Three tips for new users working with Sisense's REST API for the first time.
1. If you're running API calls through our Swagger UI (ie, by going to Admin -> REST API -> REST API Reference), you do not need to generate and pass an authentication token. You only need the token when running a call from an outside application.
2. If you receive a 500 response code with an error message of "Internal Server Error" to your POST/PATCH call, that typically indicates there is a syntax error in the payload. To confirm and troubleshoot this, use an online JSON validator (such as JSONLint - to review your syntax and identify errors.
3. If you're incorporating our REST API within a program, one tip to accelerate the development process is to use a third-party API tool such as Postman. You can copy the cURL our Swagger UI outputs and paste it in Postman (Import -> Paste Raw Text) to build your API call - just add the Authentication header before running. Once you've verified your call is set up correctly, click Code, then select your language from the dropdown. This will automatically give you a script for the API call in your language.

Thanks a lot. I was having issues calling an API from a jupyter notebook but following your procedure with postman helped me fix the connectiont and troubleshoot what I was doing wrong in my code.
