In real-world situations, API interactions are completed by your system using a programming language such as PHP, Java, or Ruby on Rails. For practice and testing, however, you can interact with the ORCID API using a range of tools capable of making and receiving HTTP requests. Most desktop HTTP tools (such as cURL) are run in the command line; for those who prefer a graphical interface, web-based tools are a useful alternative.
One popular tool is Google’s OAuth 2.0 Playground, a free, web-based tool developed and maintained by Google.
Please see our hands on API tutorial at: https://info.orcid.org/hands-on-with-the-orcid-api/
Note: ORCID does not maintain the OAuth 2.0 Playground – this tool was created by Google, who exclusively maintains its code. While we update this documentation periodically, there may be some inaccuracies from time to time, as we may not be immediately aware of changes to the OAuth 2.0 Playground.
