JSON

I do this a lot in my work. Generally it is up to how the server wants
to receive the JSON. There are several ways to do it depending on the verb
the server side is looking for. Is this for some kind of public API or do
you have any information on the API you are trying to work with?

Usually I just put whatever JSON I am looking for into a variable and
simply " post theOjbectVariable to URL (theEndpointURL) "

You can also use put instead of post to get the http PUT verb. Some API's
provide a hacky way to use PATCH verbs as well by specifying the verb in
the header.
