Verify Setup

Once the program has been executed, we can verify the API is up and running by calling the following cURL command:

curl -X 'GET' \
  'http://${API_SERVICE_URL}:${API_SERVICE_PORT}/api/v1/ping' \
  -H 'accept: */*'

Where:

  • API_SERVICE_URL is the endpoint of the service. If running locally, this will likely be localhost

  • API_SERVICE_PORT is the port exposed for the service. The default port is 8081.

If the service is up and running correctly, you should receive a 200 status.
