or Edge Developer Tools which isĀ  generally available.

fetch('', {
  method: 'POST',
  body: JSON.stringify({
    examplefield1: 'zzz',
    examplefield2: 'yyy',
  headers: {
    'Content-type': 'application/json; charset=UTF-8'
.then(res => res.json())
