You can also create the environment variables for your APIs. These variables will reduce your time by changing values manually. For example, you have three environments develop, staging and production.

For all the environments endpoints are the same but of course, domains are different. So you can set an environment variable as a domain URL. Which will automatically change its value according to the current environment.
