Step 3. Create your first API route

The newly created mock API does not include a route on. You can create a new endpoint by clicking on the orange + Create New Mock button at the top of the endpoint list:

Step 4. API endpoint configuration

You can further customize your endpoint by adding a custom header and the following sample body (which makes use of EazyMock's templating system):

// Sample body
  [
  {{# repeat 5}}
  {
    "description": "Tutorial {{faker.paragraph}}",
    "date": "{{faker.date_time}}"
  }
  {{/ repeat}}
  ]

You can create a more complex configuration by adding multiple responses triggered by rules. Which explained specifically here
