  1. Navigate to the API Explorer and click Customer.
  2. Click Query and enter Select * from Customer for the request. 
  3. Click Try it!

  1. Scroll down to the request and response components of the API call. In particular, view Response Body to see the current list of customers in your QuickBooks sandbox account as returned by the data service.
