HTTP Headers

To reduce the number of HTTP headers returned by the ThingSpeak™ server, add the parameter headers=false to any REST API call.

You can also send API keys via HTTP headers by setting the header name to THINGSPEAKAPIKEY and the header value to the API key instead of sending the API key as a parameter.

Sample POSTMAN Request

You can configure POSTMAN to try RESTful API calls. To send an HTTP GET request to Read Field, add the parameter headers=false to the request, and configure POSTMAN as shown:

Note that fewer headers are returned in the response when the parameter headers=false is included in the request.

To send a HTTP GET request to Read Field, configure the POSTMAN as shown. Set the header name to THINGSPEAKAPIKEY and the value to YOUR-CHANNEL-READAPIKEY, which you can find on the API Keys page of your private channel.

If you want to update your channel, you can also include YOUR-CHANNEL-WRITEAPIKEY as the value for the THINGSPEAKAPIKEY header.
