    Hi Ravi, so excited to hear from someone getting started with API! I'm checking with the rest of the team to see if there's a particular resource they recommend for people who are beginning to learn about API. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back from them.

    We plan to post a series of articles on this forum, which will explain some use-cases for what you can do with Wrike's API.

    I also wanted to let you know that it's possible to use Wrike API even for simple requests which don't require additional coding. There are some free third-party tools, like Fiddler or Postman (the add-in for Chrome browser), which can help you craft basic requests.

    Once familiar with API theory, I would personally recommend starting with Postman for Chrome. They have great docs, explaining how to use the tool for requests to the REST API. After learning the basics of Postman, you can start trying out some simple requests to the Wrike API. Please follow the steps I described in this post, but instead of coding, try sending HTTP requests via Postman (make sure to pass the Authorization header with your permanent token, as indicated in our help docs (Step 3).

    For Wrike API specifics, we have a full guide covering supported methods, you can check it out on our Developer's Portal :)

    Hi Ravi! I wanted to share a great resource with you, which was created by one of our API integration partners, Zapier: An Introduction to APIs. This is a tutorial for those who want to understand the basic concepts of the REST API and the main principles of working with it. Easy to read and step-by-step, hope it helps!

    I would love to. Do you think you could post a sample Java or C# app to get me started? I would be quite thankful.

     I'm new to Wrike but I'm trying to develop an easy to use API Client with C# on github, maybe it might be useful for other C# developers.

    Hello

     

    This code sample was very useful, I'd like to request a sample using POST to add new data like a folder or task please.
