Somebody [posted this 3P tool][1] a while back. I had a quick look back then and it seemed helpful, but I haven't yet really sunk my teeth into it yet. [1]: https://sdk.intradesys.com/

I've wrote a very quick guide to [using postman to connect to the eBay API]( http://devbay.net/blog/2015/03/22/using-postman-to-connect-to-the-ebay-api/). Postman is very simple to use but I thought the guide may be of use to someone.

Getting rid of something as useful and popular as the API Test Tool is a terrible idea. What were they thinking?

That's great news! Thanks eBay for restoring this tool! (The link provided by the OP of this thread seems to go directly to the tool, and I also see it listed in my eBay Dev account dashboard.)

Funny, I was looking all over the place for that link last week, saying to myself, I know it's around here SOMEWHERE....but I guess it's no more

I haven't tried Postman yet, but that's a very good-looking guide, David. Kudos.

@davidtsadler, the tutorial is very clear. I have already tested it but I did'nt pay enough attention to the details, so I gave up. By reading the tutorial I realize I've made some mistakes, I'll try it again. Thanks.

That's great to hear. At one point I did debate whether to write the article or not. I'm glad I went ahead with it in the end.

Thanks for the clarification, Andreas. I was commenting in general about my hesitation regarding the security of 3P tools. But then I re-found and had a closer look at your API Playground, and it looks like you guys are pretty sensitive to security and addressing the handling of said data well. Next time I need to fiddle with the Trading API, I'll be visiting your site/tool to give it a whirl. (I think eBay should link to your tool from that above "API Test Tools" page.)

Thank you so much @helios825, this tool [ https://sdk.intradesys.com/ebay_api_sdk_test_tool][1] is great ! I submitted my sandbox token, I made a test online ("Live API Playground"), testing GetStore for example, and it worked ! And it seems faster too. Thanks !
