Thank you for the Postman collections. They are really useful for studying and testing the API.

It would be useful to have the link to the API documentation here:

Check Point - Management API reference


Very useful post!

Worth updating this with the recently released 1.6.1 version of the Management APIs: 

It has some great new APIs and is available with the latest JHF on R80.40.

Thanks @Eran_Habad & @Omer_Kleinstern
