Using Pre-Seeded Case Studies in Your DNA App Account for API Practice

When onboarding as an ISV Partner and gaining access to the DNA App account, you are provided with a valuable resource to explore and practice using the DNA API. One of the key features available in your DNA App account is the inclusion of pre-seeded case studies. These case studies offer a range of behavioral profiles and real-life scenarios, allowing you to simulate sample calls on the DNA API and observe the corresponding data in the app and API payloads. This article will guide you on how to utilize these case studies effectively for API practice.
