3. Create a property
Once you've created an organization, you should create a new property. Click New Property from the organization page.
We encourage users to create a property within your organization to hold non-production adapters for use with learning and testing. You may with to title your new property something like "My Test Property". Give your new property a name, then click Submit.
After clicking Submit, you will be taken to your property page.
4. Create an adapter

5. Run transaction
Now it's time to see what happens when your adapter receives a request. See that URL on the adapter page?
Grab that URL and paste it into the field below and click Run.
All you'll see in the new window is a message about debug mode. Go ahead and close it for now.
6. View transaction log
Refresh the adapter page and you'll see that there's a transaction listed in the log. Click on the transaction to view its log entry.
On the Transaction Log page, you should see something that looks like this:
There you have it - you've created your first adapter. We recommend using this adapter for any testing, training, or configuration.
