Occasionally, you'll need to update your bearer token when using Postman to test APIs. Below, I'll describe how to find the token in your local application. This is one of those tasks that seems to happen frequently enough that I should know how to do it, but infrequently enough that I can never remember. Here's a reminder for future me (and maybe current you!):

First make sure your console is open to the network tab so that you will have access to this info: image.png

Locate the response from the /login call: image.png

And BOOM -- there it is in the response tab:

Hopefully this saves future me an hour of research the next time this happens. :)
