3. Update your API in Projects

You now have an API project to work with.
1. Click on your new project tile to work with it.
2. You will land on the API Project Dashboard. It wont have much to see yet.
3. Go to "Configurations". This is optional but good to know for later.
    - If you know some credentials and variables you want to include, you can import them or set them up now.
    - If not, you can skip this for now. There are default ones provided to edit and replace.
4. Go to "Playbooks". It may take a few minutes for the playbooks to populate, 
you need to wait for this before performing a scan.
